Shannon Hoey, Owner of Premiere Vintage Couture Boutiquet, Curates Exclusive Collection

New York, N.Y. (January 26, 2012) - VandM, the leading online source for unique vintage furniture, antiques, art, photography, jewelry, fashion and design from around the world, is on-trend with the launch of its sale of Art Deco 1920’s designer accessories from New York Vintage, the premiere go-to vintage designer boutique for celebrities, curators, designers, couturiers and trendsetters. 

Vintage accessories have never been hotter.  Whether it’s Lady Gaga swathed in silk and jewels on the cover of her new album or First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover of Essence magazine, VandM is on-trend with the launch that New York Vintage founder and co-owner Shannon Hoey personally curated.

“The cast of Boardwalk Empire, Sex and the City and the upcoming Great Gatsby are outfitted by them, and such red carpet darlings as Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen strut their vintage style for the cameras,” observes Adam Smith, CEO of VandM.  “Now our clients can benefit from the amazing selection of Art Deco-era couture and accessories New York Vintage has to offer.”

Items that Ms. Hoey has chosen exclusively for the Art Deco sale include: An ornate Egyptian revival necklace with large amethyst pendant; a 1920s bakelite demi carryall in silver and gold with pave stones; and an Art Deco cobalt glass double-strand necklace.

Shannon Hoey, who founded New York Vintage in 2000 with her husband Jon Schneck, has a fine arts background. She presides over a vast collection of couture clothing and accessories that she sources from such diverse places as Brimfield and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.   

Shannon has worked closely with many fashion movers and shakers. Linda Fargo, Bergdorf Goodman senior vice president and ultimate fashion doyenne comments:   “I’m a big fan of Shannon Hoey’s eye at New York Vintage.  She’s my go-to gal for an event that I’m looking to feel unique and creatively dressed.”
