LA Vintage Fashion Expo – Living La Vida Vintage!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Saturday I had the opportunity to attend the LA Vintage Fashion Expo for the first time at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. I had no idea what I was in store for, but I fell in love with vintage items at every turn!  From Versace to Gucci to everything in between, there was something for everyone including men!  I tried on a few pieces I liked, such as a 1970’s yellow dress that was Halston inspired, and a Royal Hawaiian tiki dress.  My taste is definitely rich when it comes to vintage, as I was drawn to the most expensive pieces!  Garments were well preserved and ready to sell, but I think I would just have a display case for show and tell.  Attendees also channeled the vintage area, some dressed from head to toe as their everyday style, and others kicking it up a notch to feel in the spirit.  Either way, it was a wonderful time for all and I can’t wait to attend the next show and live la vida vintage!

About Orenthal Goff

Orenthal Goff was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on September 8, early one autumn morning. He has been entertaining for most of his life young life. He moved to Los Angeles at the tender age of seventeen alone with sixty dollars and two suitcases quickly finding work in the film industry and singing demos for fun. Fun lead to work as the demo’s turned into records for different producers. Writing hooks and melodies is something that flows like water from him. Playing the guitar is his new found baby. Music and singing has always been a huge part of his life being raised in the church next to his Grandmother Virginia and having his ear tuned in to Casey Kasem Top Forty lead him to the world of pop music.

Training with San Francisco’s Razz Kennedy introduced a new sound to his already tenor soulful voice. Indiana gave him the musical roots of The Police, Diana Ross, Patti Labelle, Kiss, Duran Duran, Natalie Cole, Madonna, Janet and Michael Jackson and many others. California gave him the musical roots of Oingo Biongo, The Cure, Niki Haris, Kenny Chesney, Yazz, Mazzy Star, Lenny Kravitz, Bork, Kinky and the list goes on. His recognizable face as been the spokesman for Miller Genuine Draft, Lens Crafters Eye Wear and MTV to mention a few. His passion for performing has lead him to some of L A’s most known stages. His art for giving dance tracks a certain flavor has allowed him to record with a slew of talented producers. “Arena” is where he made his debut singing an original house track with DJ Fabian and a troop of dancers. This is where his fans begin to take notice and from there it’s been a whirlwind of creativity, music, spirituality, sexuality, and Self Love. Out of the ashes rises “The Rooster” ready to waken the world from sleeping!
