If you're in Durban and you haven't heard about this yet, you'd better listen up! Retro Let's Go is a super cool new event happening for the first time on the 27th April at the DLI Hall. It's going to be an awesome market selling vintage and retro goods and more, followed by a fifties dance in the evening! How flipping awesome!
Word from the bird is that the DLI will be transformed into a hip, happening joint, with sounds from the jukebox, girls in full skirts, beehives, boys in their Don Draper best, shoppin’ and boppin’ like its 1956!
There will be a market from 9am-1pm featuring carefully selected and curated vintage and modern retro-inspired clothing, antiques, jewellery, books, treats and anything else delightfully old-school! With a tailor and hairdresser on stand by, a Bean Green pop-up coffee shop and much much more - market-goers won’t be able to resist spending the morning and be rip, roaring and ready for the Retro, Let’s Go 1950s Dance that night where Dr Fly & The Nurses and Veranda Panda will be a-swinging!
One of the first things that came to mind when I was thinking about this was Archie comics. I was a total Archie comic geek and loved the whole vibe they had going... Ah the good ol' days. Here's some outfit inspiration from Betty and Veronica!
The second thing that came to mind was Grease. More just retro than fifties, but still great for some inspiration... And just to stare into young John Travolta's eyes for a bit...
