BEHIND THE DESIGN
"This is more than nalia. This is more than fashion. This is art. This is The Nostalgia."
The love for vintage paraphernalia started in 2017 at Savannah State University on the first floor of the Hill Hall building. I was sitting at the first desk on the right in room 108. As I was looking through old Savannah State yearbooks, I noticed how Greek life was so different back in the 50s and 60s. From the events they hosted, to their unique fashion, I've always wanted to know what it would be like to be in a Black Greek Letter Organization on a HBCU campus during that time.
After looking through Savannah State's yearbooks, I was curious to see what Greek life was like at other HBCU campuses. I googled every HBCU and looked at their yearbooks if it was available. I became fascinated with the varsity style sweaters Greeks and athletes wore. I then bought two of these sweaters for myself before I was inspired to bring back this vintage style for the modern day Greeks.
The fashion and the stories from old school Greeks will be the closest thing we will have as an experience to the old days. On March 1, 2019, the idea of The Nostalgia clothing company came about.
