Seasoned collectors, interior stylists and history buffs will converge at Sydney's largest fair showcasing an exclusive range of antiques, jewellery, arts and some of the country's most significant and rare objects. The Sydney Fair will have something to suit every style when it returns with 60 exhibitors and over 5,000 unique and treasured objects, in its new home at Royal Randwick Racecourse, Thursday 30 May – Sunday 2 June.
Over four days, Australia's best 20th century, antique, Art Deco and vintage dealers will transform the Randwick Racecourse's Kensington Room into a collector's mecca of the most unique and covetable items available in Australia.
In addition to exquisite jewellery, vintage fashion, lighting and decorative arts, the avid interiors enthusiast can find iconic furniture spanning the restrained elegance of the Georgian era, to the crisp and clean lines of the mid-20th century.
The Sydney Fair will showcase some of the most significant and rare treasures across furniture, jewellery, luxury goods, fine art, prints and collectables with a price for every budget.
Antique Art Design's fine jewellery expert Christopher Becker will offer a range of vintage Scandinavian and revered George Jensen jewellery, available for purchase. One of Becker's most notable pieces is a colonial era snuff box, produced in 1829 and the earlier of only two known to exist. A rare example of early colonial Australian fine craftsmanship, the snuff box is indicative of the calibre of wares on show at the Fair.
Actor and collector Jermel Nakia, better known for his role as young William on hit TV series This Is Us, will add a splash of Hollywood glamour with his meticulously curated collection of iconic movie costumes. For fashion enthusiasts, eight vintage fashion and couture dealers will represent the world's most high-end brands, including; Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Ferragamo, Dolce & Gabbana and more.
The History of the Handbag exhibition debuts this year as a retrospective of iconic handbags from the last 100 years, from the ornately decorated flapper bags of the 1920s through to today's most highly sought designer bags. Attendees will have the opportunity to get up close with designs from some of the most revered fashion houses and the rich history behind them. On Saturday and Sunday, the exhibition will go mobile as models venture across the venue accessorised with the statement bags, while dressed in garments from corresponding eras.
