The word 'vintage' means ‘of a certain time period’, and in the antiques business it has come to mean collectables or tradeable items too old to be contemporary but not old enough to be seen as true antiques. The word is fluid in two senses: 1) because it has broad application and 2) because it changes over time: what is now contemporary will eventually become vintage; what is now vintage will eventually be deemed antique.
Vintage fashion is the clothing of a previous era, worn at a later date. Strictly speaking it is the original clothing clothing inspired by another time, that is called just what it is: vintage-inspired clothing Interestingly, unlike other items, vintage clothing is not usually divided into antique and vintage categories in everyday usage, so a person who enjoys Victorian clothing, for example, would be described as wearing vintage or period dress, and not 'antique dress', even though the clothing is, in fact, technically antique.
