On Sunday, June 10, I will be appearing in a fashion show hosted by the Los Angeles Art Deco Society in the famed Bullocks Wilshire building (3050 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010), a preeminent Los Angeles department store throughout Hollywood's Golden Age. From stunning evening attire for a decadent night on the town to leisurewear for lounging in style on the beach, the show will feature a plethora of vintage fashions worn by ladies and gentlemen of the 1920s-1960s.
There will be a 1 p.m. and a 3 p.m. seating. A docent-led tour of the renowned Bullocks Wilshire Tea Room, the Lobby Floor, and other areas of interest in this spectacular building will follow the fashion show.

Additional information from the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles:
Bullocks Wilshire, completed in 1929 as a luxury department store for owner John G. Bullock, had a department for everything, including formalwear from the Evening Room, resort wear from the Playdeck, and accessories for the pampered pet from the Doggery. Movie stars, such as Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, and Mae West, flocked to Bullocks Wilshire during the Art Deco period---(Mae reportedly had merchandise brought out to her car for inspection and approval). The building is on the National Registry of Historic Places and is Los Angeles Cultural Historic Monument #56. Through the work of preservationists, this incredibly special building is still ours to enjoy!
This is an exclusive opportunity to view the interior of a building that is not normally available to the public.
