Vintage Style into the Modern Day

Ref: C3673113

Miss Pigeon Vintage has adored and sold vintage and retro homewares and clothing for years. Join in with her enthusiasm for bygone eras and feed your old soul with inspiration on how to mix genuine vintage items with a modern day wardrobe. Explore the colours, fabrics and silhouettes typical of various eras, to gain a greater understanding of how to spot authentic pieces. You will be given the profile of a “customer” who you can get playful with styling up using some of Miss Pigeon Vintage’s stock spanning 1950s-1990s. You will also be given the opportunity to use her creative knowledge on how to wear some of your own vintage finds. All of this set to the background of music from 1920s – 1980’s, to gently encourage a sense of nostalgia and unity while designing your outfits. Use this course as an opportunity to meet like-minded vintage girls and swap knowledge on where to source true vintage, retro and nostalgic clothing.
