Velvet Vintage April 2012

The second edition of the Hanoi Flea Market is on its way. Velvet Vintage (the vintage project I've been working on with Virginie for almost a year now) is once again participating to this highly popular event. YES Vietnamese girl (and Boys) are MAD about vintage.

This time as we didn't have time to travel to Europe and Canada, we went to markets, second hand shops and private sellers around Asia. From Phnom Penh to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Vientiane and Bangkok we carefully scrutinized all potential garments and accessories. As we assumed the quality wouldn't be as good as in the West, we were being really careful keeping our eyes open to any defaults. It's actually the same, YES some pieces need mending and it's relatively more difficult to find good sellers but if you are patient enough and you dig good you'll find treasures. During our quest we discovered some interesting and singular shops where we found the most incredible pieces.

For this edition, Hanoi Flea Market went with a theme, and they chose to do a 1970s revival, Hippies and gypsies inspired. "The Summer of Love". So we basically focused our search on the 1970s. BUT temptation was too strong, and we couldn't miss the oportunity to acquire some amazing pieces from other decades.

I've already uploaded some pictures of the garments on our blog: velvetvintagefashion.tumblr.com and on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Velvet-Vintage-Retro-Trash-Fashion/205049499522760. Here are also some pictures from my favorites.

And come join us at the Hanoi Flea Market on the 6th of May at No264 Au Co
Str, Tay Ho Dist, Ha Noi. Time: 9:00 a.m – 5 p.m.
