Dita was here and we love her.
But why vintage? Because vintage is hot. And with the vintage sensibility being popularized by shows like Sex and the City, more and more people are discovering its allure. Vintage has the ability to jazz up today’s couture by adding items from the past with inimitable flare, while keeping what is hippest and hottest from the present – you!
Which is exactly why the stars are flocking to the vintage scene. Indeed, it’s not uncommon to glimpse a famous face browsing and buying from Cabaret’s divinely dazzling racks. The store has been frequented by the likes of Brooke Shields, Helena Christensen, David Arquette, Mandy Moore and Andre 3000, to name a few, and you never know who you might see looking for that classy yet avante garde piece for the next Awards show, or a period piece for an upcoming role.
Perhaps you’re looking to set your style apart from the standard “run of the mall” look. Or maybe you’re seeking the craftsmanship and quality that seem to be a fading feature in today’s fashion industry. Either way, you’ve come to the right place, for Cabaret’s collection features unique originals that have stood the test of time. With most pieces garnered from private collections and estates, Cabaret’s buyers possess a keen eye, and all pieces are hand selected, meticulously restored and utterly unique, like you.
Last week, Toronto-basedartist group Team Macho spent the afternoon at Cabaret in search of the perfect suits. The 5-man crew is known for their themed promo shots. We were therefore delighted to outfit them for a funeral inspired photo shoot.
The pictures are to be used for an upcoming show – “Kitschy, Gay, and Over in a Second” – and are a satirical response to critics who predict the group’s demise.
The show is scheduled to open on September 25th, 2008, at Magic Pony (just down the street from us) and will be on display throughout the month of October; so, check it out and come by Cabaret while your at it.
