Aiming to ‘make the world a more fabulous and glamorous place’, the UK clothing label called Vivien of Holloway produce an exquisite range of dresses and separates that embody ‘the charm of authentic vintage’ with the ‘ease of care to suit modern lifestyles’. Each of these are available in a ‘range of sizes to fit and flatter modern figures.’
For the last 10 years, we have been able to try on these lovely clothes at Christine’s, which was Australia’s sole stockist of this quality reproduction brand. Christine’s also hosted some exquisite events such as craft markets, fashion shows, live rockabilly music from cool bands and of course all the shop parties. Located in the quirky Melbourne city of Fitzroy, the beautiful tiki themed garden at the back of the shop, dubbed the ‘Hula Hangout’ was the perfect venue to have a rockin’ good time.
Although now the door of Christine’s Fitzoy shop has closed, another door has opened to bring the high quality garments from Vivien of Holloway to many amazing boutiques and stockists throughout Australia and New Zeland!
Excited about this new expansion, Christine hopes that soon you won’t have to travel too far to try and buy an amazing new outfit. In fact, some wonderful stores such as Kiss KissBang in New South Wales and Vicious Venus in Melbourne are already stocking the beautiful Vivien of Holloway garments. We will also be offering a selection of the glamorous range right here at the Mallory Holley Studios.
Of course, you can still continue to purchase directly from www.shopatchristines.com or from Christine’s new showroom, which is located in the Melbourne suburb of Carrum Downs. You are most welcome to visit anytime by contacting Christine directly on 0417 144 169 to arrange an appointment for a personal shopping experience.
Christine’s shop and Hula Hangout might not be located in Fitzroy anymore, however we will all treasure our memories of the fabulous parties, such as the exclusive ‘Meet the Maker’ one earlier this year. On this occasion, I caught up with Vivien Wilson, the talented designer and boss lady of this vintage reproduction brand as well as some other wonderful people... aaaaand I also took my camera, so that I could share some pics with y’all.
I had such a delightful time enjoying delicious treats and sipping champagne garnished with strawberries in the company of some stunning pinup dolls, including fellow bloggers Miss Dita Maltese and Miss Maddy Sews. Each of us spent the evening chatting and dressing like vintage godesses in as many of Vivien’s elegant designs as our heart so desired.
It is happy memories such as these that I will always treasure in my heart forever whilst I reminisce on Christine’s beautiful tiki haven, but I am also very excited about everything that the future holds. It will be so wonderful to be able to walk into stores across Australia and New Zealand to try on and buy the glamorous Vivien of Holloway garments.
Until next time, happy new year and I wish y’all the best for 2018.
