Are you ready? Tomorrow is the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show! This is the number one vintage clothing event in the world and one of the top shopping events of the year, returns this month to the Metropolitan Pavilion.
For those who are new to Manhattan Vintage, the show brings together almost 100 of the best vintage dealers from the US and across the globe, offering everything from affordable vintage finds to museum quality vintage treasures. The show’s special exhibition will focus on Bonnie Cashin, considered one of America's most significant pioneers of designer sportswear. Cashin initiated the use of industrial hardware on clothing and accessories, most famously with the brass toggle she incorporated into her handbag designs for Coach. She is also credited with introducing the concept of layering to fashion and is remembered for the 'Cashin Look', comfortable country and travel clothes and accessories in wool jersey, knits, tweeds, canvas and leather. The exhibit will include items from Bonnie Cashin's archive, including pieces which have never been seen before, along with more widely recognized pieces.
