There is no doubt about it...this edition of the boutique vintage extravaganza A Current Affair (ACA) was by far the best one yet. It was the biggest show, with more vendors than ever before who all brought their most incredible pieces. It was also the busiest show, with crowds flooding the Cooper Design Space penthouse from the opening Saturday night to the end on Sunday. The word has clearly gotten out and designers, stylists, bloggers, manufacturers, vintage aficionados, and fashionistas all spent a blissful weekend with us meeting, mingling, and--most importantly--shopping. It was such a rush of activity that I couldn't capture as many photos as I normally would, but I did manage to take some before and after the biggest flurries of activity. I have such admiration and affection for Richard Wainwright and Joey Grana, co-founders of ACA, along with all the other exhibitors at the show. These photos give you some sense of their talent and the artistry within each of the curated collections. As I've mentioned before, what every vendor has in common is the high quality of their clothing and the respect that what we're selling is truly art.
If you missed this show, fear not...the Holiday edition of A Current Affair takes place the weekend of December 3rd and 4th at the Cooper penthouse once again. Hope to see you there!
