For immediate release. Updated 3/4/19
Three local vintage brands have joined forces to operate a vintage clothing boutique in Lakewood Ohio. Vintage Fashion CLE opened on August 17th 2018 with the aim to take vintage shopping to a new level. Their shop offers a highly curated selection of affordable vintage finds in a modern boutique environment.
There is a growing movement towards wearing vintage clothing. It’s an affordable, eco-friendly way to express individuality and embrace new trends. There is a cool factor in having a unique vintage find. Street style bloggers incorporate vintage into their looks. Fashion designers find inspiration in vintage for their new collections. "Several designers, including Marc Jacobs, Cole Haan, Celine and Zimmermann have bought pieces from my Etsy shop", said Heather Sapanos, founder of Vintage Fashion CLE. Costume designers buy vintage as well, even if it’s not a period piece. “Sarah Jessica Parker has worn a couple of my vintage dresses on her HBO show Divorce.”
The finds can range from the 1900s-1990s but are heavier on 70s, 80s, and 90s because those styles are hot on the runways and in demand.
