Fashion has changed since our great great grand parents time. Haute couture and custom tailored bespoke was all there was. Over the last 60 decades technology made the ready to wear a very accessible commodity. No one ever thought there would be a time where a huge surplus of clothing fashion would be available to the masses and sit in department stores waiting and hoping that a curious customer would come along and adopt the orphan clothing sitting on miles of racks.  Couture is making a comeback - but with internet shopping becoming more and more prevalent - people want immediate satisfaction even faster. The beauty of this surplus is a whole new wave of vintage wear which is as close to one of a kind limited edition is most shoppers will get that simply can't afford the custom dress of the past from houses like Dior, Chanel, Maggie Norris. For those who can't do a Met Gala Maggie Norris Couture piece - Vintage is the new limited edition...and its also ecofriendly to boot. - Ecomanta
