VA at the V&A!

Vintage Academe spent the morning at the V&A, presenting our archive, to an enthusiastic audience of students and collectors, enrolled on the "Vintage to Vogue" fashion history course.
We were delighted that we could share our collection, and listen to what Clare Rose,
fashion history lecturer at the V&A, had to say about the history of the pieces. An Issey Miyake ribbon dress proved popular, and the exquisite cut of an eighties Thierry Mugler, drew an admiring crowd.

Clare Rose said, "It's great to have a vintage brand like Vintage Academe, who cleverly brings vintage fashion into today's fashion world. They have a strong collection, and it has been chosen with a good eye."
