What Goes Around Comes Around has been the leading purveyor of authentic luxury and vintage pieces since the inception of its SoHo, NYC flagship store in 1993. The core values of the company, founded by Gerard Maione and Seth Weisser, are authenticity, quality and collectability. WGACA elevated the vintage market with its curated vision and concept. In 2008, a Los Angeles location was opened to compliment the NYC flagship.
The WGACA buying team travels the world, hand-selecting the finest items from the most coveted fashion labels. The highly curated collection includes clothing and accessories from the 1880's-1990s for both men and women. WGACA has the world's largest collection of vintage Chanel and amazing selections from the top luxury labels, such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Hermes. WGACA has set the standard for the luxury vintage market.
The What Goes Around Comes Around website was re-launched in 2014 with an exclusive collection available only through www.whatgoesaroundnyc.com. The luxury accessories department has expanded exponentially and has thus created a wholesale division which services many of the leading retailers worldwide including: Lane Crawford HK, Barneys Japan, Harvey Nichols Dubai and many others. In November 2014, WGACA opened its first freestanding international store in Kuwait City.
WGACA is internationally acclaimed for their collections of authentic vintage rock tees, denim, militaria and Americana. In addition to the retail stores, WGACA maintains an appointment-only archive to service the fashion industry. The archive houses one of the most extensive vintage clothing and textile libraries in the world. Vintage aficionados, editors, stylists and the industry's top designers from around the globe frequent WGACA to delve into its world-famous collection. What Goes Around Comes Around continues to raise the bar for the luxury, collectible-vintage market.
