The VFG believes that informed selling and buying communities are good for the vintage-fashion industry as a whole, and all visitors to the website have access to the VFG resources. These are continually updated and constantly evolving, thanks to a dedicated volunteer staff.
Our blog features our picks of the freshest vintage items, member news and articles. We have also created a growing series of articles on some classic designers.
The Vintage Fashion Guild™ (VFG) is an international organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of vintage fashion.
The Vintage Fashion Guild™ (VFG) is an international community of people with expertise in vintage fashion. VFG members enjoy a wealth of resources, avenues for promoting their shops and specialties, and camaraderie with others who share a common interest and passion.
The Vintage Fashion Guild Forum is the place where VFG Trade Members and Registered Guests meet to discuss all things vintage fashion. Anyone can sign up as a guest. (If you are interested in becoming a Trade Member, please see Apply for Membership.)
The forums were started in 2004, two years after the VFG was founded. Since then, the most popular of all the forum headings has been Vintage Fashion – Ask Questions Get Answers. That is the place to get and give help with dating, cleaning, and identifying vintage fashion.
There, everything is asked, from What is this? (they were ladies cufflinks), to What shoes should I wear with my 1970s vintage wedding dress? (she liked the boot idea), to Is this a genuine 1950s Dior? (it was). You might not get an answer, but more often than not you will.
P.S. That Q & A forum is now up to 101,612 posts!
