Vintage as Tradition of Fashion

Hi Folks,

Back with the last post of the year on windowlane, its chilly outside and cozy inside and the weather is just perfect for Fashion đŸ˜‰

As the title must have suggested to you we are exploring the Vintage fashion today. Also why Vintage is a key milestone in fashion, why we keep keep referring to it and why it will always keep coming back to us…

So first, think of what is Vintage? Well Vintage is a very simple word with a very rich meaning to it. It denotes a product or a trend of high quality that has some character to it which makes it special or unique. It could be a print, a pattern, a dress material or a style that made its mark in its era and is still alive and accepted with open arms.
