Since 1994, John Hadeed (Space Lace Gallery Director) has offered the most spectacular fashion-forward vision to clients of all stripes. The high-low focus made John (and Torso Vintages) an instant classic with fashion addicts worldwide. Now, with a new streamlined offering meant to simplify rare and underground fashion in today’s new marketplace, Space Lace offers collectors a holistic set of acquisition solutions.

Space Lace President Angela Braverman, exhausted in her continual global hunt for important fashion, sought to offer an enjoyable integrated experience to fellow fashion collectors. Together with John’s unsurpassed expertise, the pair have used the backdrop of their 15 year friendship to hone a heightened experience for collecting history’s most elusive fashions.
