The eight-year-old 1stdibs.com is adding vintage couture and designer clothes to its existing selection of some of the best antiques from major dealers in the U.S. and abroad.
The site expanded its repertory last year when it added estate and fine jewelry, and today broadens further with the introduction of vintage clothes. “Our roots were antiques and 20th century furniture because that is something I have a real passion for personally,” said Michael Bruno, founder and president of 1stdibs.com. “As the business began to develop, I realized that I really liked working with individual, entrepreneurial customers…usually the type of person that has a higher level of sensitivity towards things and appreciates design and can benefit from a business like ours.”
