The Gatsby Winter Soirée - Melbourne Event TICKET GIVEAWAY

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

And so, roaring twenties fashion is back, reinvented and revisited with the upcoming release of the much anticipated movie adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's best selling novel; The Great Gatsby.  Set during a time of beautiful Art Deco architecture, of flapper dresses, pearls, headpieces and dapper suits.

The iconic novel-tuned-movie, has inspired many lavish champagne and vintage cocktail laden parties around the world, with one such event happening right here in Melbourne.

Astor Productions have arranged a ritzy night of hot jazz and chilled champagne, due to kick off at 8pm on Friday 31st May, at the grandeur Malvern Town Hall; The Gatsby Winter Soirée
"Dust off your wingtip shoes, get those flapper dresses out and take a step back to the roaring twenties with The Gatsby Winter Soirée."  

There will be jazz, New Orleans style brass band music, and modern funk/soul repertoire from the 20's and 30's to get your feet tapping, plus classic cars, market stalls, a vintage photo booth and swing dancing performed on the night.

The dress code:  "Dress to impress, swanky and spiffy. Think The Great Gatsby and Boardwalk Empire".  

An opportunity to embrace the elegance, glamour and style of the era, from Flappers to Fly Boys, Dames to Dapper Dans, and all that is celebrated with 20's fashion. 

Here are some ideas:

I think I'll be a flapper,
and by that I don't mean slapper.
Gowns for morning, lunch and tea,
make outfit planning fun for me!
Although a boyish figure is more apt,
I'll make do with a cloche hat.

P.S. Duly 'liked' on FB via the A Little Boutique Near Home page. Great comp!

I don't have a dress that's appropriately 1920s, but I woud love to wear my green velvet coat. It's slinky and trimmed with fur and looks like something Miss Fisher would own.

I would sport red lips, bobbed hair, pearls, a beaded head piece and flapper dress and the fella would be dapper in a waistcoat and trilbies, and we both be up all-night dancing to jazz!

In a white Alannah Hill ruffled dress with a jewelled belt, fur on the shoulders and accessorised with jewels. Finger wave curled hair with my own custom made head piece with pearls, beads and feathers. All touched up with a dark red lip colour and simple eyeliner.
