It seems like vintage has never been more trendy. Popular fashion shops are filled with clothes and shoes inspired by the past decades. Powder pink is one of the trendiest colors. Second-hand affairs with original pieces pop up constantly. Nostalgia is everywhere. In shabby chick furniture, colorful flowery patterns, velour on sofas and pillows. Photo filters we use everyday carry so much of the “old days” feeling. We like photography as we remember it from the Polaroid era or even earlier – from the beginning of the still picture history. We got seduced by the “old fashioned”, it’s part of our everyday life.
Passion and work
I created Vintage Harbour out of passion for vintage, but also as a result of practical work with female styling. I have been taking care of a retro vocal group , both a unit and individual singers. Finding clothes, manufacturers, browsing stores, fixing looks and taking care of the outfits both before and after the events was a part of the job.
More importantly, the styling has been included in the language used during live concerts and shows. The outfits were carrying a message, a special “hello” from the past, meant to reach the audiences in a very special way. The response was intense, enthusiastic, sometimes surprising. Vintage styling brought something special to life, it pleased the audiences and inspired many in the surrounding.
The Vintage Harbour platform is a space to explore the vintage phenomenon, where I want to gather different inputs.
