so…a few months ago…the email went like this..
Dear Recollection Vintage,
Your style is so unique and high-fashion. Please come sell at VAMP because we love you. We will have food and music too.
Then the reply went like this…
And we almost died….so excited to host Rosa and her fab-u vintage clothing.
PonyUp: Where does your passion for vintage come from?
Recollection: I’ve been collecting and wearing vintage for more than 20 years. I grew up with it and it has created my design aesthetic in my home and my every day life. I have a large collection that ranges from Designer Labels to 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and I love anything over the top.
PonyUp: We LOVE over the top too! How do you wear vintage?
Recollection: My design aesthetic is to take Vintage and wear it in a way that reflects current fashion as well as personality. I live for the times a client buys something from me & makes it their own- I have a hard time parting with certain pieces because I really care about how things are worn. That is a product of being a Stylist for Editorial fashion for many years. To put it simply, I love to dress gals up and I love Vintage!!!
PonyUp: How do you see your booth coming together for VAMP?
Recollection: As far as a vision for my booth, I have a background in retail merchandising for stores like J.Crew, Armani, Bill Hallman & Wish doing Windows & Merchandising for over 13 years, and there’s nothing I hate more than ugly presentation! My collection contains a crazy assortment of colors and patterns so I like to keep my displays minimal & clean. Again Modern meets Vintage…& definitely NO WIRE HANGERS!!
PonyUp: Outside of doing events like VAMP, where can people buy your awesome clothes?
Recollection: I have a booth at Highland Row Antiques. It’s in the basement…when you go down the stairs it’s in the room to the left, middle booth on the back wall. Come check it out! I also had a great write-up in Daily Candy.
PonyUp: Thanks Rosa and Recollection Vintage!
