About Us


Established in 2004, VS Vintage Archive specialise in sourcing high-end vintage clothing and accessories for fashion houses (including Dior and Vivienne Westwood) seeking inspiration and reference from fashion history.

We source rare couture labels and pieces of historical value dating from 1890 to 1990, as well as lesser-known items that are desirable in their own right; locating pieces that hold their own individual qualities in fabric, construction, era and rarity.

In addition, a Contemporary Archive featuring many coveted designer labels and luxury brands has been added to the private collection.

Shop our considered edit of Vintage and Contemporary clothing, accessories, jewellery, homeware and one-off pieces from our in-house design label - Vanda Smith (featured in Vogue, Tatler & The Guardian).



Producing couture show pieces at jewellery brand Erickson Beamon in the mid 1990s for fashion houses (including John Galliano, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten, Ghost, and Copperwheat Blundell) inspired our move towards designing and sourcing one-off pieces. For more information or to purchase a one-off piece visit us in-store or via our 1stDibs store.

The Vintage and Contemporary collections will be updated in-store and via our 1stDibs store on a monthly and a seasonal basis. Please join our mailing list to receive regular updates of new arrivals, sale events, collaborations and new stockists. Alternatively contact us to discuss your individual sourcing requirements or specific commissions.

Our current stockists include the iconic luxury department store Liberty London, 1stDibs home to the most beautiful things on earth and Kerry Taylor Auctions the world's leading vintage fashion auction house.

We are also proud members of the prestigious Vintage Fashion Guild, the leading online label and fabric resource for vintage fashion.
