Got plans this Saturday night? I hope not because if you’re local, you should be at Retro POP! Fashion Show & Art Showcase at the Landmark Ballroom in downtown San Jose.
The event will feature a fashion show highlighting classic looks of the 60’s including go-go, mod, and flowerchild. Styling will be done by local San Jose professionals including Studio Glam, Park Place Vintage, and Time Zone Vintage. Attendees who are inspired by the night’s fashion can purchase their own 60’s threads from local vendors selling throughout the event.
Live musical performances will set the mood with starting with Santa Cruz band The Inciters, followed by 60s reggae band, The Champions. Patrons can sip on champagne and Soju-cocktails through the night while DJ DerekSee spins tunes from the era, and Go Go dancers keep spirits high and people moving.
Eats: Sushi and sweets will be available for purchase
Attire: Hip 60s threads encouraged, all style welcome
Location: Landmark Ballroom, 75 South 11th Street in downtown San Jose
Tickets: $10 at the door, and $8 in advance available now online
