It’s retro a-go-go at Canberra’s Old Bus Depot Markets this coming Sunday, 9 October, as the popular markets host the final retro event for 2016, Retro Depot in October.
“It’s time to do as Kylie Minogue says and ‘step back in time’ and take a look at the styles, fashions, clothing and music from the recent past,” said Old Bus Depot Markets’ Director, Anthony Niravong.
“Everything old is new again with the bright colours of the 1960s and 1970s, mid-century furniture, funky retro clothing, macramé and more,” Anthony continued.
One of the Old Bus Depot Markets favourites, Christine Pearce from Pink Flamingo Interiors, is back with her eclectic range of soft furnishings, restored and upcycled furniture. This time around at Retro Depot in October she’ll feature stools and dining chairs in retro style vinyls in hot pink paisley and black and white python. She’ll also have unique side tables covered in flamingo, tropical and cactus fabrics that are then resin coated. Add to this cool lamps, cushions and throws with a Miami mood and of course lots of flamingos and you’re in retro heaven.
Joining in with the retro feel this Sunday is Sydney-based Roseanne O’Neill from Boho Fox. With a background in fashion design and illustration, Roseanne creates all hand cut, Australian made, original designs from her own patterns using high quality and organic cotton. Boho Fox brings retro fashion for men and women to the markets, and the range for Retro Depot in October will include swing skirts, tie-front skirts, retro dresses with tie backs and cool cropped jackets.
“At Retro Depot in October visitors can browse fashion, homewares, furniture, jewellery and accessories that evoke a sense of times gone by and see just how great these things look in today’s world,” Anthony concluded.
Retro Depot in October is on this coming Sunday, 9 October, from 10am until 4pm, entry is free. For more information, visit www.obdm.com.au
