All the news you need to know (once you're done drooling over Rosie).
In our sixth episode of Haute Cuisine we went to the land of sunshine, palm trees, and juice bars--Los Angeles!--to get together with our friend, Christos Garkinos. If you didn't know already, Garkinos is co-owner of the legendary Decades consignment boutique and also the star of the Bravo's new show Dukes of Melrose. Watch as we cook up some mouth-watering Greek treats like spanakopita and some juicy lamb chops while talking about all things LA, reality shows, and fashion! Tasty--trust us!
We took a short hiatus during fashion month but we are back with a new episode of Haute Cuisine! This time we traveled to a far and exotic land--Hollywood--to cook alongside the "Robin Hood of Fashion" himself, Christos Garkinos. The co-owner of the legendary consignment boutique Decades, Garkinos also stars in the new hit show Dukes of Melrose on Bravo. Watch as we get Greek with a mouthwatering three course meal courtesy of Mother Garkinos's recipe book and talk fashion, shriveled cucumbers, reality stars... you know, all things LA!
It’s summer and that means on Fridays everyone should be sneaking out of work a little bit early to go on a weekend jaunt or grab a drink on a sunny r
As if vintage YSL items weren't sought after enough already, the brand's recent overhaul is about to make them all the more covetable. According to Christos Garkinos, co-owner of famed vintage boutique Decades, whenever a brand hires a new creative director, there is a sense of a new era beginning, and "the prior designer's pieces become more collectible." Add to that the fact that the new designer will be completely overhauling the brand's image and logo, and you've got a recipe for a seriously collectible--and therefore more valuable--vintage market.
Almost exactly a year ago, Bravo announced plans to debut a reality show centered around the owners of L.A. vintage fashion mecca Decades. We were so excited, but then it never materialized--until now. Included in Bravo's new list of greenlit shows for next season, is "Decades (working title)" in which "Renowned boutique owners, Christos Garkinos and Cameron Silver, show off their exclusive and glamorous world of vintage couture filled with Givenchy, Balenciaga and Chanel." We wanted to find out a little more about the forthcoming series, so we spoke with Garkinos, who's been filming the show along with his business partner, Decades founder Cameron Silver, about what to expect and why their show will be different from all those other fashion reality shows.

From The Rachel Zoe Project to Upper East Side apartments brimming with Chanel, DecadesTwo co-owner Christos Garkinos will go anywhere for fashion. Even the internet. For years DecadesTwo has been an elusive myth to fashionistas living outside LA, but now you can get your DecadesTwo fix from anywhere in the world with their newly launched online shop, DecadesTwo.1. A treasure trove of all things consigned, Decadestwo.1 will satisfy every desire. You can search by designer (Chanel, Dior, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Marni, Balenciaga, etc.,), by style, and by closet. While most of DecadesTwo.1's consignors are kept secret with a number instead of a name, their wardrobes are still presented as a whole unit, meaning you can receive updates when Consignor 007's goods go up on the site. They do however, occasionally reveal their consignors (Houston socialite Becca Cason Thrash is Consignor #815) or release juicy tidbits about their lives, like how consignor 2842 is the wife of a very influential Hollywood producer.
