The Vintage Traveler will be off to New York City this week, but there will still be postings here. I might be a little slow responding, as I’ll be museum hopping and doing a bit of shopping and eating and well, whatever.
I’ll be tweeting my adventures, so if you want to know whether or not I get into trouble you can follow my tweets using the link in the side bar. Wish me luck in my quest for lots of fashion fun!
* Cone Denim in Greensboro, NC, has had to find and refurbish old looms to keep up with the demand for their selvage denim. Capacity was increased by 25%.
* Dior Couture is not your average sewing factory, and this short video shows why.
* Colin McDowell looks at the state of fashion criticism and does not like it.
* Saks Fifth Avenue will be sold to the Hudson’s Bay Company. Is luxury shopping endangered?
* Honestly, some people have NO clue about life.
* On my list for this week: Urban Fabric: Building New York’s Garment District.
* Here’s look at some vintage travel posters in the Charleston Museum collection.
