Understanding black history // Amplifying black voices

My love of vintage is as much about history as it is about aesthetics. History gives us context and vintage allows us to interact with that history. It connects me to the stories, style and legacy of my ancestors. In the most recent video I team up with Nichelle Gainer, author of Vintage Black Glamour and Derek Lipscomb , educator and creator of thework.education to examine how we can brush up on the past and put in real work towards a better future

Thank you Dita Von Teese for amplifying black voices in a moment when the world needs to listen. ️

Vintage is my a passion not just because of the design and the cut of garments but the history sewn into the seams of every piece. Looking at vintage garments, especially American-made ones, I know every box pleat and bellows pocket is bound by the sound of the blues. Every antique hat, suit and sole of a shoe beats with the sound of my ancestors as they pounded fields and city pavement to progress further than their forebears did. Though but they never forgot where they came from.

It connects me to the stories, style and legacy of my ancestors who in the face of 400 years of enslavement created an artistic and social language that helped define America. Black people, through faith and boundless vision, capacity rebranded beauty, codified rhythm, and gave new voice to humanity,}
In the face of systemic racism, they created and recreated popular culture again and again …

Vintage gives me a portal to the people history doesn’t always write about, but who lived it all the same. To see humanity in history is critical, because in many ways it can help you see the humanity in those who live in the present.

ABOUT DANDY WELLINGTON
Dandy Wellington is a bandleader, entertainer, event producer, and creative consultant, born-and-raised in Harlem, New York. Influenced by the style and skill of classic entertainers of the past but with his feet planted in the present, it’s no surprise that this Tisch grad has made a name for himself across the globe. From producing stylish events all over New York to performances in St. Petersburg, London, and Sydney, Dandy solidifies himself as not only an impeccably dressed man-about-town, but a bonafide man-of-the-world.

Boasting an impressive and eclectic list of clients that includes the likes of Pomelatto, Bergdorf Goodman, RewardStyle, and the National Museum of African Art, Dandy puts his uniquely well-dressed stamp on everything from his events to his music. Whether he’s organizing a dinner party at Norwood Club or crooning with his jazz band at The Rainbow Room, the crowd is well-coiffed and the scenery is elegant.

Dandy’s signature panache and eye for detail has earned him features in The New York Times, Vogue Magazine, and various other outlets renowned for their taste and sophistication. Mr. Wellington epitomizes the undeniable cool of the Jazz Age, while also bringing a progressive perspective befitting of the ever-changing landscape of our modern lifestyle. His appreciation for the swinging big bands, elegant parties, and beautifully tailored clothing of the 1920’s/30’s, paired with his contemporary edge, make him a certifiable renaissance man and a true modern dandy.
