PRLog - Feb. 9, 2012 - Boston, MA, February 09, 2012 - Investing in vintage designer fashion is catching on as one of the more unusual alternative investment asset classes, according to Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

The alternative investment advocacy group claims that people with an interest in fashion, as well as people simply with an interest in making great returns, are turning to classic couture to do so.

AAA's claims are based on a recent CNBC interview wit William Bank-Blaney, who runs a lucrative vintage clothing retailer in London. He recommends starting with classic designer clothes from big names. He said, "If I was going to start investing in fashion, the key things I would start with would be works by the great masters.

"Ossie Clark for British design, Dior for French design, Norman Hartnell again for British design. These are pieces by iconic designers that have a worldwide appeal and audience."

In terms of the return on investment potential, Blake-Blaney said that this is relatively strong: "Most pieces appreciate quite substantially. We are finding there is between a 10 and 20 percent year-on-year uplift in good pieces of vintage."

Having a good eye helps in making the right choices, according to the CNBC article, which also includes interview with Kerry Taylor of Kerry Taylor Auctions. She adds that the best designer vintage garments are becoming increasingly rare, which obviously adds to their value. “There aren’t huge supplies for these things any more – they are running out,” she asserted.

Her advice to anyone thinking of investing in designer vintage was to look for designer labels, and for garments that are in great conditions and have not be altered in any way.

AAA is an advocate of investing in alternative asset classes, such as art, antiques, real estate, private equity, precious metals and forestry. “Forestry investment in particularly offers a great chance to make strong returns from a much less volatile market than equities,” stated AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson.
