FEATURED EVENTS IN TORONTO
Calling vintage fashion lovers!
Come in from the cold and warm up at the latest installment of the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show, Summer of Love.
Toronto’s Vintage Clothing Show is back on March 3 and 4, bringing the largest vintage clothing sale in the city to the Queen Elizabeth Building at Exhibition Place.
With warmer weather (hopefully) on the horizon, shoppers will find a wide array of vintage spring and summer garments along with accessories to match every taste.
The theme of this year’s sale definitley gravitates towards sixties fashion, which is why Jonathan Walford, author of the book “Sixties Fashion, From Less to More to Youthquake” and curator of Canada’s Fashion History Museum was chosen to curate the show.
Leading up to the show, Walford will be hand-picking lots of original and authentic “Summer of Love” outfits so visitors can check them out during the event.
“It’s cool if your fashion tastes gravitate towards the sixties,” says Show Manager, Catherine Knoll in a release.
“But don’t sweat it if they don’t because no matter what- you’re going to find something you’ll love.”
During the clothing sale, top indie clothing boutiques from Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa will be offering thousands of garments from the 1920s to the 1980s.
Vintage shoppers can expect to find lots of new vendors, who have a great eye for sixties goods.
But you won’t only find clothes and accessories, there will also be plenty of hard to find furnishings from the swingin’ sixties including lamps to kitchenware to Rat Pack-era bar wear.
However, the best part is that your admission into the show will also get you into the Antique and Vintage Market happening in the building next door. So you definitley won’t be leaving emptyhanded.
When: March 3, 10 am to 5 pm; March 4, 10 am to 4 pm
Where: Queen Elizabeth Building at Exhibition Place, 180 Princes’ Blvd
Admission: $10 (includes entrance to both events)
