Vintage French fashion revived

2 October, 2011

Old Bus Depot Markets Stallholder: Vintage CreationVintage Creation is a welcome addition to our markets. Offering new prints of retro to vintage French fashion, there’s also a great selection of handbags made from reclaimed leather and Florence Broadhurst fabrics.

The business, run by Leisa Hoare, revives the memory of vintage French fashion. With an original magazine collection dating from 1890 French Fashion Magazines to Art Nouveau 1920s, and through to 1940 Art Deco French Fashion Magazines, Vintage Creation prints this history of fashion on cotton silk and canvas, and as posters and card stock big enough to frame. Leisa has also created a range of handbags including a style with an interchangeable top that can be updated using different fabrics, and the new “seven way bag” which can be used as a clutch bag, sling bag, backpack and more. Vintage Creation will be at the markets once a month, and then every second Sunday throughout November and December.
