Sabine Getty's top ten

What is your all time favourite vintage discovery?

The day I found this couture black velvet gown with a very low cut open back only covered with an incredibly beautiful and sexy black lace from Alexander McQueen. I couldn’t believe such a work of art was sitting in a tiny vintage store in Paris.

What does the word vintage mean to you?

For me vintage means glamorous. When I think of vintage I very much look into the flamboyant 80’s era with the structure suits and exaggerated shoulder pads. I also love the 60’s and 70’s era which is all about fun, colour and glitz!

What does vintage clothing offer that contemporary cannot?

I think contemporary clothing today is very much about comfort and practicality. Athletic clothing, sports clothing are thriving at the moment and I think vintage offers that touch of glam that every woman needs.
