Fine Vintage Clothing and Luxury Goods
Couture du Jour NYC was born in 2005 & we call home a tiny Brick and Mortar store in Hell's Kitchen, West of Time's Sq in... The Place So Nice They Named It Twice: New York, New York.
Being in the Theatre District has afforded us a huge variety of clients, both buyers and sellers. Most of our dealers are longtime collectors and former store owners who bring us goodies from as far away as Dubai and New Zealand.
Known for our command of history and the stories behind why we wear what we wear, we're all about the details. We strive to only carry 25 years or older, Excellent to Mint condition, fully repaired, cleaned & ready to wear. I'm picky and my wee shop is a reflection of me.
Couture du Jour NYC
Wearing vintage for 35 yrs, selling it for 20. Love history, travel, writing, TV, Film & music. I wish Docs were still made in UK. I love color, texture & geometry. Fave movie=Cabaret. Sleep to Cocteau Twins, wake to Mudhoney. I miss Bill Hicks.
Assistant, Stylist, Photographer
2 wks after moving to NYC Maria walked into Couture du Jour, a few blocks from her Time's Sq language school. It was kismet. 3 years later, Maria speaks English and has become invaluable to the shop, to me. She loves Pink, Glitter & Stars!

I'm not happy... Please help!
Like most vintage stores, we have a No Returns/Exchanges policy. However, we also want to be honorable to our customer's needs. On the occasion where we've made a mistake in a listing, misrepresented an item, failed to deliver on time or even the likes of a garment/accessory falling apart after one wear, we're amiable to a solution that is fair and agreed upon by both parties. In agreement to this, we do ask our customers to carefully read listings, examine photos and ask questions before purchase. Thanks!

How often do you put out new items?
In our W 44th St shop, we put out New Arrivals everyday. On Etsy, we will add things weekly, sometimes daily.
Do I have to clean it before I wear it?
No, we clean and repair everything. With few exceptions where cleaning or repair isn't possible, it's all ready to wear.
What labels do you carry?
While we do carry the high-end houses and agree that big names usually provide quality in construction and depth in design, we also know; they're not the only ones. Neither Maria nor I are "label people" and it does not determine whether we choose to carry something. We care more about what it is than who it is. I've seen incredible ideas on a dress in a less than desirable fabric as well as great prints on a simple dress. From this I've gathered that "everyone who is anyone starts somewhere."
