Clever Vintage Clothing Takes Part in East Village West Exhibit

Authentic vintage outfits and mannequins are provided as part of Ann Magnuson and Kenny Scharf’s Royal/T art installation reflecting Hollywood’s influence on NYC’s neo-Dada art movement.

 

LOS ANGELES — September 29, 2011 — Genuine vintage garments and vintage department store mannequins from Clever Vintage Clothing will be included in East Village West, an art exhibit created by Ann Magnuson and Kenny Scharf that celebrates California pop culture and Hollywood’s influence on New York City’s neo-Dada art movement. The event reflecting New York City’s fabled ‘70s/’80s art scenetakes place at the Royal/T (8910 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232) from October 1, 2011 until January 10, 2012 with an opening reception Saturday, October 1 from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m. East Village West is in official partnership with Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, a joint initiative between the Getty Foundation and the Getty Research Institute to recover the historical record of art in Southern California.

 

The Clever Vintage Clothing garments and mannequins will be a part of an homage to the Ladies Auxiliary of the Lower East Side, a mock social club that Magnuson created as a parody of the Junior League during the zeitgeist of the early 1980s Downtown New York City scene. The vintage department store mannequins will be dressed in 1950s attire akin to the clothing worn by Magnuson and her group at that time.

 

“Dressing in vintage was very important to the late ‘70s / early ‘80s art scene,” said Dave C. Temple, owner of Clever Vintage Clothing. “The irony and edginess fit the esthetic perfectly, because vintage wasn’t an accepted or expected part of one’s wardrobe”

 

Pacific Standard Time is an enormous and unprecedented artistic collaboration celebrating the birth of the Los Angeles art scene. Beginning October 2011, over 60 cultural establishments will make their contributions to this region-wide initiative encompassing every major Los Angeles art movement from 1945 to 1980.

 

East Village West includes art by Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Asquint, Tseng Kwong Chi, John Sex, Kitty Brophy, Bruno Schmidt, Kenny Scharf, Ann Magnuson, Vincent Gallo, Frank Holliday, Scott Covert, Stefano Castronova; photographs by Robert Carrithers, Harvey Wang, Ande Whyland, Lina Bertucci, Joseph Szkodzinski; video by Barry Shils, Steve Brown, Andy Rees, Tom Rubnitz, Kenny Scharf, Ann Magnuson and others; fashions by Natasha Adonzio (Natasha N.Y.C.) and Katy K; special 'vintage' DJ mix by original Club 57 DJ Dany Johnson in the "Porta Party" installation pod; plus cool ephemera and rare video provided by original Club 57 members like Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, Kristian Hoffman, Howie Pyro, Naomi Regelson, Jerry Beck and many more.

 

The opening night reception features scandalous acts of live art and scintillating performances by Prince Poppycock, Timur of the Dime Museum, Drag King Mo B. Dick as John Sex (along with “his” Bodacious Ta-Tas), Stacy Dawson Stearns & The Psych-Out Dada Go-Go Dancers, Ann Magnuson, Kenny Scharf and DJ Howie Pyro. Plus: incredible video from Club 57 never before shown in public and California New Wave by Austin Young with Andrew Marlin, Taryn Nicole Piana, Squeaky Blonde and Fade-Dra; Sizzling New Wave makeovers featuring electric airbrushing and  credit card blush.

 

More information about East Village West and the exhibit’s opening can be found on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=140446709382410.

 

Following the East Village West opening, Clever Vintage Clothing will produce a fashion show at the newly renovated ballroom of the elegant Los Angeles Athletic Club (431 West Seventh St., Los Angeles, CA 90014) as part of the Los Angeles Wine Tasting’s Noir Soiree on October 7, 2011 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. celebrating the photography from the Golden Era of Hollywood.

It’s an honor to work directly with the entertainment industry to ensure these periods are represented in the most accurate way possible.”

