Everything Old is New Again- or, the Power of Vintage Fashion

“Dresses that are truly beautiful are never unfashionable” – Elsa Schiaparelli

Lately I’ve been reading a biography of the iconic fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, who headed the Maison Schiaparelli from the 1920′s to just after WWII. Although her House in Paris closed, clothing, jewelry, hats and other accessories were available in department stores through licensing agreements with other designers. So now, these items can be found on Etsy and eBay, and sometimes by lucky chance in a local secondhand or thrift store. Just look for the name.

Happily, a new era for Maison Schiaparelli has begun. In 2012, Maison Schiaparelli was reopened and is designing exclusive couture for the modern woman. Check out the spring collection from Vogue:
