All those who love gawking at impossibly beautiful, old clothes, take note: The Manhattan Vintage Show returns this weekend with their most popular event of the year, the womenswear showcase. Tomorrow and Saturday, Metropolitan Pavilion will host more than 100 vintage dealers around the world, who will be selling both affordable (from $60) and museum-quality (up to $15,000) garments from the 18th through the 20th centuries.
This event's special exhibit will focus on pioneering sportswear designer Bonnie Cashin, known for introducing the concept of layering to women's fashion. There'll also be a capsule collection curated by Tennessee Thomas with clothing from 60's and 70's protesters ($200 to $600).
Tickets are $20 at the door and $15 online. If you plan on stopping by, don't be shy about dressing the part—our photographer captured some awesome, unusual vintage street style looks from the January event.
