The Vintage Fashion Guild's mission is to become the international voice of the vintage fashion industry and its leading authority.

Its objectives are to:

  • Protect the interests of vintage vendors and encourage good practice.
  • Elevate the standard of dependability among sellers to stimulate buyers' and collectors' confidence that items are accurately represented in terms of age, style, details and condition.
  • Raise awareness of vintage fashion and provide a forum to bring together buyers and sellers.
  • Establish a central educational resource available to both buyers and sellers.
  • Create a positive environment for and enhance the image of vintage clothing.
  • Encourage the conservation and wearing of vintage fashion to preserve the history, availability and survival of vintage clothing in future years.
  • Position vintage clothing as a viable, attractive and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional fashion.

All VFG members undertake to observe the following Code of Practice

1. The member, to the best of their ability, shall give the buyer as much reasonable information as possible about the goods, and this shall normally include such detail as:

  • The circa date of manufacture (or actual year if the item is date -marked) if known.
  • The fabric if known (e.g. silk, gabardine, etc.).
  • The designer or manufacturer, if known.
  • Any major repair or alterations, if known.
  • Whether the item is a reproduction, if known

2. The member shall not attempt to confuse or mislead the customer or falsely describe any of the goods he/she offers for sale or seeks to purchase.

3. Members accept responsibility for descriptions of items given to customers.

4. Any member who accepts advance payment or deposit (layaway) for goods shall clearly record in writing the terms of the transaction and by what date the full amount is to be paid. A copy of this record is to be supplied to the customer either by post, in an email or as an email attachment.

5. Members shall apply standards of fair dealing to all members of the public, fellow members and non-member buyers and dealers.

6. Members have no authority to act on behalf of or speak for the VFG, save insofar as expressly authorized by the Directors.

7. Members shall not state or imply that membership of the VFG is any guarantee of authenticity of any article offered for sale or that memberships entitles them to any special standing insofar as authentication of articles is concerned. Responsibility for all claims or statements as to authenticity lies solely with the member.
