Join us for an exceptional evening at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, created in 1880 by forty prominent Angelinos; sons of pioneers, adventurers and athletes. Meet us at the new bar 'Invention', an homage paid to the inventions of the club members over time that were found in the Club’s archives. Stylishly redesigned by Tracy Beckmann, the private cocktail bar's surroundings and luxuriously appointed furnishings reinforce the traditions and history which have made the Club such an enduring landmark in the City of Angels. With an expertly crafted cocktails list and a decadent menu of gourmet bites, this space will transport you back into the private-club tradition.
During this unique soiree, models will be strolling in a mid-century style fashion show. Produced by Dave Temple of Clever Vintage Clothing, downtown LA's renown suppliers of the most sought after vintage products to the entertainment industry (including Madmen TV show), innovative fashions from mid-century America will be presented. The 1950s were a high point in design led by the United States. Rediscover the daytime and evening looks that helped make the US the home to fashion innovators. Athletic outfits will also be included. These rare outstanding vintage fashion pieces from the 1950's and 1960's will be available for sale.
Artography, representing some of the most exclusive and iconic photography of entertainment and cultural legends from the past six decades, will proudly showcase the remarkable and rarely seen Frank Worth Collection deemed by Christie’s of London as “the most extraordinary collection of its kind to be discovered in the past fifty years.” A dozen of their most popular images will be exhibited and available for sale during a silent auction.. including rarely seen candid photos of James Dean, Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and others in the prime of their lives circa 1955! These gallery framed archival reproductions will surely go fast, so please be certain to place your bid early upon arrival! exhibition preview here
