Celebrity Vintage Spot

For a bit it seems the celebrity market had gone off vintage but lately vintage is popping up fast and furious again. My own personal theory is that it is because the summer fashion selection is just not that spectacular and the pieces that are/where spectacular have been shown in every major and minor magazine and tabloid, that they are now the equivalent of what was your favorite song until it got so over played on every radio station that you cringe when you hear it. And when that happens there is only one way to guarantee that you are the only fab girl to be wearing a frock - head straight for a glam one-of-a-kind vintage selection!

Mary-Kate Olsen rocks that theory in a floor-length vintage Holly Harp.

Who is Holly Harp you ask?

Check out what the Vintage Fashion Guild's (www.vintagefashionguild.net)
on-line label resource has to say:

(American, 1939 - 1995) - After opening a boutique in Los Angeles in 1968 and having her collection showcased at Henri Bendel in New York in 1972, Holly Harp (Park) began manufacturing her designs under her own label in 1973. Taking her inspiration from the vintage garments she collected, she is best known for her "rich hippie" looks - romantic layered and draped designs in ethereal hand-painted georgettes and chiffons.

Twice-nominated for the Coty Award, she also created costumes for the movies Cabaret, Sleeper and The Turning Point. Holly Harp was the subject of a retrospective at Decades Gallery in 1992 and her work was included in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's 'Goddess' exhibit in 2003. Holly Harp's career spanned from the late 60's to the early '90's and her designs are highly collectable, prized for their timeless, romantic appeal.
