With a Studio 54 theme, The Vintage Show sponsored by Zaks Authentic American Diners, was always bound to be a fun-filled night of fashion.

Set to a fabulous 80s soundtrack, the vintage extravaganza, which took place on Sunday, showcased looks from 13 different retailers and designers, including Kooks Vintage, Sue Ryder Vintage and Hyde Johnson Couture.

The event saw the runway disappear and instead a new seating plan was introduced, allowing models to take a turn around the whole room.

Highlights of the night included dazzling sequin-covered party dresses, 60s Ra-Ra dresses, strong shoulder pads, bomber jackets and a great selection of retro eyewear from Dipple and Conway.

Kerry Curl, one of the show’s coordinators, said: “The show felt electric the entire day even during the prep! Our DJ Will Pointer had put together such an amazing track list that the feeling of disco was in the air right from the rehearsal thanks to a spontaneous outburst of dancing from the production crew.

“Once the doors opened that vibe continued to fill the room and the party carried on. This is how we do vintage at Norwich Fashion Week!”

Norwich Fashion Week runs until Friday, March 17 with events taking place all across the city.
