New Zealand was lucky to have one of Australia's top vintage stylists visiting our shores over the last few weeks,
presenting at the Craft & Quilt Fairs and hosting private styling workshops at 19 Black in Hamilton and Kabella Baby in Christchurch.
When you meet Chrissy you can see she is truly passionate about the bygone era; a true vintage fashionista, who looks impeccable no matter what she's wearing. When Chrissy stepped out onto the Lindy Charm School custom stage in a stunning vintage Paku Moo gown, we knew we were in for a treat!
The historical information about fashion and style really came to life with the use of local models, who wore the vintage garments while Chrissy explained each piece and shared some really gorgeous stories about the past owners of the garments and their provenance.
The Lindy Charm School also had lots of styling goodies up for grabs on the merch table, from hair styling essentials like the must have 'setting lotion' to hair flowers, to the Charm School makeup range.
Glory Days contributor, and blogger The Sweet Painted Lady (pictured below), was one of the models in the Hamilton lineup, saying "I really enjoyed it, Chrissy is passionate about what she does and it shows. I left feeling re-inspired!"
