Most fashion shows highlight the latest fashions from France, Italy and far-off places.

This fashion show will  highlight the hottest fashions of the last 100 years.

The fashions come courtesy of a dedicated group from the Qualicum area, including Merlyn Patten, who have been collecting these costume for well over 25 years, said Irene Hawthornthwaite.

There will be 16 models and dressers, who will help the models dress in the vintage wear.

“People can look back on their lives and look at what they wore when they were young,” said Hawthornthwaite.

There will be a door prize for the best hat during the show.
