From Reformation’s new Los Angeles vintage boutique, to BPD Washhouse’s vintage pop-up in New York City, vintage is having a major moment in fashion and retail.
To meet demand, UBM Fashion at NY Women’s, Intermezzo Collections will debut its first-ever VINTAGE@Intermezzo consumer-facing fair within the show on Aug.6-8 at the Javits Center in New York City.
The shopping event is an expansion of the B2B VINTAGE@Intermezzo neighborhood at the NY Women’s May Show. The show will offer a curated selection of vintage dealers, including Morphew Concept, Norma Kamali, Dusty Rose Vintage, The Wayward Collection and Brent Edward Vintage, showcasing their apparel and accessories collections.
The entire fashion community will have access to the best in vintage design, style and period pieces, while consumers will be able to shop the fair with the purchase of a $20 admission ticket.
“Vintage brings provenance to one’s wardrobe and represents another time, when clothing and accessories were not mass produced but crafted by hand with a true love for the actual product itself. It speaks to the journey that has brought us to today and influences the way we see ourselves in the future,” said Peter Berta, Intermezzo show director.
Fashion icon Iris Apfel will join designer Norma Kamali and Lord & Taylor Vice President and Fashion Director Stephanie Solomon for a panel discussion on the benefits of vintage, and how retailers can use it to set their stores apart. The “Value of Vintage” panel will take place on Aug. 7. Other show highlights include a Spring ’18 trend presentation on Aug. 6 and a talk with Story Founder Rachel Shechtman on Aug. 8.
