I love historical fashion, and have been collecting and restoring authentic garments since 1980. Trained as costume designer, I’ve worked in wardrobe and art direction in film and theatre, as well as many years in the fashion and information technology industries before setting up my boutique Circa Vintage Clothing in 2004.
After eight years in Gertrude St, Fitzroy and four in Melbourne’s Mitchell House, Circa is now exclusively an online emporium offering over 2,000 unique items over almost 200 years of fashion history.
My first book “Love Vintage” was published by Carter’s in 2009 and won a bronze medal in the International Independent Publisher’s Awards. It’s now sold out but my second book “Style is Eternal” is available, through Melbourne University Publishing.
