Noora Al Thani, the amazing fashionista, stylist and photographer behind Fashion The Blog (FTB) did an exclusive piece on FTB about the Emirati vintage soon-to-be store everybody is talking about right now, The Vintage Closet (check it out here).
Everybody I know recommends The Vintage Closet as the best business for ordering both new and vintage designer bags, jewellery and accessories (and at reduced prices) in the entire GCC ... some of the pieces are so rare they are no longer sold in their respective stores!
The Emirati lady who started The Vintage Closet sources the pieces from around the world, picking up one-of-a-kind treasures from cities like Paris and London. Many of the vintage pieces she sells were previously owned by members of high society. The pieces are 100% authentic and some of them are still in their boxes.
Not only can you buy, but you can also sell your designer bags and other designer pieces (provided they are still in top shape of course) and make special requests for a particular piece which they will then try and find for you.
They have an excellent reputation for quality products, amazing customer service (99% customer satisfaction!) and free international shipping. Last month they even threw in free Chanel temporary tattoos and vintage Chanel and Valentino earrings ... what more can I say?!
For now ordering services are mainly online, but they are in the talks of opening their first store in Abu Dhabi in the nearby future and are participating in galleries and exhibitions in London and Dubai ... so keep your eyes out for them!
