We are extremely pleased to announce that our friend Miss Victory Violet will be joining us in store for an EXCLUSIVE event- on how to Perfect Your Pin Up.
Join us in our London store on Sunday February 19th for a day of pin up style and body confidence.
Her website is an absolute treasure trove of information from pin up style, vintage make up, product reviews and just seems to have the answer to anything I need help with!

You will be introduced and fully immersed in the pinup style, learning tips and tricks and everything in between. Whether you are someone who’s been dressing vintage for years or eager novice ready to take the plunge into the style, everyone will learn and take something away from this fabulously fun day. Pin up style has many elements and this event will be your opportunity to glean insights from one of the biggest names in pin up fashion.
You’ll start off learning the how to apply makeup in the typical pinup style from foundation, eye shadow, liquid liner, brows, contouring and of course red lippy!
A trained hairdresser and someone who we've never known to have a bad hair day, Miss Victory Violet will cover essential skills from sculpting curls to victory rolls. She will be doing her hair and makeup along side with you step by step - it's really the best way to learn!

After lunch, our Rowena, owner of Revival Retro will take you through her styling session – how to keep stockings straight, vintage shoes and choosing the right accessories to complete your outfit. A well put together outfit renews not just confidence in our appearance but in ourselves. The small details play a huge role in finishing off a vintage outfit and Rowena will help draw attention to the things that will help make a difference in the way we perceive ourselves and present ourselves in front of the camera.
Miss Victory Violet will then talk about the importance of body confidence, self love and care. Living and growing up in a society that pushes women to conform to mainstream beauty standards can take it’s toll but you can be the change that you want to see in the world. You already know that at Revival we are all about loving your body, and this session will push you to think about how you view yourself and others, and how small changes in your attitude can change your life in more ways than you realize.

I for one can't wait for this, I feel like my pin up styling is stuck in a bit of a rut, and I can't think of anyone better to help me!
