An evening of where fascinators, fancy frocks and fabulous cabaret stole the show...
Furs, frocks and all manner of vintage fripperies flounced to the music of several decades at the first ever Grand Vintage at the Rivoli Ballroom on Saturday 26 September.
1950's jivers sized up glam 70's disco queens and 80's retrosexuals at the ball offering fine London folk an opportunity to don their best vintage and retro outfits.
Contestants in the Vintage Attire Pageant competed fiercely for the first prize of a bottle of Babycham and quality satin rosette. Categories included, Dictators wife, Retrosexual, and most dapper gentleman.

Tunes from Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Whitney Houston and Erasure encouraged revellers of all ages throw serious shapes on the dancefloor.Disc jockeys on the night included designer extraordinaire Julian Smith and femme fetales the She Set. Comperes on the night - the fabulous alternative cabaret act Bourgeois & Maurice who grilled contestants on everything from their most hated celebrity to most embarrassing moment, revealing a lot more than a vintage corset in the process.

The next ball will be held at the Rivoli on Saturday 8 May!
