“Vintage Selection 21: Go to the Future” in Florence

From 23rd to 27th January 2013, the famous and glamorous vintage fashion trade show Vintage Selection comes back in Florence. A real festival that pays homage to the vintage culture and every six months shows its visitors a new program of exhibitions, events and initiatives.

Stazione Leopolda, the beautiful, old station dating back to the half of 19th century, and Spazio Alcatraz, a former two-floor warehouse, will host this great fashion event open to the public with admission charge.

An event for vintage fashion enthusiasts and collectors, people who wish to look for something original and also fashion designers and creative people working in the fashion world who are looking for different and innovative cues in their never-ending stylistic research.

The theme of this edition is Missione Futuro (“Mission Future”) and shows the representation of future as it was imagined during 50’s and 60’s. The project I-Love-Archive, result of the collaboration between Stazione Leopolda and Pitti Immagine comes back with a new selection of images called “Future Trend” and look into the most innovative side of period fashion.

A new initiative of 2013 edition of Vintage Selection will be TeatroDramma, five appointments taking place everyday from 5 to 5.30 pm, which want to tell “L’Enciclopedia delle Donne” in an ironic and surreal tone, a cult publication of 60’s dedicated to the women universe, together with screenings of some scenes of famous science-fiction movies of the period.

In addition, visitors can’t miss the new Workshops, classes about the relationship between fashion design and vintage (from 4 to 5 pm) organized by the most famous Italian fashion schools, and Vintage Tours, an exhibition showing period pieces like Vespas, Lambrettas and other two- or four-wheeled vehicles.

Once again, visitors will also find Miss&Mister Vintage, the competition of the best vintage couple at the exhibition, and Tag Automatica, the photocabine from which visitors will have the chance to post their pictures wearing clothes offered by exhibitors on this occasion on their favourite social networks.

As usual, visitors will also have the chance to enjoy their aperitifs in the Lounge Area at the happy hour (from 6 to 9 pm) and the Dance Floor with djs and vjs.