Pam Am marks the second major television series to source authentic outfits from Clever Vintage Clothing to ensure a reliable depiction of an era of the past. AMC’s wildly popular Mad Men series utilized garments from Clever Vintage Clothing to dress its characters as well.

Anyone can shop with Clever Vintage Clothing by appointment at its showroom located in downtown Los Angeles.

Vintage Weddings Gain Popularity, Trend Evolves

Clever Vintage Clothing sees a surge in vintage-styled weddings with new methods of incorporation.

 

LOS ANGELES — May 22, 2011 — This 2011 wedding season brings even more clients to Clever Vintage’s downtown Los Angeles showroom than last year giving the vintage concept an even larger surge in popularity. Meanwhile, the trend of vintage style weddings has evolved with garments reflecting personal symbolism and the theme extending beyond the attire.

 

“This year’s wedding season has been very exciting, because the movement of having a vintage-inspired marriage ceremony has not only grown but also evolved into something even more sentimental,” said Dave C. Temple, Owner of Clever Vintage Clothing.

 

According to Temple, last year’s 'vintage weddings' he styled were almost exclusively inspired by a fashion trend and the inclusion of vintage garments was mostly indiscriminate. In contrast, Clever Vintage Clothing’s clients in 2011 have taken a distinctively different approach. Couples this year often come with a desire to include vintage elements that reflect specific individual sentiment. For example, one bride came to Temple with only a newspaper article describing her grandmother’s wedding dress from the 1940s; all photographs of it and the dress itself had been destroyed in a fire. He was able to source a dress that was a perfect fit!

 

Temple has seen clients executing the vintage style to a larger extent this year as well. A recent client carried an art deco theme from the clothing to even the location by having her wedding take place on a cruise ship. This type of thorough implementation of vintage happens more commonly in 2011 than ever before. "A huge impact can be made by extending the theme from the clothing to the décor and setting, and doing so usually results in tremendous cost savings for the couple," Temple pointed out. Oftentimes, Clever Vintage Clothing can handle styling these additional aspects of the wedding as well as the attire, making the experience simpler for clients.

 

Clever Vintage Clothing offers a unique one-on-one approach through appointments at its showroom located in downtown Los Angeles at 117 W. 9th Street #918, Los Angeles, CA 90015. An initial phone consultation prior coupled with the in person meeting gives clients individual attention that is hard to find.

 

Couples interested in having Clever Vintage Clothing style their wedding can also meet Temple and his staff at the next Helms Design District Vintage Boutique taking place on Saturday, June 11, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lightspace Studio located at 8755 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232. (10 minutes from downtown, 40 minutes from Orange County, 30 minutes from Long Beach and 15 minutes from Santa Monica). Entry to the event is $5.00; however, 100 free tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis via Eventbrite (http://helmsvintage.eventbrite.com). Clients interested in having a wedding styled by Clever Vintage Clothing may also contact Temple in advance for free admission to the event. Those interested in the Helms Design District Vintage Boutique can learn more at the show’s Facebook page: Helms Design District Vintage Boutique.

Mad Men Inspired Holiday Shopping

Clever Vintage Clothing and its Vintage Boutique Show provide authentic outfits for Mad Men holiday parties.

 

LOS ANGELES — November 21, 2010 — Mad Men themed parties are all the rage this holiday season, and shoppers are finding the perfect outfits they need from Clever Vintage Clothing at its downtown Los Angeles showroom. With many Clever Vintage Clothing garments actually featured on AMC’s hit drama series, clients know that they are getting authentic attire. Plus, on December 11, 2010, shoppers will have the opportunity to browse wears from an additional 14 vintage dealers at the Helms Design District Vintage Boutique show in Culver City hosted by Clever Vintage Clothing. While the Mad Men phenomenon gained much of its momentum last year among dedicated fans, this year it has caught on in a much bigger way, said Dave Temple, owner of Clever Vintage Clothing.

 

“I get at least two phone calls and emails a week from customers who found us by word-of-mouth or online looking for an authentic Mad Men inspired outfit for a Christmas party,” Temple said. “Even some men are calling, which is great, because that shows everyone’s getting into it.”

