words by Abbey Luckhurst
Do you often find yourself dreaming of the wardrobe Carrie flaunted in Sex and The City? Filled with vintage Chanel dresses matched with vintage Louis Vuitton shoes? Well here’s your chance to start your own vintage collection - or maybe just add to the one you already have.
With over 1200 stunningly beautiful high end vintage pieces, hunted and gathered from all over the world, the Hawkeye Vintage pop up shop is an absolute must for anyone with a love of designer vintage and an eye for one-off items including accessories from the 60’s to the 90’s.
Danielle Goodwin, Founder of Hawkeye Vintage, developed a love of everything vintage from a young age with a mother who worked in antiques. As she grew older so did her love of vintage. Quickly running out of wardrobe space to house her ever growing collection of designer vintage pieces, Danielle decided to create online vintage shop, Hawkeye Vintage.
She’s now bringing it to life from the 27th to the 29th of March with her pop up event set to take place in South Yarra. If you enjoy the hunt for new vintage for your wardrobe - from designers such as Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Dior, D&G, Versace, Missoni, Chloe, Hermes, Fendi, and Givenchy (phew) - this is where you need to be.
On top of scoring yourself a unique piece, you’ll also be earning good karma points with every dollar you spend. Vintage shopping supports environmental sustainability and 10% of sales from the Hawkeye Vintage pop up is going straight to Make-A-Wish Australia who grant wishes to terminally ill children. This is an amazing opportunity to not only shop consciously but help make some wishes come true and enrich the lives of unwell kids too.
Want some extra spending money for the day? Like the Hawkeye Vintage Facebook page, follow them on Instagram and share their event flyer with #hawkeyevintage and you’ll be in the running to win a $500 voucher to spend at the sale.
For vintage lovers who want the full experience, there’s an exclusive VIP launch party on the 26th of March where you’ll be treated to a fashion show, live DJ and complimentary drinks, nibbles with a gorgeous goodie bag supplied by the sponsors! Tickets for the VIP launch party are available by emailing Danielle@hawkeyevintage.com.
Entry to the pop up is free and you can RSVP on their Facebook event - or just rock up and frock up.
