High Femme History

High Femme Vintage was founded din 2019 by american fashion designer Jamie McCarty. Part of our business focuess on selling vintage as is, while the other half reconstruct, alters, and “saves” garments perhaps not thought of use anymore due to wear, holes, stains, or other charms vintage clothing comes with. We take in these outcasts, do repairs, make upgrades, and sometimes repurpose them into brand new luxury garments made from their ancestors.

After graduating from Parsons, the New School for Design with a BFA in fashion design, I’ve worked nearly every job in the fashion industry from designing my own collection, to serving as a stylist and tailor to the stars. Over the years I’ve learned a lot about fashion and how it impacts the world around us. Today, fashion stands as one of the industries most detrimental to the environment. It is 2nd only to the oil industry in the harm it causes on the environment. The only way out now is recycling. I’ve been a life long collector of vintage, and now I’m bringing my best to you.
