ICONIC 1950s beauty is making a comeback this weekend, with Wintersun ladies having the chance to attend charm school sessions.

Principal of Lindy Charm School for Ladies Chrissy Keepence said the workshops will give aspiring vintage fashion queens a chance to sharpen their skills.

“The charm school gives young ladies the chance to define their look. It’s about keeping traditions alive and letting women know about the options they have,” Ms Keepence said.

“This is not just for young girls; we have ladies from 14 to 70 attending our workshops.”

Ms Keepence said there will be a charm school booth in the main street tomorrow and a charm school workshop on Sunday.

“At the workshop ladies will learn how to do their hair, make-up and nails; they will also learn how to walk in sky-high heels and the importance of the right underwear,” Ms Keepence said.

“It’s about helping the ladies to cultivate a glamorised look.”

Ms Keepence said there has been a recent return to stylised ’50s glamour in Australia, with women embracing a feminised high-fashion image.

“There has been resurgence to glamour. Many musical artists are leading by example and Australian fashion magazines are also beginning to embrace this trend.”

A 1950’s cake competition has also been arranged for the weekend and a number of colourful entries have already been created.

“We have had both men and women enter cakes for the competition as well as some mother and daughter teams; it should be a great event,” Ms Keepence said.

“On Sunday there will be a parade of 1950’s swimwear, where a bevy of beauties will model classic vintage swimwear.”
