Hey Hope everyone is enjoying the summer sunshine, because we certainly are!
Last week we hosted a special 2 day Motel Vintage Pop Up Shop in London and had an exclusive preview ahead of the launch and wanted to share some insider info and pics with you all!
The Motel Vintage Pop Up preview was held in our London HQ which was converted into a retro vintage den for the night with cute tea cups, a 1970's vintage bar and a pretty awesome record player spinning some tunes. The lovely girls from Rockalily Cuts were on hand to create 1950's hair for guests with impressive up-do's and glam victory rolls. We also had the lovely team from The Vintage Cosmetics Company showcasing their new range of accessories and beauty products and offering fluttery false eyelashes by their professional make-up artist.
A party isn't a party without some sweet treats right?! Our local cake-making friends, Masters, made us some delicious sweet snacks to nibble on though out the evening, from the infamous to the one-is-never-enough chocolate brownies, we definitely indulged for the night! All the snacks and drinks were presented in cute vintage tea cups and plates courtesy of The Vintage Sisters which we wanted to keep and take home with us!!
If you haven’t heard about the jewellery brand Gogo Philip then you have definitely been missing out. They sell bold statement jewellery pieces that can make any look turn up! Their key style is gold plated jewellery inspired by 90's and urban culture with a modern twist. (Think Salt-n-Pepa huge hoop earrings) and they were also selling some of their latest styles at the Pop Up shop.
Our Motel Vintage collection has a mixture of different styles with inspiration from 80's and 90's culture and all reworked from original vintage garments. There were iconic Levi jeans showcased as well as floral shirts, pinafores and 2 piece bralett and shorts sets. A favourite was the PE style shorts and Adidas cardigans which was a big craze in the 80s. Guests were also going crazy for our cute 50's style cropped tie front shirts, which are available online now at Motelrocks.com too!
We all had a great time here at Motel and we hope that everyone that attended and shopped the Motel Vintage collection did too! Keep in the loop with all our future events, Pop Up shops and sample sales on our social media at the links below;
