LA’s October, 2014 Vintage Fashion Show was held on the second floor of the Reef.
The aroma of roasted coffee and the sound of hip beats filled the open air of this lofty space. Red leather couches lined down the middle divided the room as well as giving way for a spot to rest tired bodies and heavy shopping bags.
Local and traveled vendors displayed their goodies in fashionable arrangements for great ideas and visibility of merchandise. I circled and looped the floor two maybe three times to make sure I was able to see everything. There was vast variety of periods to choose from. Not only clothing and accessories but one could acquire vinatge magazines and literature about vintage fashion. I had my favorite spots picked out by the end of the day!!
Maude Lady Vintage, brought to you by Jaclyn, is mobile. She restored a vintage camper into a mobile vintage clothing store. What a great idea. Jaclyn has put a whole new spin on boutique shopping. If you are having an event, she can come to you!! Maude Lady vintage is innovative and the future for “fashion carts”. From the wine valley comes Barbara Grigg, Vintage Fashion. Her store is full of classic finds; silk, furs, gloves, hats, shoes. Next time Im wine tasting I will be looking for her.
Susie Londoner, Vintazia Vintage, has an eclectic display of vintage and her own designs. She is launching her own line and will holding a “launch party” where she will give out small prizes and take orders. Her line is carefree-inspired using light weight materials and funky designs, including pantaloons.
Even if you can’t buy anything, the Vintage Show will inspire design and fashion taste for anyone, and of all ages. I can’t wait for the next one in 2015!!
