First Look at A Current Affair Advertisement
We just finalized the first ever ad for our vintage show and online vintage marketplace, which will be published in the program for the Manhattan Vintage show in two weeks. The ad stars model Sid, whose portrait was recently included in the exhibit California Song by Hedi Slimane at MoCA. You can also see Sid in this video by Slimane. We used Sid for our March show postcard and got an amazing response from everyone about her. The look we chose for the ad is a clash of color, texture, and print that includes a vintage indigenous embroidered Guatemalan serape courtesy of Prism of Threads, and a pair of 1990s floral Dolce and Gabbana jeans from Marie Monsod. The photo was shot by the amazingly talented Christina von Messling and design by The Look Partnership.
