Long before Macklemore rapped about popping tags at the thrift shop and wearing your grandpa’s clothes, vintage clothing was firmly established as a statement of individuality in the fashion world. The idea of wearing grandpa’s (and grandma’s) clothing as fashion and not for playing dress-up as children is a concept that dates back to about the 1950s. Over the decades, vintage clothing has transitioned from the counterculture/niche market to the pages of national fashion magazines, sold by major fashion labels, embraced by celebrities and of course, worn by Grammy-winning rap artists.
This presentation will trace the evolution of vintage from small boutiques to major retailers and online platforms and social media. It will also cover insider information on how the vintage market works, how to find good vintage deals, and how to care for your vintage items.
