Vintage Fashion

STEPHANIE LAM

Before the mid-1960s, “used” or “secondhand” clothing was only for those who could not afford to purchase new clothes. However, fashion has since then changed, with certain vintage pieces costing thousands of dollars. The term “used” became “vintage,” with old pieces of clothing becoming more valuable with age. I was inspired to undertake this project by my grandmother – specifically, I was inspired by her numerous black and white photo albums filled with vintage pieces from the ‘50s and ‘80s, albums I still enjoy looking through. I really admire the air of elegance and timelessness this type of garment gives the wearer, as well as the intricate details in the clothing that one does not often find today.
