VTG CLT is popping up at the warehouse located at 2205 N Tryon, Charlotte, NC for the fourth annual Summer Market on July 24th (VIP Shop) and 25th (Market Day)! Come out and spend the day shopping with over 80 vintage & handmade vendors. Leading up to the market, we’ll be sharing vendor spotlight posts that give you a chance to meet some of our amazing vendors in advance of the market.  

We are really excited to welcome Amanda from Formation Design Studio to her first Vintage Charlotte market.  Amanda’s goal is to design your favorite garments.  All of us wanted to wear her effortless, relaxed garments, and we think you will too. Here is Amanda sharing her journey, and what drives her as a designer:

 I graduated with a BFA in Fashion Design from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in 2005. Soon after I was designing for Urban Outfitters. After many years with the company, I decided to move back home to North Carolina in 2010, continuing to freelance design. It was then that I branched out on my own with Formation Design Studio.

It is important to me that I deliver garments that are long lasting, with quality and edge. IMG_3232
I believe that it is important to understand where and how your garment came to life. My designs are made in small quantities with a non-seasonal approach throughout the year, so each piece is unique and wonderful. There is a dedication to quality and detail in every garment. Each piece is made by me, in my North Carolina studio.  Unlike mass production, there is something special about knowing that you have one of just a few pieces made. You and I are part of something that was developed with care, precision, and passion. I want for you to go back to your closet for this “favorite” time and time again.
