The Great Gatsby era of fashion, furniture and films has helped motivate the arrival of The Sydney Fair – Art Deco *Vintage *20th Century, featuring a fabulous array of antiques, art and enticing vintage fashion and objet d’art. Art Deco antiques and Retro furniture will be on show side by side with 1950’s Danish sleek and classical Gustavian chic. The first homage to Modernism of its kind in Australia, the fair will be held at Sydney from Thursday 13th June to Sunday 16th June 2013 in the Byron Kennedy Hall of the Entertainment Quarter at Moore Park.
It will showcase the ‘Gatsby’ era, which the author F Scott Fitzgerald himself gave the title of the Jazz Age. Highlighting the staggeringly wealthy Art Deco style of Jay Gatsby’s time, which was all about a revolution of art, design and style for the modern age, the organisers are planning a luxury ‘vintage emporium of international scale’. There will certainly be a great deal for fashion forward vintage lovers longing to see gorgeous original beaded flapper dresses, rare iconic headpieces, captivating cloches, piles of swinging pearls and jet beads, glorious diamond rings, as well as sensational shawls.
A bevvy of the very necessary Bakelite bangles and necklaces will help to ensure that fashion followers will be able to become lost in a sea of sequins, feathers and all sorts of fancies, which are a testament to the roaring ‘20s era.
One of Australia’s leading gemologists and vintage jewellery experts, Elizabeth Stevens will showcase her own fabulous collection. Some of her pieces were used in the ‘Gatsby’ movie, while Elizabeth Kwan has a diamond ring inspired by one of the Tiffany‘s number sworn in the movie by actress Carey Mulligan as Daisy. At its heart is a 4.24 carat diamond, sure to send any prospective bride’s heart a’fluttering and her would-be groom’s heart a pounding at the price!
