Vintage Janice Wainwright on amazon

Vintage clothing is a generic term for brand new or second hand garments from a previous era. The phrase is as well used in reference to a store, e.g. “vintage clothing store.” It can also be used as an adjective: “This dress is vintage.”

The saying vintage is copied from its use within wine terminology, as a more elegant-seeming euphemism for “old” clothes.

Definition
In many instances, clothing which had been produced prior to the 1920s is called antique clothing and clothing out of the 1920s to 1980s is regarded as vintage. Retro, short for retrospective, usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous era. Clothing produced recently is normally called modern or contemporary fashion. Opinions vary on these definitions.

Most vintage clothing might be previously worn, but a small percentage of pieces haven’t. These are often old warehouse stock, these are even more valuable than those which have been worn, especially if they’ve their original tags.

Purpose
Although there always has been some interest in old and/or second hand clothing, the awareness, demand and acceptance of this has increased greatly since the early 1990s.

This escalating interest arrives to some extent to increased visibility, as vintage clothing was significantly more worn by top models and celebrities, e.g. Julia Roberts, Renee Zelwegger, Chloe Sevigny, Tatiana Sorokko, Kate Moss, and Dita von Teese.

There has also been a growing interest in environmental sustainability in terms of reusing,
Vintage Janice Wainwright recycling and repairing as opposed to throwing things away. An upsurge of traditionally based sub-cultural groups like rockabilly, swing dancing and mods has also played a significant part in the rise in interest in vintage clothes.

Some other reasons that many people are drawn to vintage clothing include:

Unique or almost unique: most items were custom made, and others were produced in small quantities only.
High quality: these were made to be worn for many years and passed on to members of the family, so they were crafted from robust materials, well cut and well made, with generous seam allowances and hems which permit for modifications and custom fit.
Fine materials: most of the uncommon older material sorts are not manufactured, or can be way too costly.
Good value: garments generally sell for a cost far below very much the same new modern apparel.
History: an admiration of the past, the roles of
Vintage Janice Wainwright previous generations along with the knowledge of well known manufacturers.
Detailing: hand finishing, unusual buttons, hand embroidery, handmade lace, crochet, applique, beading and also other methods.
Style: vintage clothing has traditionally been the favourite of imaginative people because it has an enormously wide variety of inspiring styles.
Investment: quite a few people buy to accumulate as opposed to to wear, and increasingly, high-quality vintage clothing especially items by well-known designers are wanted by collectors.
Low Carbon Footprint: many people buy vintage clothes since it is perceived as less demanding of world resources.
Union made: many vintage clothes carry a union label, thus avoiding labor practices in under developed countries which can be considered as abusive.

Sometimes, periodic fashion design turns to history for inspiration, and apparel closely similar to genuine vintage (retro or antique) clothing are manufactured. An example of this is the simple slip dresses that emerged during the early 1990s and were based on underwear from the 1930s. These styles are generally termed as “vintage inspired” or “vintage reproductions” depending on the faithfulness to the historical design, and serve as a convenient alternative to those who admire an old style but prefer a modern interpretation – another advantage is that, unlike the original garments, they’re usually for sale in a choice of sizes and maybe, shades and/or fabrics.

Acquire
Popular places to buy vintage clothing include charity-run pre-owned clothing shops, garage sales, car boot sales, flea markets, antique markets, estate sales, auctions, vintage clothing shops and vintage fashion, textile or collectables fairs. Among the first regular fairs that was set up specically to appeal to today’s demand for vintage clothing is Frock Me!. This event occurs regularly throughout every season in Chelsea, London along with Brighton. Vintage clothing is often obtained from older friends and relatives, because many people store their old clothing for a long time.

The advent of the internet is really a boom for the vintage clothing fancier, while it has been for a lot of collectors. It’s increased the supply of specific and hard-to-get items and opened up potential markets for suppliers around the world. Popular places to acquire garments include online auctions (e.g. eBay), online vintage clothing shops and specialist forums. A vintage-lover may possibly also turn to a custom dressmaker, which will use sewing patterns and/or fabrics from a bygone era to recreate a historically accurate look.
