En vogue in vintage

Published:Monday | March 7, 2016 | 3:00 AMRandy Bowman

With a constant and significant increase in the demand of vintage clothing over the last two years, unlike technology, newer isn't always better in the fashion industry.

But what exactly is vintage clothing? A vintage purist will tell you that anything within the past 15 years should be referred to as contemporary. I have to agree. And just because an item is old doesn't make it vintage. The items are much more than just old clothes. Quality and desirability are very important factors.

The quality of vintage clothing is simply unmatched by that of those being made today. Clothing back then was made to last. As a result, vintage is entirely unique, bursting with whimsical details that cannot be accurately reproduced - the prints, the pin tucks, the buttons making them timeless. No wonder women all over are investing in such pieces, with the added benefit of not walking into a room and seeing someone else in the same thing.

Every garment is a treasure, and Flair, in association with Fashionenira Clothing today, brings you up to speed with these classy and fabulous works of art.
