I love vintage treasures, it’s no secret. There's something special about the way vintage pieces tell a story, the way they embody quality and craftsmanship, and the way they’ve meant something personal to so many people as they've been handed down generation after generation. 

Vintage fashion, in particular, had and always will have a place in the style ecosystem. Nowadays, many women shop based on trends or fads, and they impulse-buy cheap fast fashion knowing they’ll buy something else to replace it a month later. Mainstream modern fashion has lost its value, its meaning, its purpose, and I’ve never felt as connected to contemporary clothing as I always have to vintage fashion.

Vintage fashion is the antitheist of fast fashion, and buying preloved clothing is a sustainable way to shop. If it’s not something you’ve ever done before, now is the perfect time to dip your toes in a world of all things yesteryear.

Running from this Thursday, August 9th through to Sunday, August 12th, the Melbourne Fair hosts dozens of exhibitors with furniture, decorative arts, antique jewellery, books, fashion, vintage couture, and all things luxury.

Sixty of the country’s best antique and vintage dealers will come together under one roof and open their treasure troves to the public, and there’ll be rare and collectable extravagances on offer. 1950s Dior dresses, 1960s Pierre Cardin and Paco Rabanne collectables, and 1970s Courrèges couture... I'm clearing space in my wardrobe to prepare as we speak.

Buy your tickets at themelbournefair.com.au and come treasure hunting with me this weekend at Caulfield Racecourse.
