Pre-Loved Podcast: D Matt Smith & New burgh Vintage Emporium
In this episode, I’m chatting with Matt Smith, founder of D. Matt Smith vintage & archive. Matt’s love of vintage started in his eastern Kentucky hometown and he was inspired to pursue a degree in apparel merchandising. In the summer of 2005, he took a New York internship with LVMH brands at Donna Karan, and his career trajectory started to shift into the space of trend forecasting, print design, and vintage archiving.
Over the years, Matt developed an incredible print and vintage archive, which is now used by design teams and industry leaders worldwide.
Today, he splits his time between his archive, and curating the Newburgh Vintage Emporium, which is a vintage and antiques collective that he owns with his partner. Since taking over the Newburgh Vintage Emporium in 2019, he’s worked to turn it into a destination in the Hudson Valley and greater New York area – an achievement which was recently recognized by the New York Times! Tune in today to hear the whole story!
Let’s dive right in!
