Vintage me up launches US made cute dress line in LA

Vintage Me Up, a young husband and wife team with tons of enthusiasm for vintage-inspired fashion, has launched with a line of seriously cute vintage style dresses that are inspired by the late 1940s and 1950s but also have a modern twist. What's more, they are socially responsible, are committed to manufacturing in the United States and are very down to earth.

From full circle skirts that “you can twirl to your heart's content,” to pencil wiggle dresses, the line of vintage-style dresses uniquely combines cuteness, elegance, and superior craftsmanship. As founder and designer Christina Weber likes to say, “Our dresses are at the same time very girly and very sophisticated.”

Vintage Me Up is big on versatility, and this is what has driven their designs. Easily dressed up or down, the styles are a woman's favorite wardrobe-builder and the perfect outfit for any occasion: a morning in the office, a visit to the mall, a picnic, a night out, a party, a wedding, you name it.

And since every detail matters, fabric couldn't be an exception. The pair loves organic and it shows on their line. Vintage Me Up dresses are made of 100% luxurious cotton which has been carefully selected for its thick weave and high thread count, which means the garments are wrinkle resistant and have a longer life span and high-end look.

Ever since inception of their brand, the owners of Vintage Me Up have been committed to manufacturing their dresses in the United States. “We take great pride in the fact that we have stuck to this vision and made all our dresses locally,” says Carl Weber. “We have a personal relationship with our sewing contractors and have personally met the sewers who bring our garments to life. It's about so much more than just the clothes.”

“Manufacturing locally means we are able to inspect the whole production process and ensure that every worker is treated with dignity. We were very careful when choosing which sewing contractors to work with and can proudly say that the sewers creating our garments earn well above minimum wage, have set working hours like any other employee, and work in rooms with plenty of light and under strict health and safety standards.

“Nothing like the horror sweatshop stories you see in documentaries. Our sewers love what they do, they take pride in what they create and this is reflected in the quality of their work and the care that goes into each garment. We are proud that we are able to support our local community by manufacturing locally.”

Vintage Me Up is fully licensed for garment production and holds a registration with the state of California's Department of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), which in simple words means that the state certifies that their manufacturing is done in fair, sweatshop-free conditions.

Christina says that: “I've always had a passion for vintage fashion and the golden era of couture of the mid 20th century. It had always fascinated me how the fashion of those times made every woman, regardless of her body type, look so feminine and beautiful. Those styles were so clever in accentuating all the right parts in a woman's body.
