Opening Party Tonight, May 4, 5pm to 9pm!
Inspired by les Demimondes in turn of the century France, Mi Manchi is vintage boudoir photography that leaves mystery to the imagination. Exhibiting as part of the Contact Photography Festival (www.scotiabankcontactphoto.com), Cabaret Vintage is honoured to host the exhibit May 4-31.
Transforming Cabaret Vintage into a traditional Speakeasy, this Friday’s opening show will feature turn-of-the-century photography, music, & Victorian hor d’ouerves provided by Nutrition Kitchen. National Post’s Happy Hour columnist Adam McDowell will be on hand, crafting a cocktail founded in 1800s New Orleans. And winner of the “Legends’ Choice Award” at The Great Burlesque Exposition in the United States, St. Stella will be performing turn-of-the-century burlesque.
Last featured on Fashion Television, TVO, XTRA! and receiving critic’s pick in Now Magazine, photographer Paddy Jane & Cabaret Vintage’s last Contact festival collaboration, The Original Hustler, reimagined the Prohibition Era in the 1920s. Spotlighted by the BBC and New York Times as one of the world’s top vintage destinations, the duo is happy to be creatively collaborating in a whole new era.
