Some might say that it is best to keep a vintage piece at its original form, others found it better to rework the vintage piece a little bit to fit into the current fashion moment or make it ultra special and unique. RSVP is obviously the master in the latter mentioned. They do no regular rework (i.e. take up the hem, chop off the sleeves.. etc), what they do is at couture level - taking the best parts of different vintage pieces and put them back together in one piece... like a beaded amulet from a 1920 gown sewn onto a 1970 mesh fabric...or vintage lace from 1910's and 1920's attached to a 1930's gown... Here is a collection from RSVP specially designed for Shrimpton Couture. Gorgeous gorgeous pieces.