 

In fact, Temple said many of the shoppers are getting outfits for office holiday parties. With corporate cutbacks, companies have started finding creative ways to create a fun holiday experience for their staff while avoiding the large expenses associated with the extravagant parties of the past. Mad Men parties provide the perfect throwback to an era when "the office Christmas party" was a fun way for co-workers to bond in a more simple way — when Susan in accounting had a few too many cocktails or Larry and Jane were caught making out in the boss’s office.

 

Shoppers can make an appointment to browse the huge selection of authentic vintage wears Clever Vintage Clothing has to offer at its showroom in downtown Los Angeles by calling (310) 650-8357 or sending an email to info@clevervintageclothing.com.

 

The Helms Design District Vintage Boutique on December 11, 2010 will offer classic, designer and repurposed women’s vintage clothing, hard-to-find men’s vintage wears, vintage jewelry and other vintage accessories from individually selected top-tier dealers and designers including Rockstar Vintage Couture, Maxine Goldberg, Little Treasures, Jermel Nakia, Vintage Blue Moon, Tresor de Vintage, Elizabeth G, Timeless Vixen, Miss Kory Lynn and Clever Vintage Clothing. It will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lightspace Studio located at 8755 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232. (10 minutes from downtown, 40 minutes from Orange County, 30 minutes from Long Beach and 15 minutes from Santa Monica). Entry to the event is $5.00; however, 100 free tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis via Eventbrite (http://helmsvintage.eventbrite.com/). Additionally, shoppers who mention which media outlet they heard about the event from will receive free entry.

 

The Vintage Boutique show at the Helms Design District has been featured in Los Angeles Times, Today’s Vintage, Collector Magazine, Mondette, The Find and My Vintage Vogue. Keeping with the nostalgic theme, the event will even be catered by Auntie Em’s Kitchen from the hip eastside neighborhood of Eagle Rock serving vintage boxed lunches and take home holiday treats.

 

Dealers interested in participating in the December Vintage Boutique event should reserve their space soon. Space will be limited in order to maintain the show’s intimate feel and to keep the event uncongested.

Another Mad Men Character Cleverly Dressed

Latest season of AMC’s hit drama features second Clever Vintage Clothing garment.

 

LOS ANGELES — October 9, 2010 — Vintage clothing enthusiasts revel at each new episode of AMC’s wildly popular drama series Mad Men as if they are reliving an era due to the keen eye of those who provide the wardrobe of is celebrated characters. Clever Vintage Clothing is such a provider and is proud to have had its second garment featured prominently on Mad Men in this fourth season’s seventh episode titled “The Suitcase.”  The episode features Peggy Olson (Elizabeth Moss) wearing Clever Vintage Clothing’s nylon blend crepe dropped waist bow front dress with an allover rose and leaf pattern in white, olive, black and goldenrod.

 

“It was an ecstatic moment to see another one of Clever Vintage Clothing’s pieces on such a admired television show in the vintage world,” said Dave Temple, owner of Clever Vintage Clothing. “It’s really an honor, because it says a lot about our ability to find beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces from the past.”

 

Peggy’s dress was worn throughout the episode and received a significant amount of airtime, with blogs immediately writing about the extremely unusual occurrence of Peggy wearing florals. It was a ruckus that Clever Vintage Clothing was more than happy to help start.

 

The first time a Clever Vintage Clothing garment was filmed on Mad Men was season one. In it, Betty Draper (January Jones) wore a silk shantung button front blouse with a border print of turquoise, purple and tan butterflies.

 

What many may not realize is that anyone can shop with Clever Vintage Clothing. The vintage dealer has a showroom located in downtown Los Angeles that can be visited by appointment. Mad Men fans who want Clever Vintage Clothing garments for themselves can also check CleverVintageClothing.com for the multiple shows it takes part in throughout the year.

