This March, step into vintage fashion heaven at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and the Central City Library at our free Vintage Festival. Packed full of vintage fashion experiences, crafting, entertainment, fashion swaps and delicious food, the Festival is sure to offer a great day out for everyone, from vintage enthusiasts to families looking for something different.
Shop up a storm with up to twenty vintage fashion retailers, including Tango and La Dolce Vita Vintage while the Hey Ladies DJs spin vintage tunes. You can also relax in the vintage lounge, tell your woes to an agony aunt, become a mod with Beauty School Dropouts, listen to Dianne Ludwig from Welcome Back Slow Fashion, and enjoy food from Miso Ra and Wood Spirit.
At the Central City Library there will be a hive of sustainable activity. Learn the basics of macramé with Ann Boyd, make a crochet pom pom with artists Lissy and Rudi Robinson-Cole, and swap those old clothes for new threads at our Fashion Exchange in collaboration with Fashion Revolution.
Lookout for our Drag Fashion Police who will guide you between the two locations.
