Vintage shopping is somehow tricky. You must see further than the piece you are getting, and foremost, be ready for the unexpected. You might not find that dress for New Year's Eve you have been looking for but, instead, find an ah-wesome two piece suit that may be ready for you to wear on that event. You must be open-minded and be ready to do a pair of fixes and customizations for your new vintage garment to be ready. That's what we did with this lovely 70's-80's dress-coat from La Sra Henderson vintage shop, which has a detachable neck you can lace up and which we got all wrinkled, with two huge buttons which didn't match at all the coat style and with the linen stretching all the outer fabric. Not a mess at all: I've seen worse, but as I said, it was a piece full of opportunities.

So. Once we were at home, mum and I decided the best we could do to this vintage white coat was to put it on a hanger, iron it and lastly, get a pair of new buttons and replace them. I wish I had taken some pictures of it before the whole revamping process for you to see the differences between both. But it's OK, I think. You'll have to trust me and have a bit of faith when I'm telling you how the piece was originally. Just a bit of imagination, as everything related to fashion and design is.

Fashion is about imagination, about having vision and looking further than what you have in front of you. I always encourage people to see the many possibilities of a garment, the lots (billions, zillions) of possible combinations you can make by playing with different shapes, textures and colors. Vintage is for me the ultimate way of playing with fashion, and a way to express ourselves as legit as sculpture, painting, music or photography. By just changing a pair of buttons, I add a tiny bit of my personality to an unique piece. Others might design a garment from scratch, but for me, vintage is the key and as odd as it may sound, the future of fashion.
