The First Annual Kulture Recycling & Vintage Clothing World Gathering 2010 “Inspiration” へ

Last week Friday at Santa Monica Airport in the Barker Hanger, I was invited as a guest to The First Annual Kulture Recycling & Vintage Clothing World Gathering 2010 event subtitled “Inspiration,” put together and organized by the publisher of the very popular photo-book “My Freedamn” otherwise known as photographer Rintaro Tanaka.

Just as his photobooks illustrate and fixate on, it was a first event of its kind with a mixture of Japanese-American shops.

The event was packed with single obsessed collectors to crowds of curious people.

With this event, it is clearly visible how in this subculture or niche industry, Japan plays a big role to USA.

Hanger で開催するなんて素敵でした!
To hold an event in an aircraft hanger, that’s fantastic!
I want to try that!

PS: 以前 Santa Monica.に住んでいましたがSanta Monica Airportへ行ったのは今回初めてでした。
PS: I’ve lived in Santa Monica for a while now but this was the first time I went to Santa Monica Airport.
