    Hi, my name is Anne. I have been interested in fashion and design since I was a teenager. Most recently I was making period costumes for myself and my family when we became history re-enactors specializing in the middle ages. I have taken an interest in Viking era. Prior to that I was interested in fashion from the 40s. I have been looking for a pair of Summerette sandals in the floral pattern. It looks like a lot of people have these on their wish list. I look forward to meeting you and sharing our love of vintage fashion.

    Hello! I'm old and circling the drain. I'm vintage. I remember fashion books my mother had. I have a strong interest in design and history. I have learned pattern drafting and have sewn my own designs. I would like to start a thread about limited reproductions of classic designs. It's nostalgic for me to find this site because as a young adult I enjoyed visiting all the local vintage shops. However it seems that reproductions may be frowned upon in this venue. Vintage clothing to me seems to be rather self limiting as there is a definite shelf life for many of these fashions. I think a micro industry supplying limited reproductions would benefit the guild and the guild members. It's public relations and advertising. What say you?

    Hello
    My name is Angelique. I collect hats mostly from the 40s and 50s. I also collect other vintage accessories that interest me.
    I came across the vintage fashion guild while trying to do some research on Brooke Cadwallader after he moved to Mexico.

    Hi! I'm very excited to have stumbled across this site!

    My name is Pam, living in SD but from NY originally. I love vintage clothing, the adventure of thrifting, and above all, the sustainability aspect of creating longevity in clothing. I work in admissions for a major university and have been able to travel to Washington, Colorado, Texas & Oregon (among others) and ALWAYS try to find time to stop in different vintage and thrift stores while traveling.

    I have an affinity for 80's blouses, power-suits, and delicate 1940's and 1950's clothing. Some of my more prized vintage finds include an amazing late 70's black and gold jumpsuit, an 80s gold-lamé blazer, and a 1960's green and yellow mini (wrap) dress. I'd love to eventually transition into becoming a buyer for some vintage stores out in SD or maybe creating my own vintage business one day.

    Until then, excited to have found like-minded peeps on the interwebs!

    Hi, my name is Julie and only recently am discovering vintage fashion and all the wonderful styles. My mom is a lover of vintage fashion and has tried over the years to share her interest but I guess it’s only hit me now. :)

    Hello Forum members! I joined this forum more than a year ago.. and I"m only now doing my intro post.

    My name is Shelley and I have been collecting and wearing vintage for nearly 40 years. I remember buying a lovely pink crisp cotton men's shirt as my first "vintage" purchase. I have many beautiful clothes, bags, belts, scarves... and I also have collected vintage table and bed linens.

    I am going to look forward to advice from this group because I recently purchased a lot of ANTIQUE clothing and linens from a New Hampshire estate. I know nothing about these items... and I want o make sure they go to new owners that will love them.

    Wanted to share one fun thing that I recently purchased... a pattern to make slippers from felt.

    It is adorable - oh and did I mention I also like to buy (but don't really fully collect) vintage trims and notions.... especially if pompoms, tassles, and other lovely things.

    I live in Washington DC. I would love to meet up with some other forum members here if that is of interest. Thank you for reading and for being a place to go to meet like-minded fully co mmitted vintage dressers!

    Hi! I'm a teenager who recently fell down the vintage clothing rabbit hole. I specifically like clothing from the 1930's to the early 1950's. For a school project I'm going to put together an outfit from a certain time period (haven't decided!). I wish it could all be vintage, but I'm a broke teenager, so I'll just try to make everything look as historically accurate as possible. Thanks for being a place where I can bring my questions to!
