The story behind the Vintage Fashion Fair
The show is the brain child of Paola Francia-Gardiner and Alberto Ricca (Paola is the creative force and Alberto the organisational supreme). An experienced antique dealer, Paola used to buy, sell and indeed wear vintage fashion in the late 70's. At that time, she got to know lot of people who were selling vintage clothes. By the early 90's the market was almost dead - no one was buying the clothes because the fashion scene had moved on. The dealers were complaining to her that they had lots of stock that they didn't know what to do with. With an innovative approach, in 1999 Paola decided to organise a fair that incorporated not just vintage clothes but also accessories and textiles. Paola was the first person to coin the term "vintage fashion" now used in everyday language!Read Less
