What is my vintage fashion worth?

Have you ever wondered how much your closet is worth? It could be more than you think. Clothing and accessories that are older than 10 and newer than 100 years old are considered vintage and the market for vintage fashion is steadily increasing in the past decades, especially with the rise of the online auction market. Arts and crafts museums all over the world have exhibitions dedicated to vintage fashion. Collectors worldwide are looking for pieces to go in their collection, such as vintage bags, hats, dresses, evening gowns, shoes, trousers, skirts, tops, shirts, lingerie and so on, made by brands such as Chanel, Hermés, Dior, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Valentino, Versace, Lanvin, Yves Saint Laurent and even less known seamstresses or milliners. These items can be from 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Recently we can see clothing even from early 2000s at auction. Items that are from an era that is considered “retro” and in fashion, or shortly “en vogue” observe a higher demand and sell for higher hammer prices. Condition is another key determiner of value. While some collectors want spotless items that they want to wear, whereas others do not mind some wear on the special objects they would like to exhibit. In order to determine an accurate market price, vintage fashion should be assessed by a specialized expert. Mearto puts you in contact with these experts from interested auction houses that will provide you a free and professional appraisal. If you want to find vintage fashion appraisal, all you have to do is to fill out our form and send us detailed photographs of the object including close-ups of condition problems.
