As she launches her vintage inspired lingerie line in Harrods (it’s gorgeous, BTW) Dita Von Teese took time out of her schedule to talk about something she’s a bit of an expert on: vintage fashion…
Q: What’s the most precious item of vintage in your wardrobe?
A: I have a suit by Christian Dior haute couture from the New Look era. It’s three pieces in tweed and is the kind of thing you see in the museums. with the red serial number stamped on the inside. It’s the real thing made in Paris and silk lined. The blouse has garters – it’s really incredible. It was expensive but I found out later I’d scored. Today it’s worth as much as a Mercedes.
Q: Do you have someone who alters your things?
A: I have one great tailor who can do anything. She’s great. I would really recommend finding someone for yourself if you are serious about vintage because. For almost twenty -five years, I used to go to any old tailor and there are so many things that have been ruined by not being altered properly. The lady I now use is very conscientious about keeping the style right and making some allowance for when your size fluctuates, and you can let it back out.
