This week, I chat with Richard Wainwright. Richard is the co-founder and producer of A Current Affair, a seasonal pop-up vintage show with a community of over 200 exhibitors. Since founding the event in Los Angeles in 2010, he has expanded it to New York and the San Francisco Bay Area and opened the first ever retail outpost, ARCADE in Brooklyn NY. ARCADE features a rotating collection of vintage from the A Current Affair community.
He is also the producer of the Pickwick Vintage Show, which happens four times a year in Burbank, CA, and a consultant for DAPPER DAY Expo, a celebration of style that happens twice a year at Disneyland. In addition to producing trade shows, Richard operates his own by-appointment vintage showroom, NEW/FOUND, out of Downtown Los Angeles, which caters to the design communities and retail customers looking for one-of-a-kind pieces.
