It won’t be the latest trends on display at the Broken Hill Quota Club’s ‘Sip in Style’ fashion parade, but that’s all part of the fun.
Quota member Helen Buddle said more than 150 outfits had been donated for the parade of fashions from yesteryear by club members and the public.
Mrs Buddle said she was “absolutely amazed” by the number and quality of the donations.
Models will wear some of the outfits from the 1930s to 1990 and others will be out on display.
The oldest garment to be shown is an original bone corset from the early 1900s.
The fashions also include a wedding gown from each era and “going away” outfits worn by brides when they left for their honeymoons. There is also debutante dresses and other special outfits.
A display room will feature baby and children’s clothes plus miscellaneous items of a ‘bygone’ era.
The Quota Club’s Sip in Style will be held at the Trades Hall on Saturday, June 16 at 1pm and will include an English-style afternoon tea.
Tickets cost $25 each and they are on sale at Broken Hill Print in Picton Street, South BH.
