Muy Trendí: Tie-Dye ’90s to Now

In January 2018, Proenza Schouler presented an unexpected trend at their fall fashion show, which caught the attention of the entire industry: tie-dye.

The bold technique originated in the ’70s during the flower power age and came back around in the ’90s, just in time for me to permanently dye our white porcelain bathtub trying to DIY my very own tee.

It was a time before YouTube, kids. Imaginate. Pero, aqui te ayudo.

As a grown woman, I’m going more for “nostalgic chic” than “Rainbow Bright” and designers such as Loewe, Prada and Stella McCartney provided elevated inspo.

The fab thing about tie-dye is that no style is exactly the same. I chose a vintage tee with a subtle nude splash and repurposed denim dating back to the exact year of my birth by Thrift Wares.

Mucho 1982 #nuevayorka . Nathan @thriftwares told me these jeans are from the year I was born. (Do the math, don’t be rude ????) Besides the perfect #tiedye, this little detail made me love them even more. Shopping vintage offers you the opportunity to get personal, exercise your creativity, see something someone else stopped seeing – it’s reinvention ✨??? . This weekend my favorite designer vintage vendor @thriftwares will be at @acurrentaffair with 70+ others. Check it out! And read about how apart from supporting brands who uphold higher ethical standards, buying second-hand clothing is the biggest personal change that can be made for the environment @thereallatinx LINK IN BIO ?#acainbk

And thanks to social media ordered a one-of-a-kind denim jacket by Bronx designer, Ralfy Veras, who started making custom pieces for friends and family in the neighborhood and now can’t keep them in stock.

DM him for details. No te lo pierdas.
