Vintage is making a comeback to the World’s wardrobe. With John Galliano’s vintage DIOR collection making an appearance on Jennifer Aniston at the 2020 SAG Awards, vintage is definitely on the way back to the limelight
Many Celebrities opt for vintage designs on the red carpet such a Bella Hadid in a vintage red Roberto Cavalli red gown on the 2019 Cannes red carpet and Gwyneth Paltrow in a vintage Valentino monochrome dress with sheer details at the 2019 Emmys. They proved that new isn’t always best, that old designer collections still look fantastic on the red carpet.
Most recently, John Galliano created a SS20 collection for Maison Margiela, which consisted of up cycled vintage fabrics to show he’s taken note of the damages caused by the Fashion Industry, and that fashion designers love to use vintage designs as inspiration as well as vintage fabrics to create their garments.
Lynnette Peck, who is a vintage stylist and owner of Lovely’s Vintage Emporium, an online vintage fashion and homewares shop – handpicked by Lynnette herself. She gave her views to us about Galliano’s latest collection:
“I think that it is important that the fashion industry and someone as iconic as John sits up and takes notice of climate change and reuses fabrics. We cannot keep producing millions of items of new clothing every year that then ends up in landfill. Although of course it isn’t normally high-end designer pieces in landfill anyway!“
