Nicole Richie Designs Capsule Collection for Macy’s with Seventies’ Flair

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Beloved bohemian Nicole Richie pleased her fans and fashion followers when she announced that she would be designing a line for Macy’s. The full line has hit and she did not disappoint! As expected, she remained true to her 1970′s aesthetic with her use of vibrant graphic prints and flowy fabrics. We were happy to see that she kept the entire spectrum of Macy’s customers in mind by including minimalist chic options reminiscent of the 1990′s. Somehow the sleek leather- sleeved tee is right at home alongside her printed chiffon maxi skirts.

The capsule collection is affordably priced, ranging from $49 to $149. Shop the 25-piece collection when it debuts September 12th!

NBC’s Fashion Star Spotlights The Way We Wore

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012


For decades The Way We Wore® vintage boutique and research library has been known within the international fashion industry as a leading source of design inspiration with the likes of Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and more regularly tapping its resources. Now, thanks to last night’s episode of NBC’s Fashion Star, this vintage Mecca has been introduced to a new generation of aspiring designers.

The episode takes place under the watchful eye of mentor Nicole Richie who is also a customer of the store.

“Inspiration can be found in so many ways,” explains Doris Raymond, vintage collector and proprietor of the 30-year old business. “I’ve seen designers create entire collections off of something as small as a fabric swatch. They’re like kids in a candy store when they come here and you never know what fabric pattern, piece of jewelry or item of clothing might speak to them. It’s an amazing process to watch.”

Ms. Raymond has been mentoring designers for years with her extensive collection of vintage couture, clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories from the 20th century. She is also a resource for collectors and museums worldwide who flock to her for her rare finds from early designers to ethnic costumes, American folk and more.
