Designer Fashions of Yesterday Get a Makeover at the HOLLYWOOD THRIFT SHOP FASHION SHOW & PARTY March 8 2013
At the upcoming Hollywood Thrift Shop Fashion Show & Party hosted at hotspot BOULEVARD3, party-goers will have the opportunity to view and purchase the fashions from three of LA’s most popular thrift stores: American Rebel, American Vintage, and Buffalo Exchange.
In today’s world where the masses wait with baited breath to see the latest designs being debuted on celebrities at the Academy Awards, that many people are opting to wear apparel plucked from decades prior seems counter-culture. From the vintage fashions of the 20’s to the grunge apparel of the 90’s, young fashionistas are finding new ways to reinvent themselves at LA’s best thrift stores. Hollywood, a city reputed for its chic and glamour, is populated by thousands of young aspiring ingénues and leading men vying for fame. The daunting challenge of having to dress like a star on a barista’s budget has spurred Hollywood’s most beautiful people to turn “thrift shopping” into the latest new fad.
With Hollywood’s most popular thrift stores being frequented by the likes of Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Chloe Sevigny and Drew Barrymore, vintage shopping is no longer for those shopping on a dime. Rather, it is for the dedicated fashion connoisseur seeking a timeless fashion treasure that will make them stand out from the crowd.
Doors open at 9:30pm and the Fashion Show starts promptly at 11pm, Friday, March 8. Admission is $20 at the door, or FREE with shopping receipt from American Rebel, American Vintage, or Buffalo Exchange. Prizes are awarded to guests flaunting the best vintage couture and include gift certificates up to $500 in value. Hollywood hotspot, BOULEVARD3, is located at 6523 Sunset Blvd, between Wilcox and Schrader.
