Debuting at Bay View’s own fabulous best beer bar, The Sugar Maple, you are invited to the Retro Revue. This exciting event literally embodies the bloom of May by combining a fashion exhibition, curated fashion show, sale, and all around engaging experience that only the Milwaukee community can provide!
The fashion exhibition will feature an array of vintage and retro women/men’s clothing and accessories from the 1940’s on to the 1980’s. Modern vintage-inspired and upcycled clothing will also interpret fashion from these eras, all of which exemplify the collection of seven local members (TBA) of our MKE community, with some items available for sale (private collections, not vintage/resale shops; all items will be sold “As Is”).
A narrated fashion show elevates the day by featuring complete head-to-toe period ensembles that step through time, compliments of our hand-picked vendors and volunteers, and starring local models of all ages. Co-curators of this event are Linda Beckstrom, Dana Hanson, Colleen Kassner and Amy Olson.
This special event is free to attend with a $5 suggested donation at the door for Sojourner Family Peace Center, which provides education, advocacy and resources to keep families safe from domestic violence, https://familypeacecenter.org/.
Beer and cocktail specials graciously provided by the Sugar Maple. Guests under 21 must be accompanied by a parent.
Bring cash for vendor purchases; the venue has no ATM.
Some volunteers are needed, but vendor slots are filled. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for volunteer opportunities.
Event will run from 2pm – 5pm with the Fashion Show kicking off at 3pm.
For extra fun attend and dress in your marvelous best! #RetroRevueMKE
