For What Goes Around Comes Around, 2013 is going to be a very exciting year--full of amazing events, collaborations...and commemorations! In 2013, we're celebrating 20 years of collecting the finest vintage treasures from around the world, and it feels like we're just getting started!
As you can see, WGACA founders Gerard Maione and Seth Weisser haven't changed that much! Stay tuned with us all year long to hear about the surprises we have in store for our 20th Anniversary Year!
ZOOEY DESCHANEL / WGACA & GLAMOUR
Indie icon and vixen of vintage, Zooey Deschanel, is known for wisely mixing modern designer pieces with cheeky vintage dresses from the 50's and 60's. Her impeccable throwback style is applauded both on and off the red carpet, and hints of Zooey's own style can be seen in her breakthrough TV persona "Jess Day" on FOX's hit show "New Girl." We're proud to see her on the cover of Glamour's Februrary issue, and even prouder to see her in a pair of vintage boots from WGACA!
WGACA x BYRONESQUE
We laud Byronesque's innovative approach to high-end vintage shopping. Their website alone seduced us into letting go of amazing vintage Vivienne Westwood pieces from our own archive. "We know that the Byronesque audience will provide the perfect homes for these museum-quality pieces," says Seth Weisser. To learn more about this collaboration, check out our feature in the GrandLife Hotels' City Guide.
The coppeRivet collection, created by designer Brittan LeFils, is comprised of one-of-a-kind collectable pieces, focusing on extraordinary top hats, leather & denim. Emphasis is placed on the use of vintage materials with an eye toward exceptional artisanal quality and ethical production. All items under the coppeRivet label are handmade in Brooklyn, NY.
Did you always know you wanted to be a designer?
While I have always loved sewing, I actually trained my entire life for acting. I did years of theatre, vocal coaching and dance training, and was recruited to college for dramatic arts. While pursuing my theatre degree at UNC Chapel Hill, I fell in love with the costume design courses! That quickly transformed into a love of fashion design, so I transferred to FIT where I completed their AAS program and never looked back!
Thank you to the fashion industry for a great year in 2012! Take a look back with us in our Press Section.

We're proud to announce the arrival of Hawaiian surf brand M.Nii to our NY store (and coming soon to LA)! Founded in Mahaka, Hawaii, the birthplace of big wave surfing, M.Nii proudly originated surf trunks back in the 1950's. Their Spring collection of soft cotton t-shirts, sweaters and chinos are sporty, durable and bring a touch of the island to city life.
On January 22nd & 23rd WGACA will launch its Autumn / Winter 2013 Men's Ready-to-Wear line at the Capsule Show in New York. Then it's off to Dubai for a WGACA Vintage Chanel Trunk Show at Harvey Nichols on January 28th & 29th. See you there!
