Vintage in Los Angeles: A Current Affair

A curated selection of vendors’ wares by author Rose Apodaca.

Pop-up vintage show A Current Affair proved a seductive shopping destination in downtown Los Angeles this past weekend, with over 30 vendors from around the U.S. hawking prime apparel and accessories from throughout the 20th century.  Perched in the penthouse of the stylish Cooper building (home to numerous contemporary apparel showrooms), the show was hosted by Rose Apodaca, author of Fred Hayman: The Extraordinary Difference  and contributor to Harper’s Bazaar, Style.com, Paper, and more.  KCRW DJ Marion Hodges spun tunes while enthusiastic crowds browsed the wares and took in an installation of sculptures by artist Rafa Esparza, featuring roosters made from re-purposed Nike cortez sneakers.

Now in its fifth edition, stay tuned for the next A Current Affair, co-founded by Joey Grant, owner of L.A. vintage boutique Scout and Richard Wainwright, owner of New/Found, a vintage concept studio dealing in designer and costume jewelry.
