Dear friends, Paris '99 was featured in the Postcode 3000 column by Suzanne Carbone, a dear friend of ours. Due to my slowness regarding blogs I am simply copy/pasting from The Age website for your enjoyment.
Paris '99 a fashionable vintage
WE KNOW retailers are bleeding from online shopping but there's another way fashionistas are parting with their dollars. Yahav Ron (pictured) sells new and pre-loved designer fashion at Paris '99, an appointment-only salon tucked away in Elwood named after his first visit to Gay Paree in 1999. Aged 13, the trip was a bar mitzvah gift and inspired him to sketch clothes and study fashion design at RMIT. The entrepreneurial 26-year-old sources his clothes from well-heeled women in France, Belgium and Holland. A new pink Versace dress with Swarovski crystal halterneck is worth $12,000 but he's selling it for the ''accessible'' price of $1800. ''The salon is for women who share the passion for fashion,'' he said. Ron is speaking at Sunday's Fashion Exposed seminar at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, the workshop called ''Rethinking [Service] Design''. Service is something retailers are pondering, especially when Ron offers clients a flute of bubbly or cuppa from his balcony.
Paris '99 is Melbourne's newest and most exciting designer resale concept.
Established in 2010 by fashion personality Yahav Ron, Paris '99 offers a by appointment only salon style experience, without the heavy price tag (usually 80-90% off original retail).
With impeccable service in a personal and private setting, we source new and pre-loved items from the highest end of international designer fashion.
Labels include powerhouses Balenciaga, Lanvin, Chanel, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent, Alaia Gucci, Gianni Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Alberta Ferretti, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and Oscar De La Renta, as well as younger and more left of centre labels such as Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeuelemeester, A.F Vandevorst, Proenza Schouler, Barbara Tfank, Roland Mouret, Maurizio Pecoraro, Anne-Valerie Hash, Antonio Marras and Alessandro Dell'Acqua.
