Description

Located in iconic Art Deco building, Mitchell House the Dames of Distinction are making a name for themselves as the go to girls for vintage styling. The Dames of Distinction are Margeaux, Jacinta and Hester.  This delightful space houses a beauty parlour where you can be pampered by Margeaux who specialises in vintage hairstyling, hair setting and make-up or have your nails decorated with some of Hester’s beautiful nail art.  If that wasn’t enough, Dames of Distinction stocks a collection of vintage and reproduction lingerie with resident lingerie expert Jacinta on hand to offer advice and fittings by appointment.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Dames of Distinction and the very lovely Jacinta was kind enough to answer a few questions for the vintage Melbourne readers.
