If Vintage Fashion Labels Could Speak

If you are a lover of vintage clothing, seller or collector, then I am sure you have ran across the Vintage Fashion Guild's Label Resource. It is packed full of thousands of labels to reference your vintage clothing, along with bios of designers.

Lovingly tended by Lizzie of and with the assistance of Tiffany, pinky-a-gogo, this resource which began in about 2002 with contributions from vintage enthusiasts world-wide, has grown in size and recognition.

A plus for Lizzie in this administrative undertaking is many times being contacted by family members of late designers and companies. She was fortunate enough this week to be contacted by Robert Colman, son of Alex Colman, the California based fashion label, and to have Mr. Colman answer some interesting questions about this company. See Lizzie's interview with him at her Vintage Travel Journal. has had several Alex Colman labeled clothing items and now has a wild print 70s vintage palazzo pants/skirt now on our website...

Be sure to read the interview and check out Alex Colman labeled items on sale now by many of our VFG trade members.

(Side note: As president of the Vintage Fashion Guild for 2008, it is always nice to "toot the horn" about some of our most dedicated volunteers and Lizzie and Tiffany are some of the best!)

Just wanted to say thank you for the link to VFG--Labels. I love to collect and wear vintage shirt dresses and swingy 50's styles, this will be so helpful in building a collection that I love and pinpointing the circa of the pieces. Much <3, Debbie
