Who we are

About Us

Material Past aims to preserve and champion elements of vintage design for contemporary fashion labels. Our team comes from a fashion and retail background, we draw on our vast network of privately held vintage collections and archives and connect designers to a previously untapped resource of clothing. Our collective in-depth (borderline geeky) knowledge and direction helps streamline the inspiration and design process for our clients.
