|What does the word Vintage mean?
Of English origin, the word Vintage indicates an ageless and timeless article of clothing. It refers to a clothing of a past collection. In addition, when one speaks about Vintage clothing or accessories, one thinks of high-end brands such as Courrèges, YSL, Dior, Chanel... The term Vintage ended up indicating a set of appearances using a combination of old second-hand clothing and of new clothing, creating a fashion range from the mundane to the exceptional.

How to wash my Vintage clothing?
Up until the Sixties, the fabrics used were not made to be put into a washing machine, because washing machines only became popular around the mid-Sixties. It is thus preferable to wash old clothing by hand or by dry-cleaning. It also depends on the fabric: cotton can be easily washed, but for silks, satins, it is better to be careful and take them to the dry-cleaner.
Why is there currently such frenzy over the word Vintage?
Indeed, it is not fashion photography, not an expo, not a quality article when the word Vintage is not employed. It is supermodels such as Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss who largely opened the way to Vintage in the Nineties, while wearing Vintage clothing at events. But it isn't until 2001 that the phenomenon truly exploded, with the appearance of Julia Roberts attending the Oscars, wearing a 1992 vintage Valentino dress.
