    Hello! I will say that I know very little about anything related to fashion. I have been trying to help out my neighbor sell a few items. Ive come across a leather jacket. Ive come to believe its was made by designer Gianfranco Ferre(that was easy), and also that its rather old and in great condition as far as I can see. Main issue is, I dont see anything like it on the internet. It seems rather unique and much more aggressive then anything ive seen from this designer online new or old. So any information or help or opinions on it would be wonderful, i hope this is the place to do this.

    Looking forward to reading and learning. Most immediate problem; 1920/30s machine beading on a dress. Have to write on this and need information about techniques used in the 20/30s. Specific dress I'm using as example was made for BOURNE & HOLLINGSWORTH 85/90 years ago. Info on how/where and anything really .... Thanks

    I have been using this site as a resource for quite some time.
    I love the great workmanship, quality, and uniqueness that vintage clothing offers. They are absolute treasures and a piece of tangible history.
    I not only have a love of vintage clothing but also the research aspect of it as well. I am constantly scouring the web, discovering the history of items and the long lost history of different companies. I love the journey through time that it sends me on...
    I am glad to be here and look forward to interacting with others who share my passion.
    Thanks for having me. :hiya:

    Kind Regards,

    I have had a long love of thrifting for unique clothes, but have become more drawn to collecting and wearing vintage clothes. Learning how to best identify the proper time period for a outfit has been a challenge I truly enjoy. i mostly frequent some of the thrift stores in my area and nearby towns along with the occasional fleamarket or yard sale during the summer season.

    Hi Everyone, I have loved vintage clothing for years and have way too many (if that is possible) pieces. I have just recently set up an Etsy shop and am learning more each and every day. Looking forward to learning from everyone here!

    Hello Everyone!

    I'm a stay at home mom of two, started collecting vintage clothes for my daughter over the years, and started getting into vintage for myself, although I cannot fit in most vintage I still loved it sooooo very much. I hope to one day own a formal boutique with bridal and party frocks... a girl can dream! :) I have two little ones, five and two, and we are a military family, so we move a ton! I'm from NY and currently live in Washington state. I've found this website very helpful, thanks so much and look forward to "meeting" you all!

    Hello. I just stumbled upon this site while looking up information on furs (very informative). I have been selling vintage sewing patterns and books online for years and have recently started delving into the world of vintage fashion. I live in LA and the estate items available here are AMAZING! I also make regular trips to France to look for vintage fashion items and linens. I think that this site will be a great resource.
