Be transformed into a 50s pinup!

Published on 30 March 2015

Bohemian Finds, a vintage inspired clothes shop in the Harpur Centre, is unveiling its new spring collection on Saturday 4th April and as part of the celebrations is staging a “live window display”, as well as giving customers the chance to transform themselves into 1950’s pin ups!

Shoppers will be able to view the new collection “live”, as two models showcase the stunning new range in the store’s window.  Sarah Dunn, of Sarah’s Doo-Wop Dos, will also be in the shop from 12noon to 3pm, offering all customers taster hair and make-up sessions.  From vintage victory curls to winged eyeliner and bright red lipstick, shoppers will have an opportunity to turn themselves in beautiful 50’s starlets before browsing Bohemian Find’s new selection of spring attire.

“We wanted to do something a little bit different to launch our new spring collection and what better way than to get some of our beautiful customers to model the range!” explains Gretchen Larkin, owner of Bohemian Finds.

“We believe fashions from the 40’s and 50’s suit everyone and having live models in our shop window will help us show this.  Sarah will also be adding a little bit of retro magic with her makeovers so it will be a fantastic day and we hope everyone will come along and help us celebrate,” adds Gretchen.

To be in with a chance of winning simply submit your details, along with a covering photograph to  The two winners will be chosen at random on Monday 30th March.
