Grand Vintage Ball at the Rivoli

At the glorious Rivoli Ballroom on Saturday September 26th there's a night of vintage clothes, cool music and cabaret:

'The first ever Grand Vintage Ball will be a night of glam music, mindboggling feats of derring-do and decadence. Whilst the powdered preening pansies fight it out at London Fashion week, to see styles plundered from the past, the event will show the real sartorial creativity and design London has to offer. Just like music sampling, which involves rifling through the past with scant regard for periods, styles and eras, the ball will be a non purist homage to the past. Held in the sumptuous environs of the Rivoli Ballroom in Brockley, South East London, the night is the perfect opportunity for the Retrorati and the Sartorial Intelligentsia to don their best vintage and retro outfits and enter the ultimate Vintage Attire Pageant, where they can be crowned Best In Show'.

It runs from 8pm -1am, and tickets are £14.99 plus booking fee. More details at the Grand Vintage Ball blog. Sounds tempting... a return to the magic times of Club Montepulciano's Night of a Thousand Stars? (legendary 1990s club at the Rivoli).
