Tommy Ton Feature on A Current Affair & Liz Goldywyn on NOWNESS

Tommy Ton's NOWNESS photo of Liz Goldwyn & her curated installation at A Current Affair

For a feature on one of my favorite sites, NOWNESS, photographer/blogger Tommy Ton of the Jak & Jil blog (also a favorite) came out to LA and interviewed/photographed the always lovely Liz Goldwyn and A Current Affair, the vintage pop-up marketplace she hosted in conjunction with her paperback book launch "Pretty Things: The Last Generation of Burlesque Queens."

A Current Affair was founded by Joey Grana of Scout and Richard Wainwright, a private vintage dealer. While this event is an ongoing client of Trent PR, its also a pleasure as I've been a vintage fashion lover since my teen years.

Guests of the event included Marisa Tomei, Jessica Stroup, Lisa Eisner, as well as many of the best Hollywood stylists, designers, and style influencers.

As someone who has always felt the thrill of the hunt when searching for vintage treasures, I love the below quote from Tommy's interview with Liz.
TT: Where does enthusiasm or passion—like collecting or historical research—cross over into fetish?

LG: I think anyone who is a collector is totally eccentric. It is an obsession that drives them for sure. And, yes, it’s fetishistic.

Mick Rock Week in LA

One of my first emails today was from the man who showed us all what rock & roll really looks like, Mick Rock. Its rather dreamy to be working on a project with Mick and he couldn't be any more wonderful as a person to work with. His images not only captured those stolen & intimate moments amongst friends, but also high influenced the fashion world in showing off the looks of some of our most favorite pop culture icons.

Saturday, December 18th from 4-6PM Mick will be on hand signing his new book at the opening of his new exhibition at Confederacy in LA. Its a great opportunity to have a chat and get a personalized gift for yourself or a loved one.

John Lennon

I knew his music before I came out of the womb. Such an influence on so many of us and the world. And what an all-time couple. I can just hit repeat on this song for an hour or more....

♥ & peace.
