Vintage Fashion Show  

The evening kicks off with a fashion show curated by local vintage fashion maven Jenna Lowe of Junie Moon Vintage. Check out this mood board she created for inspiration as she collected looks across the decades. The sweet A-line skirts of the 50s shrink into groovy mini-dresses of the 60s as that flower power morphs into the psycheldic 70s. The neon 80s “material girls” give way to flannel-clad grunge in the 90s, and and the fashion cycle keeps turning with each decade. Which do you love?

We asked Jenna Lowe why she loves vintage, and here’s what she said:

Better quality materials, the attention to detail, and overall unique feel are a few of the reasons why I fell in love with vintage clothing.

I’m also a big fan of sustainability, and choosing vintage clothing is the perfect way to uphold that value when it comes to your wardrobe.

To me, fashion is all about having fun, and I definitely took this to heart when choosing the looks for this upcoming event. I went for pieces that would be entertaining but also easily recognized for the decade they are from.
