    Hello all!

    My name is Henry and I've just (edited by admin) registered with the Vintage Fashion Guild.

    I'm a Costume Designer, based in London. I'm also a researcher specialising in the work of designer Hubert de Givenchy, whose work I have loved since the age of ten. I've been lucky enough to gather a small collection of his work, including pieces worn by his muse Audrey Hepburn. I've worked in the Givenchy Archives in France and even offer a little niche service of research - so if anyone needs help identifying dating a Givenchy piece don't hesitate to get in touch!

    I've always loved vintage clothing and have such an appreciation for all those in the community.
    So glad to be a part of this forum - thank you to all the wonderful administrators!

    Hi there! I hope I'm using this right. My name is Eleanor and I am recently retired and have been dabbling in everything vintage. My latest being vintage clothing. I find the past fashions give me "past feelings" and I am now hooked. Hoping to learn interesting things here!

    Hi! I collect vintage silk scarves. They're beautiful little pieces of art. I tell my husband I'll list them soon on poshmark or Etsy... Someday! I'm happy to have found this site. There so much unique and cool vintage out there and I look forward to learning more.

    Welcome, Laura! I hope we can help you! And I agree about scarves being "beautiful little pieces of art".

    Hi my name is dolly and live in the uk, a while ago I was left some beautiful vintage clothes from my aunt who let me play in some of her clothes and jewellery as a child and it has set me on a bit of a journey ( and obsession ) to learn as much as I can about vintage fashion, especially about dating the pieces and information on shapes and textiles , so happy to have found this site
