Paper Dress Collection Catwalk Launch

Paper Dress is one of the landmark vintage shops of East London, putting on great musical events as well as serving a mean cuppa. They've also now designed their own range of vintage-inspired pieces, soon available to order on their site. There've been a lot of 'vintage inspired' collections recently, only some of which have really worked-I haven't seen this range in the flesh yet, so can't guarantee quality and so forth, but I do think they seem to capture the eras perfectly.It helps that they are constructed with genuine vintage fabrics and trimmings using traditional techniques. Pictures by Tony Hutchings.

Rose: 50's inspired strapless, sheering back, print sun dress.

Elizabeth: Floaty 60's inspired scallop waist detail skirt

Sandy: 60's inspired floral baby doll mini dress

Grace: 40's inspired, structured cropped bolero

The launch event for the collection is on the 11th August, with two catwalk shows at 7.30pm and 9pm, with live music and DJs. Paper Dress is located at 114-116 Curtain Rd, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3AH.

Love the look of that shift dress. I wonder if they're made with vintage materials too? Make it more authentic and reduces waste - win, win! Thanks for the tip off!

That cropped bolero is gorgeous. I'm on brick lane every weekend, I must pop in and see it in all it's glory when it's available.

Thanks for getting in touch Katie, I just wanted to let a few more bloggers know about my fab July Giveaway. A cool necklace, also worn by Jessie J:
