What do you do when the Martha Stewart staff invites you to be a part of the audience for an hour-long television segment on consignment and vintage fashion? Alison said yes, of course, and then collared three other women who happen to know ’80s couture vintage intimately, because they once wore a few of the couture originals, on fashion runways in Paris and New York.
While Martha’s show largely focused on the high-end finds of vintage aficionados (see it all here), including the amazing collection of Iris Apfel, there was a nod to the budget fashionista—a DIY segment on turning a skirt into a dress. But Hooti customers also know that vintage can be found at every budget level, and not just in vintage boutiques. Happy hunting this fall, whether you are on Flatbush Avenue, a street in Soho, or going no further than your local Goodwill!
