Local shoppers are abuzz with the approaching fall Vintage Fashion Expo this weekend September 22-23 at the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco.

The Vintage Fashion Expo brings together dealers from around the country to offer an array of treasures from the early 1900s to the 1980s.

Vintage Vogue’s Barbara Grigg will be there displaying designer gowns perfect for upcoming holiday parties and events. Marta Koehne of Hot Couture Vintage Fashion has a wide selection of chic winter coats among other great finds.

Vintage-inspired is omnipresent on the runways and this season designers focussed on accessories:

  • Hats are favored by Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, and Giorgio Armani.
  • YSL looks include daytime gloves.
  • Miu Miu and Oscar de la Renta like structured handbags.
  • Chunky pendants and brooches are the big news of the season.
