For the last 71 years The Oroton name has been synonymous with luxury, quality and style in Australia. Creating everything from Sunglasses & lingerie to Jewellery and of course beautiful leather, mesh and crystal bags.
Some of these bags have been locked away since the 70’s! Some old favourites and one off samples too expensive to go into production at the time will be available. This means you could score yourself a genuine one of a kind vintage bag! The V-50 Clutch will also be on the list (made to celebrate Vogue’s 50th anniversary).
New items will be released weekly until Christmas and for Australian order shipping is free!
There will also be two “very special” items released where 100% of the sale proceeds will be donated to the charity of your choice if you buy one!
A little brand history on Oroton (well historical fashion is my thing!)
Oroton began as a sole trader business in 1936 and emerged as a public company in 1939 under the name of Boyd Lane & Co. Pty Ltd. By importing luxury fabrics and materials from Europe in the early days of Australia’s fashion scene Oroton distinguished themselves as a brand of class and elegance from the outset and has scrupulously kept to their ideals of quality and timeless classics; unaffected by trends.
Note: This blog post was not in any way paid for by the Oroton Group. I was contacted and informed of this shopping event and being a fan of the brand felt it worthwhile sharing with my readers. The images displayed are used with the permission of the Oroton Group. It is unfortunate that I don’t have any pictures of their leather bags but check out the link above to see their range.
For the Melbourne spring racing carnival I attended one event this year and that event was Oaks day.
I had a stunning one of a kind Anna Campbell dress that was created for Melbourne Spring Fashion week. However when I was getting ready that morning the straps (on the brand new dress) both broke. With no time for repairs I went to my back-up dress. A lovely Betty Page dress in Navy with a white collar, only to discover once I had the dress on that there was a bright red lipstick stain that the drycleaners had failed to remove!
I hit the panic button! with my hair and make-up done I had one 20 min's before the car arrived in which to find a suitable dress and accessories for a warm sunny day with very chilly winds. So here it is an old Kamikazi dress I dug out (it's kind of my emergency dress).
Not the glam ensemble I had in mind but passable!
Details: Dress - Kamakazi from about 5 years ago Belt - Alannah Hill (hooker in the Alley belt) Heels- Custom made Pashmina - Borrowed from a friend Necklace and Earrings - Joolz Bracelet - Vintage Headband - Anna Campbell clutch - unsure
Had a lovely day in the birdcage but the wind played havok with my hair!
