Fashion fans will be able to access an epicenter of vintage shopping from a variety of top brands in fashion.
The selection of vintage dealers will be showcasing their one-of-a-kind apparel and accessories collections for the entire fashion community to have access to the best in vintage design, style, and period pieces. Each vintage dealer will be showcasing a unique facet of the industry with product available for wholesale and retail.
The product will range from luxury vintage designer, including Missoni and Versace, gowns and furs, to rare Victorian and Asian pieces such as Issey Miyake, alongside accessible active and sportswear, denim, T-shirts, and personal pieces from Norma Kamali‘s closet from as early as the turn of the century.
Intermezzo Collections first debuted its B2B VINTAGE (at) Intermezzo neighborhood at the NY Women’s May Show with returning curator and industry expert, Bridgette Morphew of Morphew Concept. Coming off of the success of this show, matched with the consumer demand for authenticity in their purchases, opening up the show to the public was the evident next step.
“Vintage brings provenance to one’s wardrobe and represents another time, when clothing and accessories were not mass produced but crafted by hand with a true love for the actual product itself. It speaks to the journey that has brought us to today and influences the way we see ourselves in the future,” said Peter Berta, Show Director.
Fashion icon and longtime fan of the Intermezzo Collection show, Iris Apfel, will be joining the esteemed designer Norma Kamali as well as Stephanie Solomon, the Vice President and Fashion Director at Lord & Taylor for a panel discussion moderated by Lauren Parker, Editor in Chief of Accessories Magazine on the benefits of vintage, and how retailers can use it to set their stores apart. The ‘Value of Vintage’ panel will be hosted on the Monday of the show at 2 p.m. in the Crystal Palace.
The fair will also include a Spring/Summer 2018 Trend Presentation on Sunday, August 6 at 2 p. m. and gives a detailed look at what’s driving the five biggest trends for the SS18 with a focus on accessories.
On Tuesday, at 10 a.m. there will be a Q&A with Rachel Shechtman, founder of themed retailer STORY. Called “The Compelling Curation: The Art of Storytelling,” Shechtman will talk about creating a brick-and-mortar experience that feels like a live webpage with its ever-changing themes, products and point of view.
