GIRL.STOLE.VINTAGE TEMPLE OF TREASURE
Masonic Temple, Andaz Liverpool Street
40 Liverpool Street, London
Open 10am – 4pm, March 31st - April 1st 2012
To celebrate London’s vintage culture and as part of the Andaz Salon series, Andaz Liverpool Street is partnering with GIRL.STOLE.VINTAGE to transform the Hotel’s charming Masonic Temple into a Vintage Shopping Boudoir. The pop-up event, held from 10am to 4pm on Saturday March 31st and Sunday 1st April, will offer a truly unique shopping experience for fashion lovers, local vintage junkies and London visitors alike.
Leresse Atkinson, founder of GIRL.STOLE.VINTAGE, is a fashion blogger with an independent online vintage boutique on cartel as well as ASOS Marketplace. Known for her collections found among vintage markets throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, the one-off shopping weekend will be an exclusive chance to access her collection first hand.
The Hotel’s Grade II listed Masonic Temple will be turned into a vintage style boudoir with an old world 1920s feel. Alongside GIRL.STOLE.VINTAGE’s latest collection, retro hair and make-up specialists Lipstick & Curls will be on site to transform visitors into a jazz era flapper girl, a starlet from Hollywood’s golden age, a rock n roll pin-up or a Mad Men sex kitten.
Live music from Shoreditch based folk band Erin K Tash will set the scene and tea, cupcakes and old-fashioned pastries, created by Andaz head pastry chef Paul Hosick, will be served.
‘‘East London is famous for its vintage scene and it is important to us to embrace and support a much-loved local industry. Working with GIRL.STOLE.VINTAGE, we will be able to introduce our guests to the eclectic mix of vintage shops in the area, providing them with a true insight in to what the vibrant neighbourhood of Shoreditch is really about.” Arnaud de Saint Exupéry, Andaz Liverpool Street General Manager
