ACA_LizGoldwyn_VintageOlegCassini_SirenVintage Filmmaker, author and vintage junkie Liz Goldwyn has stepped up to host the second go-round of A Current Affair: Pop-Up Vintage Marketplace, a multi-vendor vintage shopping event, to take place this Friday and Saturday at downtown's Cooper Design Space.
Bringing together over 25 vintage retailers and private dealers from Los Angeles and beyond, the marketplace specializes in vintage apparel, jewelry, accessories, eyewear and ephemera from brands including Azzedine Alaïa, Balmain, Chanel, Comme des Garcons, Givenchy, Gucci, Issey Miyake, Halston, Oleg Cassini, Lanvin and Yves Saint Laurent.
This time around, Goldwyn will curate her very own installation of her 10 favorite looks from the show — available for purchase. And at a cocktail preview of the show on Friday night, she will  sign copies of her book, "Pretty Things: The Last Generation of American Burlesque Queens," which just launched in paperback.
The two-day pop-up was created by Joey Grana of Scout and private vintage dealer Richard Wainwright. Southern California-based vendors include Beau + Aero, Frecklebug Vintage, Martin Atelier, Wainwright, Scout, Sielian’s Vintage Apparel, Siren Vintage and Weltenbuerger.

The opening preview and party will take place on Friday from 6 to 10 p.m., with the show continuing Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10. Cooper Design Space, 860 S. Los Angeles St., 11th Floor, Los Angeles.
