Le Vintage Dress – Yana Handbags – Collage Garage Fall Trunk Show {Culture Fix, NYC}

Oh, what power Instagram and a few well-chosen hashtags can wield! Thanks to this social media tag-team, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Kathy Osborne, owner of the fabulous Le Vintage Dress. Photographing the trunk show she helped host this past weekend at Culture Fix on the Lower East Side was another perk :)

In conjunction with Yana Handbags, Collage Garage, and By the People, the show brought out a great crowd on a beautiful Sunday afternoon…

I nearly died when I saw this fur wrap hanging front and center when I walked in to the back gallery space! There’s something so comforting in the plush softness that will never get old for me.

Upstairs, artist Katy Hirschfield was setting up her beautiful collages. I love mixed-media art and her pieces have such a personal feel blending with the grunge/punk influences. Very “femme-fatale” she likes to say…

Yana handbags have been featured in Marie Claire, Essence and Nylon magazine as well as on celebrities Estelle and Stacey McKenzie. I love the clutches with the chain detailing and the leather turbans were a huge hit with everyone who came by!

Samantha Davis from Sammy Davis Vintage stopped by to chat, take a few videos for her blog and even try on a few things! She has such a fresh style and so sweet!
