Frauenzimmer & Männersache in Vienna

Shop Frauenzimmer & Männersache in Vienna, Austria

Have you ever shopped in a shop owned by a burlesque dancer? I discovered such a shop in Vienna lately. The shop run by an Austrian dancer offers vintage dresses for ladies and gentlemen. They even offer vintage makeup. Not really using the ingredients of the old times but the colours. Well, who of you would love to celebrate this New Year’s Eve wearing a dress of the 20ties?

Shop Designqvist in Vienna

Shop Designqvist in Vienna, Austria
