The Washington Post reports on vintage clothes for weddings
The generation that grew up shopping for vintage clothes is getting married and looking for retro wedding dresses. So the good news is if you have your mom’s Priscilla of Boston silk gown boxed up somewhere.
“There is a market for vintage wedding dresses,” says Brides magazine fashion director. “Mixing old with new is big, it could be a dress or veil, or just vintage shoes or cocktail hat.”
1950s designs with tight waist and full skirt, and 1930s Hollywood- inspired charmeuse gowns. The hit TV series Mad Men has created a yen for 1960s formal gowns.
At Antiquedress.com, owner Deborah Burke specializes in high-end gowns, including ones on consignment. She splits the selling price of the gown with the consigner. Burke’s caution to would-be sellers: Condition is everything.
