At the Hyde Collection’s upcoming 50th Anniversary Luncheon, Laura’s Vintage clothing shop will stage a fashion show called Laura’s Vintage: Inspired Nostalgia. Owner Laura Traudt will display 30 vintage outfits from the 1950s to the 1970s, celebrating the history of the art museum founded by Charlotte and Louis Hyde.
After a lifetime of collecting women's vintage clothing, hats and jewelry, Traudt decided to open a vintage clothing business at the Glenwood Manor Antique Center in Queensbury. Nearly 10 years later, she relocated to her largest and most beautiful space yet, the shop she named Laura's Vintage at 19 Ridge Street in the heart of downtown Glens Falls. Laura's Vintage carries women's vintage garments and hats dating from the 1920s to the 1980s. A large inventory of vintage accessories--scarves, gloves, lingerie, purses and collectible costume jewelry--complement the large selection of gowns, dresses and separates at Laura's Vintage.
Traudt personally chooses each item in her collection and specializes in vintage restoration, so everything in her store is in mint condition.
Admire the outfits during the Hyde Collection’s 50th Anniversary Luncheon Tuesday, Aug. 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Saratoga National Golf Club, 458 Union Ave.
The menu includes a house salad, an entrée choice of herb-baked sole or vegetable mélange, and raspberry lemon mousse parfait with pound cake. The cost is $55 for Hyde Collection members and nonmembers. RSVP by Wednesday, July 31 via 792-1761, ext. 323, or www.hydecollection.org.
