Calling all vintage devotees! What happens when two authorities of vintage couture collide? A Current Affair is born. Vintage mavens Richard Wainwright (owner of NEW/FOUND) and Joey Grana (owner of Scout) joined forces to produce a truly one-of-a-kind vintage pop-up market, called A Current Affair. The pop-up market presents a unique opportunity to shop a select assortment of vintage apparel, jewelry, and accessories from over 30 premier vintage retailers and private dealers in LA and beyond.
CULT: How did the two of you meet?
Joey: We met doing the vintage shows, and started to work together when Richard began curating vintage jewelry for Scout.
CULT: How was the idea to start A Current Affair born?
Richard: We recognized a void in the marketplace. There are so many girls who want vintage but don’t want to look like they stepped out of a period film. What most of our customers want is fashion-forward vintage and there is no other show that brings it to them.
CULT: What draws you to vintage fashion?
Joey: There’s always something I haven’t seen before. Textiles, prints, shapes…
CULT: If you had to pick your 3 favorite Vintage finds to-date, what would they be?
Richard: I collect Helmut Lang so I’m always happy to find rare pieces made during his tenure!
CULT: What vintage staple piece should every gal and guy have in their wardrobe?
Joey: A vintage piece that you love, that fits well, and that you identify with your personal style.
