“Sustainable Fashion is as important as recycling. You can help the environment and stay fashionable,” says Bridgett Artise. “Born Again Vintage is the meeting of two eras, the past and the future. In bringing the worlds of yesterday and today together into a unique form of fashion, this line is where classic meets funky, sophisticated meets urban and timeless meets now.”
Bridgett Artise is the founder of Born Again Vintage in Montclair, NJ and former partner of Altier 516, who won Best Couture Shop of Essex County by Morris | Essex Health and Life Magazine in 2012.
