Happy Monday V-Fringers! We are now less than 24 hours away from kick starting a week of creative madness that is Ventnor Fringe.
My name’s Poppy Janella, local singer-songwriter and fringe fashionista. I’ll be spending my week performing over the four fabulous stages, as well as scouting out the best dressed fringers’ for our daily paper and website. So there really are no excuses – it’s time to grab your glad rags, throw on your summer hat or even rock your nanna’s jumper – you never know, you may make the front page!
If this sounds like your cuppa’ tea, then take note of my MUST SEE event of the week – “The Vintage, Retro and Craft Fair.” Whether you’re into the rockabilly 50’s, high waists of the 60’s or a big old 70’s platforms, then the craft fair’s old school fashion show is an event not to be missed. Sporting garments from Ventnor’s very own “Oh so vintage…” if you fall in love with something on the catwalk, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to get your hands on it afterwards.
Just to top it off, the Vintage, Retro and Craft Fair is also a FREE FRINGE event, so whilst on your morning stroll, pop down to the Winter Gardens from 10am – 4pm (fashion show at 11am.) – Fri 14th / Sat 15th and soak up those vintage vibes.