The head-to-toe looks will include a stunning array of vintage styles in a metallic theme with the unique vintage dresses, jewelry and accessories that Clever Vintage Clothing has supplied, which are designed to set off the amazing artistry of Louise Green's Millinery.

Vintage Dealers Band for Form New Outlet

 

Top designers and dealers from Los Angeles area set up a new type of show for collectors and enthusiasts.

 

CULVER CITY — August 4, 2010 — This spring, a group of vintage clothing dealers in the Los Angeles area led by Dave Temple of Clever Vintage Clothing banded together to create a new type of outlet for vintage enthusiasts to shop. They call it a Vintage Boutique. The concept was to create a small gathering of independent dealers to share the period wares with their frequent collectors.

 

“Due to the uncertainty in the marketplace with websites like eBay.com and Etsy.com, we formed a new type of show,” he said. “Our event is unlike pop-up shops and trunk shows. They’re more personal and relaxed.”

 

It worked. June’s inaugural show made up of 12 individually selected dealers and designers drew in an attendance of over 100 people, which even included a young hip crowd. It gave specially invited collectors the chance to browse classic, designer and repurposed wears in an intimate environment called the LightSpace Studio in the Helm’s Design District in Culver City.

 

Because of the positive response they received from the first show, the second show, which is being held on September 25, 2010 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the same location will be free and open to the public. While the focus is on vintage clothing, some vendors will also sell vintage accessories and other “smalls.”

 

The show has also expanded to include more booths, so new designers and dealers who would like to participate are welcome to join in on a first come first serve basis; however, reservations are quickly running out because Temple wants to retain the small personal feel. Several of the same vendors will return including Timeless Vixen (TimelessVixen.com).

 

“I knew I’d be back as soon as we finished the first show,” said Lauren Lepire of Timeless Vixen. “It was a well organized, comfortable event with quality merchandise in a space that was perfect for collectors to shop in — well-lit with natural lighting, plenty of space, nice dressing areas and air-conditioned.”

 

Temple added that the show will retain its comfortable and intimate environment that many customers complimented, and Café Max will again provide a scrumptious selection of food for purchase at the event.

 

The LightSpace Studio is located at 8755 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232. Shoppers interested in attending the Vintage Boutique Show should visit CleverVintageClothing.com for details or sign up for the Clever Vintage Clothing newsletter by sending an email request to info@clevervintageclothing.com.

Something Old and Something New

Brides-to-be find their own individuality in vintage weddings styled with period wears from Clever Vintage Clothing.

 

LOS ANGELES — May 24, 2010 — Modern-day brides frequently turn to the past these days to give their very special day a splash of individuality by dressing their participants in vintage wears from Clever Vintage Clothing. The owner of this 19-year-old Los Angeles establishment, Dave C. Temple, said it’s becoming the bread-and-butter of his business.

 

“I meet at least one upcoming bride at each trade show who inquires about us outfitting either a handful or all of the people in her wedding in vintage clothing,” he said. “Many times it’s the artistic or alternative types, but more and more lately, it’s just someone who wants their wedding to be distinctive. I’ve outfitted three vintage weddings in the past five months — and that was in the off season.”

 

There’s a misconception that vintage weddings have to be shockingly different, Temple said. With appropriate styling and selection, the vintage aspect can be understated but still make a big difference. Temple said that the final outcome does not have to look “costume-y.” Brides can, and often do, combine traditional style clothing with only a selection of vintage wears.

 

There are surprisingly many ways to go about styling a vintage wedding. Temple says his advantage is both his many years in the business along with his fully stocked downtown Los Angeles showroom. A bride can bring her wedding participants to be fitted one day and then they can come back soon thereafter and find that Temple has come up with multiple combinations of styles that can be mixed and matched to fit everyone involved. He said brides often come in with one look in mind and end up with something much more different and unique after he’s taken that inspiration and provided new ideas based on her taste.

 

“It can be a really fun experience for the bride,” Temple said, “because she often doesn’t realize how creative one can be until I show all the options.”
