Workshop: Join us Apr. 22 for Behind the Scenes of the Rental World for Vintage Sellers


Veteran vintage dealer Ian Drummond joins the Vintage Sellers Community Apr. 22 to share his journey into the vintage rental world for film and television production

Have you ever considered offering rentals as a service for your vintage shop? Or wondered about getting into the film/TV production world via rentals?

We're thrilled to have veteran vintage dealer Ian Drummond, founder of Ian Drummond Vintage and the Ian Drummond Collection and member of the Vintage Sellers Community, join us to deliver a public talk about vintage rentals.

Behind the Scenes of the Rental World for Vintage Sellers

Monday, April 22, 2024

6 pm ET/3 pm PT

On Apr. 22, Ian Drummond, founder of the Ian Drummond Collection and Vintage Sellers Community member, will be on hand to chat all about the world of vintage rentals.

Ian has been a passionate collector of vintage clothing for over 35 years, at first just shopping for himself, and then worldwide to stock his first vintage clothing store, 20th Century Frox — the foundation for what is now the Ian Drummond Collection.

Ian began his career in the Toronto film industry in the early 1990s, and continues to this day via his rental house.

A member of IATSE 873 since 1997,  he’s worked as an assistant costume designer on numerous projects; on Hairspray and Cinderella Man as the extras coordinator (responsible for the costuming of 3,000+ background performers in each film.)

As well, Ian was the wardrobe buyer on Chicago, an Oscar winner for costume design.

Through all of these productions Ian has gained invaluable knowledge about what works in the realm of vintage clothing for film and television, and keeps all this in mind as he shops for the collection.

In the studio, Ian is often requested to pull from the collection, providing his excellent service to Emmy- and Oscar-winning productions worldwide.

  • Getting real about the realities for curating vintage for rental
  • Protecting inventory
  • The ins and outs of the film/TV production world
  • Making connections
  • Where a vintage seller fits into the "chain of command" of large productions

And more!
