This past weekend’s Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show, held at the Metropolitan Pavilion, was decidedly scheduled at a rather strange time (right after the Thanksgiving holiday). And while I did not find it to be the most exciting vintage show I can remember, camera crews from Channel 2 were there, as was reporter Christie Ferrer, and attendance was good (not great).
It was also a great opportunity to pick up some cold weather accessories- which we all need right now- and buy into some of the season’s hottest trends. And no discussion of winter trends would be complete without mentioning the word- shearling. Standouts included the shearling coat at Just Say When, the shearling 60’s hat and bag at La Vie En Rose, and a faux shearling duffle coat (that mixed two hot trends in one) that was nabbed for well under $200 at Angela’s Vintage Boutique by Mary McFadden, who was there making the rounds.
By the way, the next show is scheduled for Friday, January 31st and Saturday, February 1st 2003….mark your calendar
