Harworth 1940s Weekend is an annual event in Haworth, West Yorkshire in England (that’s Bronte country). It’s held each year in springtime. Dates for the 2010 event have not been announced yet, but here are some photos from previous years, to show just how committed the town is to recreating the 1940s for this weekend.

Well, the 2nd Annual Seattle Vintage Fashion Runway Show and Lecture just happened on December 4th as part of the Killer Diller Weekend, and here are some snaps of the gorgeous vintage clothes, circa 1920-1950, that were on display. If you’re a swing dancer, you’ll recognize some familiar faces strutting their stuff on the runway, and some of you may also know the mastermind behind the event, Lorraine Oâ€™Neal. Photos are by Jared Luxenberg. Click on the photo to see it larger. Enjoy!
