Retro, Let’s Go is Durban’s first full day Vintage Festival being held on the 27th April 2013 at the historic DLI Hall.
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!
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…
