There will be Vintage louis vuitton, prada and many more designers from all over the world.
Key things to look out for when vintage shopping
1. Quality of garment
Check that the piece has no tears, zippers still work and that the fabric is still in good condition. Also check key areas of the garment like under the arms for extra marks and stitching problems.
Vintage clothing can cost extra but key things to look at too make sure you arent being ripped off is if the garment is in perfect conditon, if you are buying a fur what kind of fur it is? rabbit is the cheapest fur you can buy, check if its real.
3. What era is it from?
check the label for the original garment tag, this will say alot about the garment- do your research. Know some labels from back in the day like Nicole, St Michaels from England. This can also influence the price of the garment.
Have fun with it, never take vintage shopping to seriously, it is meant to be exciting and it is great when you find that one piece of clothing that is so unique that you know no-one else will have, well not in this decade anyway.
David Jones recently show cased there Winter collections from all our favourite Aussie/ International designers.
However what was your favourite piece or pieces from the show? and can the average consumer afford them?
Realistically each new season I aim to buy one fabolously expensive piece, then work my wardrobe around that. Wether it be the ‘it’ handbag of the season or a dress that can carry me through even into summer.
This Autumn I am loving the Tuxedo the slick lines and Navy wool fabric/ colour really represents what this season is all about. Textures and colour.
