I think it's a brilliant idea to have a night
where classic film and vintage fashion
can be celebrated together.
Fashion and film go hand in hand,
one often being an inspiration for the other."

Vintage Screenings is the brainchild of The Gathering Goddess founder Wilma Mae Basta. “The concept is simple; We screen classic films in luxury locations hosted by some of our favourite modern-day style icons. It is a fun and elegant evening where we get to immerse ourselves in all things vintage.”

"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

− Audrey Hepburn

"I was asked to act when I couldn't act. I was asked to sing 'Funny Face' when I couldn't sing, and dance with Fred Astaire when I couldn't dance - and do all kinds of things I wasn't prepared for. Then I tried like mad to cope with it.

− Audrey Hepburn

"I have no desire to prove anything by dancing. I have never used it as an outlet or a means of expressing myself. I just dance. I just put my feet in the air and move them around.

− Fred Astaire
