Fashion Shows

RetroPOP!

Giant Creative is always up for something new. With some help from our friends at Studio Glam, Park Place Vintage, Time Zone Vintage, and Black Cat Collective, we were able to put together some incredible shows. RetroPOP! is an homage to the decades featuring live music, vintage fashion, and cocktails. RetroPOP!’s introduction in 2012 was inspired by the 1960s and with finding much success, Giant and friends returned in 2013 for a night dedicated to the 1920s.
