Fashion trends are ever-changing. New trends and styles are constantly entering into the mainstream, and most of us are just struggling to keep up. Fashion is cyclical, and what was old will almost certainly become new again.
The term "vintage" is used to describe clothing between 20 and years old that is also clearly representative of the era in which it was produced. It could be said that to be called vintage the piece should strongly reflect styles and trends associated with that era. It is important to understand that the definition of vintage is fluid, so every decade brings forth new items that fit into this category.
As the owner of the online vintage clothing shop Rococo Vintage, I have been working closely with vintage and antique garments for quite some years now. Even before founding my own shop, I spent the bulk of my teen years scouring thrift and vintage stores for treasures, and then the end of my teen years as the assistant to a now very successful LA-based vintage clothing seller. I was raised in a Victorian house in New England, surrounded by antique furniture and skeleton keys and ancient table linens, and I suppose all that early exposure to, well, "a whole lot of old stuff," left an imprint on my heart and my mind.
The trend for "vintage" clothing as fashion exploded in the s. Prior to this, the trading and wearing of old clothing had different connotations. All levels of trade in old clothing were well supported by the increasing speed of fashion change from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and the growth in consumer availability of these trends.
