On monday i did my first proper lecture for Winchester fashion week. Now i’ve spoken to people before, done minor talks but this was my first talk with a BIG audience. 71 people turned up, which for a little lecture in the Winchester Discovery centre was pretty amazing.I spoke about 1950’s fashion, and i think my passion for the topic really cam across! People had wonderful things to say and were so kind about the pieces from my ever growing collection which i took with me. Winchester fashion week is happening all this week. There are lots of great events still to happen such as the Cirque du fashion shows. These are just a few of my own pics, but when i get hold of the other from the WFW team i’ll upload those too.

Also you may notice i have rather spiffing hair and make up. This was done by the Vintage Hair Lounge in Southampton who i played at being a model for on Monday morning. I’m going to write a bit more about them in my next blog post!
It is now just over a week until I get to talk about my passion for the 50’s at Winchester fashion week!
This is the blurb for my talk
The Fabulous Fifties: Frocks and Florals Lecture
by Liz Tregenza
16:00-17:00 @ Winchester Discovery Centre
The 1950s was a period of great cultural and social change. Britain was leaving behind the austerities and restrictions of World War Two and people were embracing a more positive future. But what did this all mean for fashion? Come and find out about the fashions of every day people and the influence of couture and be taken through a wonderful journey of full skirts, florals and frivolity. There will also be the opportunity to see some examples of 50s costume and accessories from Liz’s personal collection.
- Tickets for this event will cost £3. To book please call Winchester Discovery Centre on 01962 873603
There are many other fabbity fab events happening over the week too which I highly recommend anyone in the Winchester area to check out.
These are just a few of my favourite pieces that I will be taking along with me
