La Belle Vintage - Where vintage is always in style!

✂ Who is La Belle Vintage?

LA BELLE VINTAGE is a POC/Minority Women owned establishment. We come from a long line of haberdashers and dressmakers since the early 1900's. Fashion, design and shop-keeping runs through our veins. We believe that wearing vintage is a fashion statement and it will always be in style.

We sell vintage and are also costume designers. Our company has been privileged to design for plays on and off Broadway, theater production, box office hits and television.

We research every single item we sell extensively. You will usually find an original advertisement of the item for sale and the exact date it was made or sold.

Our items come from estate sales or museum deaccessioned auctions so we will sometimes have complete ensembles of what items were worn together. Occasionally, we will have photos of the original wearer of our items.
