Best of Vintage Manchester 2012 Awards: Nominations open for ‘Hollywood glamour’ accolades

By Gabriella Swerling

A vintage fashion and lifestyle website is to hold its first awards ceremony later this year, and nominations are now open.

Categories for Best Vintage Fair or Market, Best Vintage Night Out, and Best Vintage Photographer, among others, will showcase and applaud the best of Manchester’s vintage talent.

Vintage Manchester, in collaboration with creative events company The Social Butterfly, is hosting the event on October 17 at jazz club Matt & Phreds.

Susan Earlam, founder of Vintage Manchester, said they decided to host the Hollywood Golden Age themed event in order to celebrate all that is vintage in Manchester.

She said: “The purpose of the event is to create and develop a vintage community in Manchester and to celebrate it.

“It’s also about networking, alliance-building and idea generation on sustaining businesses and collaborating to form new ones.”

Entertainment will include live jazz performances from Kiki De Ville and burlesque star Suzie Sequin as Marilyn Monroe.

The event is sponsored by booze-infused cupcake and jelly company, Pin-ups in Pinnies, who will also be adding a splash of vintage glamour in their authentic 1950s-inspired uniforms.

Ms Earlam added: “It will prove to be both a great networking opportunity and night out for both the businesses and local vintage fans.

“In short, it will be a chance to have a good old knees-up!”

Tickets for the awards ceremony will be on sale from mid-September.
