Imagine strolling along the marina, surrounded by classic boats and sailboats, while elegantly dressed attendees transport you to another era.

The Best of Vintage Chic

The National Vintage Fashion Awards showcase the best of vintage fashion. Participants compete in two distinct categories, allowing for a wide range of styles and eras to be celebrated:

  1. True Vintage: In this category, authenticity and period accuracy take centre stage. Participants showcase their originality, unique fabrics, and the ability to emulate a specific period or style. Whether it’s authentic vintage clothing or pieces created from vintage materials or templates, the focus is on capturing the essence of a bygone era.
  2. Reproduction: For those who embrace modern creations inspired by vintage aesthetics, the Reproduction category is a broad canvas. It welcomes items that mimic vintage styles, offering a nod to the past with a contemporary twist. Judges consider the overall aesthetic and how well the total look is presented.

Entertainment Galore

In addition to the captivating fashion displays, the Geelong Revival 2023 offers a wide range of entertainment for all attendees.
