I am super excited about the upcoming vintage fashion show – Glamour Fabric, & Glorious – on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at Collector’s Choice Antiques in Lafayette. Stylist JB Kaye has been working hard these past few weeks putting together 25 ensembles with antique and vintage clothing from the early 1900s to the 1980s. JB is a master at mixing eras to create unique looks for modern women.

Tickets are $20 at the door and include afternoon tea.

Glamorous Fabric & Glorious, Saturday November 2, 1-3, Collector’s Choice Antiques, 3574 Diablo Blvd., Lafayette.

Congratulations to Collector’s Choice Antiques in Lafayette on another fabulous fashion show. Styled by Claire E. and Eileen Tong, the show celebrated the Lunar New Year (year of the snake) and featured Chinese style dresses, suits, jackets as well as some beautiful antique Chinese robes.

I tip my hat to Claire on her stylish eye for pairing traditional Asian silhouettes with vintage hats. This combination is a real winner in shifting specific looks to more universal outfits suitable for any dressy occasion.

What struck me is how outstanding these ensembles would be at the opening night of the San Francisco opera or symphony. I say there’s no need for designer duds when one could sport a one-of-a-kind antique Chinese robe.

Collector’s Choice Antiques puts on the most charming fashion shows and lucky for us there’s another in the works scheduled for Sunday, April 14, 2013. The fun starts at 1pm.

Collector’s Choice Antiques is located at 3574 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette. Questions? Give them a call – 925-299-9400.
