The Future of Vintage

with Bay Garnett

MEET BAY GARNETT

British stylist Bay Garnett is the “Queen of Thrift” herself: the first to include vintage pieces in luxury shoots, and more famously Kate Moss in the pages of British Vogue only wearing vintage. Esteemed stylist, editor, author and creative director, Bay started working in fashion in the late 90s when she edited Cheap Date, an anti-establishment magazine dedicated to thrift shopping. With over two decades worth of experience in the world of fashion, Bay joins us to talk about the future of vintage!

CHEAP DATE

Cheap Date is more than a hip, Brit-influenced Manhattan fanzine. It’s a collective of painfully fashionable bright young things, who celebrate the vast and varied potential of thrift as an antidote to the influence of commercial fashion The Guardian

Fake campaigns for Cheap Date by Bay Garnett:
Saint Laurent > Salvation Army
Prada > Poached
Burberry > Borrowed
