Round-up of News

Feeling very buoyant this sunny spring Friday!

A quick reminder that this weekend is the Sydney Vintage Clothing Fair at Canterbury Racecourse - I'll be heading out there tonight (Friday) and it runs until Sunday.

It has been a very busy year for me - my first book (a maritime history biography) was published in February, and I've been involved in a lot of Titanic anniversary events, lecturing and talking to the media on both the disaster itself and the fashion of the era. Hopefully things will settle a bit now - not that I've been neglecting my vintage clothing collecting at all.

I will, of course, be going to the Napier Art Deco Weekend next February, and will be speaking this time on 1920s eveningwear.

Looking forward to catching up with you all!

Gold beaded fringed dress

Hi sydneyflapper,

I came across a picture you posted on the Fedora Lounge of a gold beaded 1920s dress with beaded fringe and a cut out neckline and hoped you might be able to share some information with me.

I am a vintage enthusiast as well -- and I have a nearly identical dress in a slightly different shade of gold silk. I have been flummoxed about the origin and when I came across your pictures I couldn't believe it: we have near-twin dresses! I wasn't sure how else to contact you, so I've posted on your blog in the hopes that you might see it and respond.

Warmly,

Rachel
