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

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.
