Painted Bird is one of Auckland’s best vintage shopping spots and owner and stylist Stephanie King is passionate about teaching women how to shop sustainably and with style. She has carefully curated a beautiful range of genuine vintage clothing for her North Shore boutique and her obsession with vintage and retro is matched only by her commitment to sustainable shopping. Stephanie’s mantra is “buy once, buy right.” Stephanie loves helping women find their personal style and is hosting a series of styles workshops to break through barriers of shopping sustainably and ethically, with encourage attendees to explore her selection of exquisite European vintage clothing.
Stephanie is a life long vintage fan and has sought out gorgeous garments from across the decades, along with current on-trend ethically made accessories so these timeless styles can be incorporated into existing wardrobes. From the decadence of Art Deco, the elegance of mid-century fashion, and the exaggerated styles of the seventies and eighties, Stephanie has it covered and is an incredibly knowledgeable guide for those new to vintage shopping. Her clients appreciate two kinds of feel-good: knowing that they’re wearing a gorgeous, uniquely authentic item, and that this fashion creates no negative environmental impact.
The Sunday Style Series of workshops explore a range of topics from accessorising to dressing deco style and lots more. The first couple have already taken place with great success and there are two more Sunday workshops to come on Sunday 11th August and Sunday 18th August. Tickets are available now from Eventbrite.
