This is the first in a new series of articles about clothing for Swing dancing.
Finding authentic clothing from the 1940’s is not easy: it can take a lot of time and the pickin’s can be slim. Plus, clothes that old can be fragile.
So, I’ve asked local vintage fashion dress company, Loco Lindo, to talk about the vintage-inspired dresses they design and make for Swing dancers. This is not a paid article – I asked them to talk about their dresses as a public service to the Swing dance community, and because I’ve seen many dancers wearing their dresses! So, without further ado, here it is!
Find the Swing Dress of Your Dreams at Loco Lindo
Loco Lindo offers a variety of dress styles ideal for dancing the night away!
Our dresses are made of a machine-washable rayon, combining comfort, convenience, and beautiful movement. Rayon is a very sustainable fabric from natural sources that breathes so you stay cool on the dance floor.
We offer an extensive selection of unique vintage inspired prints, from cowgirls to polka dots, flowers to fruits. We design and manufacture all of our dresses right here in LA and have outfitted many dancers over the past 25 years.
Linda Marrone is our leader and designer behind it all, originally reaching into her own vintage collection to inspire the designs behind Loco Lindo. Most of our designs are based off of original vintage patterns, so when you slip on one of our dresses you’ll feel like you’ve gone straight back in time.
Whether you’re into the 1940’s or 1950’s, whether you’re spending a Friday night at the Lindy Loft or gearing up for a weekend at Camp Hollywood you can always count on Loco Lindo for the perfect look. Come visit our dance collection at http://shop.loco-lindo.com/TheLocoLetsDanceCuratedCollection!
