Post By RelatedRelated Post

Fashion thrives in the liveliest of cities such as New York City and Los Angeles. By now you’ve noticed that vintage fashion is beginning to take over (not that we’re seeking a pat on the back) and is becoming a prominent feature of these fashion forward cities. Chicago, a city known for its annual food fest (The taste of Chicago), history and culture, is now on the verge of being known as a vintage fashion staple.

On Feb. 24 and 25, the all new Chicago Vintage Clothing & Jewelry Show kicked off in Edgewater. “The Chicago Vintage and Jewelry Show (CVCJ) is Chicago’s only all vintage fashion event. Featuring vintage clothing, vintage textiles and fabrics, vintage jewelry, accessories, shoes, handbags, designer vintage and so much more,” the Chicago Tribune reports.

Owner of Vintage Garage, Chicago, Melissa Sands says “I’ve put together a hand picked, diverse group of 50 vendors for the show. You’ll see everything from high end vintage Chanel to $15 sundresses.”

The only other venue to explore vintage fashion options in Chicago is the Randolph Street Market, which host a vintage expo, annually. Along with vintage fashion and accessories, the Randolph Street Market hosts a variety of antiques to explore.
