VINTAGE FASHION FESTIVAL
After the success of last year edition, for five consecutive weeks between May and June 2012, the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet will host the world of Vintage of which ANGELO is one of the most illustrious representatives. The Vintage Fashion Festival will take around Italy 1500 pieces of clothing, accessories, religious objects and rarities from the late 40's to late 80s. An exhibition dedicated to the charm of the "unique" pieces, that were part of "our" history and a unique opportunity to take home an original Chanel, Hermes, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Christian Dior and many others.
The tour will be accompanied by the exhibition Around the World in 80 scarves, a world tour photographed in popular tourist places and all linked to a precise historical moment, full of profound changes. After the Second World War and the Depression an enthusiasm for discovery turns the scarf a souvenir of possible holidays. No longer only postcards to put away in drawers, or photographs of smiles in front of historic or natural monuments, but a personal choice, even if they want to use it, as well as testimony, souvenirs of the trip: a small square of colored silk, capable to arouse emotions with a private language that belongs to different latitudes. Exhibition of a rich collection of original scarves: authentic pieces of the '40s, '50s and '60s, from countries all around the world.
Veneto Designer Outlet, Noventa di Piave (VE) from May 21 to May 27 from 10 am to 20 pm
