All Eyes On...New York Vintage

The room upstairs is full of incredible pieces from a variety of decades and designers.  These pieces are often used in fashion editorials in publications such as Vogue, Elle and Harper's Bazaar to name a few and by stylists.

I first encountered New York Vintage while interning in the windows department at Bergdorf Goodman.  There were multiple occasions that pieces were selected from the store to be featured in the windows.  I was that intern that asked a lot of questions and I would have conversations with the mannequin stylist about the pieces he had selected for the windows and the background on them.  It wasn't long before I began to drop by the store and look at the amazing pieces and thus began my love affair.  The store is owned by Shannon Hoey and houses an incredibly curated collection.  My favorite part of New York Vintage is the second floor which is used by the fashion industry and houses pieces from Chanel, Balenciaga and Christian Dior to name a few.  Chances are you've seen pieces from New York Vintage on the pages of magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire and Elle among many other publications.  Next time you are in NYC, make sure to visit New York Vintage...it is truly an amazing experience!
