We attended the Clifton Hill Costume and Textile event on April 18th, put on by Jezebel Events. Clifton Hill Costume and Textiles is an antique and vintage costumier and haberdashery suppliers, re-opening after the owner and founder Gillian Hodder passed away early in 2011. After extensive refurbishment of the building, and the long, but amazing experience of sorting through her vast-30 year-collection, the shop has just reopened.
To celebrate the opening of the shop and show off some fine outfits, Clifton Hill Costume & Textiles hosted an evening of glamour, fashion catwalk and fun. It Featured a live tableaux with models in situ wearing amazing vintage outfits, music, stalls and a catwalk show, the event was held in the superb Clifton Hill House in the Bristol University Halls and is only a couple of minutes’ walk from the shop itself!
