Alexander Jung, 23, of Hendersonville, and his girlfriend Lauren Seacrist, 22, of Lexington, S.C., were in Saluda and Tryon Monday, Aug. 14 having their photos taken in their vintage 1940s era clothing. Both are vintage clothing aficionados and collectors, preferring the tailoring, individual fits, care and attention to detail that clothes of the past embodied. They find their clothing at vintage stores and online, or they have pieces custom made by tailor sites on Both also like to swing dance, and they go to Greenville Lindy Hoppers regularly, and Jung says he is starting a swing dance club at NC State in Raleigh where he is a student majoring in chemical engineering. Seacrist is a graduate of Lander with a biology degree. (Photos by Claire Sachse)
