"It's important to reclaim objects which already exist, and be inspired by them. I've been a regular customer at Manhattan Vintage Show for many years so this is really exciting for me!"

"My collection for Manhattan Vintage embodies that moment, in the late sixties, when politics, activism, music & the arts were reflected in the aesthetic of the fashion of the time. I'm currently inspired by the transition from Mod culture to the more psychedelic hippie and activist culture of the late 1960's. I feel our generation is currently going through a similar cultural shift, becoming more active in our communities & having our voices heard. These are political, playful, practical, positive clothes to wear to a protest! They have a rebellious spirit”

Men’s vintage clothing is a market that is often over-looked because of it’s hard-to-find nature. Not any more! On September 26th, the Gentlemen’s Vintage Show will be the greatest collective of men’s vintage fashion in the country. These collections are where the top fashion designers turn to for inspiration. Vendors will include Heller's Cafe, Strongarm C&S Co., Recursive Chic, Jae Jerrell Gents Vintage, Dated Vintage, Cherry Vintage, Untitled Clothing from Paris, France and many more. Take advantage of this opportunity. Although we cannot begin to name all the items and styles that will be available booth to booth, there will be some stand outs. Everything from rare vintage denim, work wear, military, tweeds, hats and leathers to beautifully tailored suits from the 1940’s.  Find collectable Hawaiian shirts and Rock-a-billy from the 1950’s, and wearable knits and designer from the 60’s and 70’s.

There will also be a special exhibition called 'Variation In Plaid & Scottish Clan Tartans'

Lilly Pulitzer, the Palm Beach princess of prints, is famous for her tropical and light hearted color combinations. While the initial attraction is the bold colors and blended prints, the touch and feel of her smooth fabrics and quality of cotton draws further attention. What cements the affair though is the comfort of fit and ease of her designs to wear.

An amazing collection of Lilly's fresh look will be on display in a special exhibit at the upcoming Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show in March.

We are very happy to announce a partnership with the New York City based charity organization Housing Works. With the hope of encouraging donations, we will be offering half-off regular admission price for anyone who brings an item of clothing, in relatively good condition, to the upcoming March show to donate. They are most in need of women's handbags, dresses and blouses, as well as men's wovens and shoes, so these items would be prefered. You will also be able to receive the discounted admission if you donate at any Housing Works store during the month of March and bring your dated tax-deductable donation receipt to the show. The donation discount will only be available for admission tickets purchased at the show.

Hopefully as everyone begins their spring cleaning and finds items they no longer wear, this oppurtunity will spark motivation to come by the show, donate your old and shop some vintage!
