Welcome to Past Perfect Vintage Clothing

  Welcome to Past Perfect Vintage. Since 1992, Past Perfect has offered selected Antique and Vintage Fashion to the public. The Past Perfect collection varies, but always features individually chosen fashions and accessories in day and evening wear. While select, the range is broad, from rare 18th century garments and Victorian gowns to modern designers. Past Perfect Vintage has shown examples from such designers as Halston, Norell, Givenchy, Emilio Pucci, James Galanos, Adrian, Adele Simpson, Bill Blass, Travilla, Howard Greer, Pauline Trigere, Balmain, Mainbocher and Christian Dior. A belief in the timeless appeal of fine design is the driving impulse behind Past Perfect Vintage Clothing.
