The spectacular Tuesday Vintage is undeniably the fastest growing online fashion platform, where beloved second-hand clothes and accessories are scouted and re-worked by the fashionista Rachel March. Established in 2012, stylist and founder Rachel March exhibits her unfathomable creativity, selling unique vintage pieces from all decades, which have adolescents beaming with excitement.
Tuesday Vintage is quintessential of the ever-growing trend of re-birthing fashion of the past, with its flared paisley pants, long hippy skirts, denim playsuits, shoulder-padded jackets, and aztec halter-necks attracting the eyes of all aspiring fashion queens.
Tuesday Vintage has evolved in the creative realm, with Rachel embarking on various brand collaborations, styling, full directed shoots, lookbooks and design. Rachel’s inner and utter adoration of all things vintage, in conjunction with her relationship with an array of designers, style icons, labels, photographers, bloggers and PR companies, ensures that Tuesday Vintage will provide only eccentric statement items.
The never-dying Levi jeans sold from Tuesday Vintage are super quirky, as Rachel has sewn on patches of various shapes, styles and colours, from the Californian fashion accessory brand Patch Ya Later. Rachel also incorporates a large quantity of one-off leather belts, tanned clog shoes, funky handbags, and intricately-patterned bralettes and matching underwear - allowing her to satisfy and fulfil every woman’s weakness when it comes to vintage fashion.
At 26 years old and a mum, Rachel March (from Newcastle) is emblematic of a woman pursuing her dream in the modern world, maintaining her incredible fashion stylist career, and bringing up her son Phoenix with impeccable taste for all things retro. Recently, Rachel has worked with the highly-acclaimed Harley-Davidson, successfully customising a woman’s vintage leather jacket in celebration of Fashion Week. This gave her complete creative freedom, allowing her to add metal studs, patches and other details to transform the ordinary leather jacket.
With Rachel proclaiming, “I’ve been collecting Vintage Clothes forever… my love and appreciation for vintage definitely came from my mother”, her Tuesday Vintage Instagram account currently has 30,000 followers. Whilst this makes her absolutely chuffed, she affirms that without her business she would have no creative outlet.
Originally, Rachel studied Graphic Design through TAFE and went on to study Fashion Business and Design at FBI Fashion College in Sydney, with her active efforts to gain internships and retail experience only boosting her love of hoarding vintage clothes. Rachel explains the internal struggle parting from her awesome retro findings, “It is literally SO, so hard. I want to keep everything!”, yet acknowledges she has wonderfully enthusiastic and happy customers who embrace their purchased item just as she’d hoped.
Rachel March was asked on her website, “If Tuesday Vintage was a woman, who would she be?”
Her response was, “An old soul who walks to the beat of her own drum. She is somebody who is spontaneous and true to herself. She’s full of freedom and she does what she wants - she is crazy, beautiful and wild”.
Tuesday Vintage is the epitome of cool, eclectic, bizarre, extraordinary, and real fashion - as it allows individuals to purchase one-off pieces, that no one in the world can buy and own. Rachel March’s hard work has evidently paid off, and through her own admirable and quirky style, she is undoubtedly an incredible fashion icon of our time.
