So why vintage clothing?

Welcome to Vintage Fixation, a site dedicated to bringing you a wide variety of authentic vintage clothing and accessories from the 40’s through to the 60’s.

Vintage Fixation is the lifelong dream of Patricia, a vintage clothing aficionado, who grew up on a healthy diet of movies from the golden years of Hollywood, watching the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Lana Turner and Rita Hayworth.

You never forget your first

Patricia’s first vintage purchase was in 1985 at age 21 for her boyfriend’s 21st birthday party.

She had always drifted towards the 50’s look and thanks to the popularity of 40’s and 50’s fashion in the 1980’s there were lots of options available from vintage inspired pieces. She was also in the middle of completing a qualification in Film & Television Make up Artistry and loved the classic screen looks of the 50’s. So it was easy for her to begin to develop her personal sense of style.

Finding something special for a big event while working to a student’s budget is never the easiest task to complete so Patricia began hunting through the local second hand stores. Before long she noticed a scrunched up clump of fabric that had a unusual texture. Patricia recalls that it felt like a shower curtain. She pulled it from the rack and lo and behold, it was a gorgeous original 1950’s swing dress!

That dress cemented Patricia’s love of vintage fashion. It was the first thing she showed me when I first went to her house in 2010, 25 years after she first purchased it. It is still one of her favourite pieces and something she will never part with.
