This past weekend Inspiration LA returned to Los Angeles. A 'ComicCon of vintage clothing, put on by Japanese Americana afficionado Rin Tanaka, Inspiration LA celebrates vintage America style, ranging from clothes, to leather goods to hand made bicycles.
The last two years the event was held at the dank, dark, gigantic Queen Mary. This year, it moved to LA Mart, just east of downtown. While a much better, more user friendly space, it was overwhelming, with literally hundreds of vendors selling their wares old and new. Below are a few shots from the day.
After Inspiration LA closed its doors until next year, RRL, opened theirs for the annual official after party. With Kogi Tacos and free beer, RRL was a gracious host, keeping the store open until 10pm for partygoers to eat, drink and shop, staying warm in the cool winter night by the heat of good vibes (and great Mexican food).
Next week, the first installment of 'Movies You Might Have Missed'.
