Pre-Loved Podcast: Ronnie of RetroBlades
Today’s show is with Ronnie of RetroBlades! Ronnie has been a long time avid lover and collector of vintage since she was young, but her collection really began to grow when she became a wardrobe stylist in the entertainment industry.
She worked as a wardrobe stylist for over 25 years, specializing in vintage style and aesthetics. Her clients would often purchase vintage from her, and she always dreamed of owning a vintage store in LA one day. In 2017, she started RetroBlades – getting her start selling at vintage markets like Rose Bowl, A Current Affair, and Pickwick. Most recently, she opened her store, Archive Atelier in Free Market in Playa Vista. It’s a high end vintage shop where Ronnie sells her vintage, and features other vintage dealers as well.
In this episode, Ronnie and I chat about her history with fashion, working as a wardrobe stylist, starting her vintage business, super special vintage pieces, and so much more!
I’m so excited for you to hear this one, so let’s dive right into the show!
