About Black Cat Vintage

Black Cat Vintage was begun in 2005 to preserve the disappearing art of dressing beautifully. Representing over a century of fashion history, the 3000-piece collection includes the work of legendary artists and nameless designers alike, with each piece chosen as an exceptional reflection of its time and carefully restored to its glorious original condition. After over 25 years of collecting, our award-winning archive has been featured in museum exhibits, publications and performances worldwide. We sincerely look forward to sharing it with you as well.
