I first became aware of Fake Fancy’s stunningly curated vintage pieces on Instagram and was drawn in further by collaborating with its forward-thinking founder & CEO, Geraldine Jorge. Her knack for finding super unique, personality-filled pieces is unmatched. Fake Fancy’s vision is just like its muses, timeless yet trendsetting. Wondering where Geraldine finds her inspo or who she’d love to dress? Read on.

WHAT DRAWS YOUR EYE WHEN SOURCING VINTAGE?

I tend to gravitate towards pieces that I haven’t seen in a while. Stuff that speaks to my inner sixteen year old but that could easily be worn today because it’s still that fly and fresh. It doesn’t necessarily have to be designer but definitely something that people are gonna continuously ask you were you found that at all day long.

 

MOST INSPIRING 90’s/00’s TRENDSETTER?

Cant do it. The 90’s and 00’s were full of so many trend setters it’s almost impossible to just narrow it down to one. If I had to pick my top three it would have to be Lil Kim, Mariah Carey after she left Tommy and Gwen Stefani because I have a thing for trend setters. Theres really soo many more but thats a whole conversation in itself tbh.

 

MOST BELOVED VINTAGE PIECE IN YOUR COLLECTION?

Right now my most prized/beloved possession would have to be a vintage purple belt I took from my grandmother’s closet after she passed away. It has a huge gold buckle and gives off all the Selena vibes. Also,(because I can never choose one) a yellow plaid Gaultier blazer like the one Cher wore in Clueless.

ANY SPECIFIC PIECES YOU’RE ON THE HUNT FOR?

I typically like to let the universe surprise me. Sometimes an old item or piece will pop into my head and then I have no choice but to hunt it down. I’m not big on searching for trends but if I happen to find things that eventually become a trend thats another story. I flip through old magazines or watch old music videos and become all nostalgic about a brand or a purse, anything really.. then its like game on. I want you/need you now!

 

WHO WOULD YOU LOVE TO DRESS IN FAKE FANCY?

 I definitely have a list of people I’d love to see wearing Fake Fancy, one of them already purchased some pieces and I can not wait to see how she rocks her stuff.. (s/o 2 KNC’s fly ass). I would love to see Ming Lee Simmons in some of my vintage, as Kimora Simmons daughter it would only be right. Her mom paved the way and definitely inspired me and so many others growing up. It would be awesome to have her in some throw back baby phat. Ming Lee if your reading boo, hit ya girl up.
