Podcast Episode 12: Chelsea G. Summers and the Birth of Vintage
Abby here and I am so excited to share with you all the latest episode of Fashion History with American Duchess. We're really excited about these next couple of episodes because they feature some of the amazing authors from the online media website Racked, a fashion & shopping page that is a part of Vox Media.
Racked has published some fantastic articles relating to fashion history - particularly within the realm of vintage clothing - and Lauren and I were able to sit down with some of the authors of our favorite pieces to pick their brains about their topics.
First up is Chelsea G. Summers, we sat down with her to discuss her article and research on the birth of vintage clothing and its growing trendiness during the 20th century. It was fascinating to listen to Chelsea's experience buying and wearing vintage, and how it has evolved and changed over the years - even to what some of us consider vintage (or not...)
So if you're a fan of vintage clothing this is definitely up your alley!
