New York, NY— The Manhattan Vintage Show, NYC’s premier vintage shopping event, returns this February 3rd & 4th, at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Launched in 1992, Manhattan Vintage has become the largest, and oldest, vintage apparel & accessory show in the country, and a shopping mecca for designers, costumers, and vintage fashion lovers alike.
For those in the know, Manhattan Vintage acts as more than just a vintage shopping experience. If you’re a lover of all things vintage, shopping the show is like visiting your favorite museum, except you actually get to touch and buy the art. It goes deeper though, the vendors at Manhattan Vintage are the best in the business. Offering up the best vendors in the business, these merchants are also historians, able to educate you on each piece and provide you with a shoppable history lesson.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, this seasons special exhibition will be entitled “Jean-Paul Gaultier: Lingerie Through the Ages,” and will be comprised of archived, lingerie inspired, vintage Gaultier pieces alongside the original vintage lingerie styles that inspired the designs.
“By now it’s legend that Gaultier found inspiration in his grandmother’s closet. He was particularly fascinated with her corsets and other under garments. This exhibit will be an opportunity for attendees to see these early vintage lingerie pieces alongside Gaultier’s groundbreaking designs. We’re very excited to share this experience with the public,” said Manhattan Vintage owner David Ornstein.
Dealers including Cherry Vintage, Daybreak Vintage, and James Veloria will be contributing pieces to the Gaultier exhibition, many of which will be exclusively available to shop at the show.
With 80+ vendors that span the decades, there’s a vintage dealer with a one-of-a-kind piece for everyone at Manhattan Vintage. NYC based vendor, Metropolis Vintage, recently acquired a substantial collection of vintage Bonnie Cashin designs that will bring lovers of layering and vintage Coach running. And then there are the ladies of Spark Pretty, who will be owning the vintage 90s market with several vintage Tony Alamo denim jackets, as well as all the 90’s prom dresses you could ever dream of.
The Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show will be open at the Metropolitan Pavilion on Friday, February 2nd (1pm to 8pm) and Saturday, February 3rd (11am-6pm).
