Belle of the Ball


There’s no better way to dazzle this party season than in vintage. Styles may come and go but we’ll always love a celebration and you’re guaranteed to find a style that suits.

From 1950s rock ‘n’ roll frocks to 1980s puff sleeves or even a truly special, early-century evening gown for more formal affairs, it’s an invitation to look and feel unique at the Christmas party this year. For vintage with a modern-trend twist opt for a festive tartan cocktail dress (and don’t forget your petticoat) or for true Hollywood glamour you won’t find anything more stunning than a floor-length, 1940s number.

There’s also plenty of smart vintage attire for gentleman to stand out from the sea of suits and ties. Prohibition era waistcoats, bow ties and brogues are ideal for bringing the spirit of decadent parties in to the here and now. Accessories for men are the key to looking dapper; swap your tie for a cravat, add a pocket square and a classic, understated watch to make the right impression.

The style team at The Angel Resident Magazine  are so taken with vintage this winter they’ve shot evening dresses from Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair for their December issue fashion focus to “dress to impress”. Look out for the magazine around our home in Clerkenwell and our emerald green velvet dress on the cover will surely catch your eye. The fashion team know how to style a look too and we’ll be taking their tip of pairing our evening dresses with some bold coloured jewels.

We know there’s nothing worse than arriving in the same dress as another fellow party-goer, and we believe there’s nothing better than feeling your most fabulous in something one-of-a-kind. You’ll find plenty of glitz and glamour to be snapped up at our Christmas fair on 24th November to transform you in to the belle or beau of the ball.
