The partners of the Vintage Fashion Expo and Rin Tanaka of Inspiration LA announce the collaboration of Vintage Weekend LA, the birth of an annual shopping experience over one weekend in downtown Los Angeles. The collaboration is designed to provide a connoisseur level event for a diverse crowd of vintage clothing collectors, fashion and style enthusiasts, the stylishly expressive and label obsessed with one common interest – a devotion to vintage. In total, over 150 vintage dealers will be exhibiting a range of clothing, accessories, heritage lifestyle and more from the rare to the best of designer, craftsman and period fashion pieces.
“As this is our first year downtown at the LA Convention Center and Rin’s first time at the LA Mart, we felt that both shows could capitalize on the growing community downtown as well as the proximity to the Fashion District. The fit couldn’t be more perfect–our customers overlap only in the broadest sense that they are interested in all things vintage. We feel enthusiastic customers would think nothing of travelling a few blocks to check out an equally amazing show.” – Kyle Deise, Partner in Vintage Fashion Expo.
“Many vintage addicts, especially from early vintage generations, have been having passionate experiences like my own. That’s because most of us have simply loved vintage style culture for many decades without asking ourselves any question about why we do it. We want to share these experiences with new vintage addicts, pass the torch to new generations. This is why we created Vintage Weekend.” – Rin Tanaka, Inspiration LA Vintage Weekend LA (Friday, February 7th – Sunday, February 9th, 2014) is a collaborative experience taking place in two separate locations downtown:
Event held at the Los Angeles Convention Center and Inspiration at the LA Mart. Events kick off with “Friday Preview Night” at Inspiration and “Early Buy” Saturday morning at Vintage Fashion Expo.
