Art Deco Society LA: Casino Moderne

If you ever wanted to step back into 1920s, a time of decadent speakeasies, illegal cocktailing and underground gaming, the closest you can get are films or events by organizations such as the Art Deco Society. Aside from their monthly cocktails in historic places, the Art Deco Society throws a big bash a couple of times a year. A few weeks ago, it was Casino Moderne, a “Boardwalk Empire” inspired night of legal gaming for raffle tickets, legal cocktails and  vintage fashions so divine they should be illegal!

Check out all the action and interviews with some of the night’s scenemakers:

ReVamping Vintage Fashions

In a hip little penthouse lost downtown is a store and workshop called ReVamp, which makes vintage recreations from the period between 1910-1950.  Owned by the ever-stylish Annamarie von Firley (who can always be spotted in a crowd because of her fashion sense and canary-yellow bob), this retro designer makes clothes for the vintage lover and many TV and film productions from a workshop/store that sits in the penthouse stuite of the historic Platt building, wedged between the Broadway Bar and the Orpheum Theatre. They also host weekend retro hair and makeup workshops to teach you how to get the right look to match your period outfits. Other events include fashion shows for their latest collection that was cute indeed! See their super-cute fashions by clicking the link below:
