Vintage Vibe

"What I really love about them... is the fact that they contain someone's personal history...I find myself wondering about their lives.

1980's pink plated trouser featuring exposed black zip closures at front

I can never look at a garment... without thinking about the woman who owned it. 

1980s raspberry leather moto jacket featuring structured shoulders and a rounded collar

How old was she? Did she work? Was she married? Was she happy?... 

pastel floral shirtdress featuring bold shoulders and pink button closures at front

I look at these exquisite shoes, 

 1980s vented baby blue leather boots featuring a metallic-sheen finish

and I imagine the woman who owned them rising out of them or kissing someone...

glistening gold lame blazer! Pockets at front and button closure at front

I look at a little hat like this,

1980s Bisang Couture black satin dress featuring structured shoulders and peplum skirt

I lift up the veil, and I try to imagine the face beneath it... 

jumpsuit featuring split sleeves and an ultra-drapey pant with tapered leg

When you buy a piece of vintage clothing you're not just buying the fabric and thread 

 1980s semi-sheer black pants featuring a metallic silver dot print!

- you're buying a piece of someone's past."
