Born out of love for an era gone by, The Local Vintage was founded in 2018 by Sujala Newar as an alternative to fast fashion. All the pieces are hand-picked and curated by her while keeping in mind timelessness and femininity as key elements when curating them. Having worked as a stylist for six years and cultivating an eye for fashion trends with magazines like Elle, The Juice magazine and Femina, she made the switch to the circular fashion movement by promoting the sustainability of vintage clothing.
TLV was established with an aim to change the notion of vintage shopping as only a western concept and eliminate the stigma attached to wearing second-hand clothes by curating one of a kind vintage pieces picked from second-hand shops in the north-eastern regions of India, hence, The 'Local' Vintage. Our curation spans across the '60s to the '90s—with a majority of the pieces from the '80s and '90s and a focus on styling them in a modern way.
We hope you find yourself some vintage treasures at our little shop. :) For any queries, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us @shopthelocalvinatge on Instagram.
