Wearing vintage

"The search for and wearing of vintage is about satisfying personal desires, needs, motivations. For these women being hooked on vintage, though first motivated by economics or personal histories, evolved into recognition and a revaluing of self. [...] it is about constructing images with their new vintage discoveries from different historical, cultural, and economic contexts. These women acknowledged that wearing vintage is a complex and creative process that involves making authentic judgements and being authentic."

Marilyn DeLong, Barbara Heinemann and Kathryn Reiley, Hooked on Vintage! in Fashion Theory, Vol.9, Issue 1, Berg Publishers 2005, p.39
