"SarahJayne Gayeski began buying, collecting, and wearing vintage clothing in
1994, at the tender age of 13. Sooner after she began selling her finds to vintage
boutiques throughout Portland, OR and Seattle, WA. Eventually, she held a job at
one such boutique, while attending fashion design school.
She founded Knockout Clothing in 2000, making her finds available to a global market
via the world wide web. In addition to a cult following of young fashionistas, Knockout
Clothing has sold to such noteables as Tracy Tolkien - author of Dressing Up Vintage,
rockabilly historian, record label honco, and living legend Rockin' Ronnie Weiser, Camille
Shaheen - daughter and archivist of reknown designer Alfred Shaheen, the infamous
Chelsea Girl vintage boutique of NYC - who supplied wardrobe to Sex In The City,
rockabilly chanteuse Marti Brom, and above all, modern day pinup queen Bernie Dexter.
Treasures from Knockout Clothing have also been added to museum inventories,
theatrical companies, Hollywood costume houses, and the private collections of
celebrities such as Dita von Teese, Jennifer Tilly, and Chris Isaak.
After taking a leave in 2008, Knockout Clothing is back with a bang in 2009."
