“Whilst vintage culture has become increasingly popular and very much part of our mainstream lifestyle,” says Miss La Vida, Co-founder of the VVDO and burlesque performer. “There are few places where the public can go to find a variety of vintage style products, services and experiences all under the same roof. We’re delighted to be able to bring the vintage community together to create an event which allows lovers of vintage to mix and mingle with each other while show casingthe best of what’s on offer in New Zealand right now.” The event has been created by Miss La Vida and Miss T of Miss T Pinups, who not only excel in their professions within vintage culture, but also have a great passion for it.

Covering every aspect of the vintage experience from clothing to cars, there will be something for everyone at The Very Vintage Day Out. Shoppers will love an array of market stalls selling gorgeous garments, jewellery and items to add that antique touch to homes and gardens, whilst outside a parade ring of authentic vintage automobiles will delight car enthusiasts. A stellar line-up of talented performers from around the country will entertain the crowd throughout the day performing genres from the vintage era including: Charleston, Rock n Roll, Burlesque, Rockabilly and Close Harmony Singing. Attendees are encouraged to get into the spirit of the day with spot prizes for the best dressed ticket holders.

For those keen to learn more about the vintage lifestyle, seminars and classes will run throughout the day, with everything from burlesque and charleston dancing to retro inspired make-up and hair tutorials available. “We’ve got so many wonderful teachers who are leaders in their fields hostinga range of exciting classes, there’s even a ‘Domestic Dolly’ class on offer!” says Miss La Vida. “We want everyone to leave feeling inspired and having learned lots of tips and tricks to add vintage glamour to their everyday lives.”

The Very Vintage Day Out culminates in the crowning of Miss Vintage 2012 later in the day, which is the first pageant of its kind in New Zealand. Seven incredible beauties have been chosen to competefor the title by displaying their vintage inspired talent, charm and skills. The judges include the amazing current Miss Pin Up Australia Bunni Lambada, as well as esteemed costumier Amy Jansen-Leen and the vivacious CEO of Phoenix Cosmetics, Phoenix Renata. It promises to be a fascinating competition of style, substance and smarts as the beauties compete for the dazzling Miss Vintage crown.
