On Sunday, October 13th musicians, DJs, designers, and dancers came together to put together the Vintage Fashion Party at H0LO in Ridgewood, Queens. Braving a compromising time slot (11pm-4am) performers, designers, and partygoers came out and created a unique scene occupied by creatives from all different mediums (film, music, writing, art, dance, etc) to make the most of the night on the eve of the dreaded quasi holiday Columbus Day, now known as Indigenous Peoples Day in NYC and other cities.
POPIC helped cultivate the atmosphere in H0LO before and during the show, elevating the venue into the next level of immersion and interaction. POPIC performers patrolled the venue, distributing free champagne, PB&J sandwiches, ring pops, and dancing to keep morale high throughout the night! Designers from the fashion brands TGT and YNDY stocked the venue with clothing racks for anyone who needed to cop a change of wardrobe mid show or simply needed to add to their present lineup of vintage wear.
DJs JADALAREIGN, FAB ROC, and Tokio Blond kept the crowd groovin, leading up to and in between sets from rappers CGodTheDon, Tre Yung aka Donnie Durag, as well as the R&B group SVNT980.
