Founder of the ultimate vintage boutique, William Vintage, there must be very little that William Banks-Blaney doesn’t know about twentieth century fashion history.
Christened “The Vintage King’ by British Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and The New York Times, William travels the globe for the ultimate in vintage and hand-picks every single William Vintage piece.
Now an highly respected figure within fashion, William is the global Style Ambassador to American Express and Contributing Editor of Centurion magazine. William has appeared regularly on television within the U.S.A. and the U.K. and has spoken at the Vogue Festival, the Victoria and Albert museum, the London Fashion and Textile Museum and a host of other locations.
If you’ve ever wanted to pick the brains of someone this knowledgeable, you’re in luck! A series of short videos, made by William in collaboration with London College of Fashion, offers an insight into the careers of seven key designers through the lens of one rather special outfit. They’re so good that I couldn’t resist sharing them all with you!
