Real quote: “Helen Keller could have picked a better gown."
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!
Is there a better chronicler of fashion history and all-around-beloved fashion personality than Cameron Silver? As the new star of Bravo’s Dukes of Melrose, Silver, the man most credited with making it cool to wear old clothes and co-owner of Los Angeles vintage emporium Decades, now has the adulation of a nationwide and global audience. At a Vidal Sassoon Pro Series event last week, Silver exhibited his usual charm as we talked about vintage history, how more informed consumers have affected his business, and which modern designers he sees as having vintage appeal.
