It's that time of the year again! The biggest music extravaganza, The Eurovision Song Contest, is back and will take place from tomorrow, Tuesday 9th May, all the way up to Saturday night's televised grand final. We are all super excited about it here at the Tiger Milly Marketplace and to celebrate the run up to the event we've decided to put together a little world-fashion themed blog for you all, celebrating diversity, travel and fashion trends around the globe.
So, take a look below for a trip back in time including a few fabulous suggestions to achieve the look. You can shop the collection of 40's + vintage inspired & retro style accessories and clothing online now at the Tiger milly Marketplace.

It was in the French town of De Nimes that they first started producing the fabric that would change the fashion the world!
Go Hawaiian! Stemming from Chinese-born Ellery Chun in his Waikiki store, sewing together leftover pieces of Kimono, the Aloha Shirt soared to popularity in the 1950's and in turn boosted sales and tourism to Hawaii! Not to mention, creating an age-old fashion staple that we still simply adore.
