The Past is the Present-TART VINTAGE SALON

I had the pleasure of meeting fellow vintage fashionista Naomi Thompson in London last year. A charming proper english girl who served me tea and biscuits in her vintage salon style apartment and showed me some of the gorgeous vintage dresses that she sells on her site
She has now taken her charm and love of vintage and blended it into TART one of London's best events for fashionistas.

Hosted at the decadent 40 Winks by the dandyesque David Carter, pin-up queen Fleur de Guerre and Naomi Thompson pictured above, Tart is the ultimate afternoon of naughty self indulgence, seductive style and decadent pampering. It has quickly established itself as one of London's must–do monthly events.

January's event includes cosmetics brand Benefit's Lisa Potter Dixon, Benefit's beauty guru and events manager who will to share her tips on how to create the perfect look for 2010.

Hendrick's cocktail mixing masterclass utilising the potent properties of the world’s
most unusual gin.

Fleur de Guerre the pin-up queen who will be launching a series of classes for
girls who have always dreamt of becoming 1940s silver screen vixens with expert advice on
vintage hair and make-up.

Katie Halford, lingerie designer and owner of What Katie Did, will be sharing her ‘stocking
secrets’ over the course of the afternoon (how to put them on, how to take them off and how
to hold them up when you’ve got them up..)

Also fashion and accessory designers who will be showcasing their work over the next few months include Uma Turan,Miss Magou, Jessica de Lotz, Laura Strand, Rachael Hannah, Tallulah Love, SVE, Nahoko Kojima and Ornella Iannuzzi.
