A Night at Studio 54
In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Studio 54 was the place to be seen. The hottest celebrities and socialites frequented the Manhattan discothèque while local hopefuls and tourists waited outside in long lines, praying the bouncer would deem them worthy and good-looking enough to get behind the infamous velvet rope.
The elusive nightclub was known for its anything-goes atmosphere, but the fashion is what has made a lasting impression. Feathery hair, sparkles and luxurious furs...it doesn’t get more glamorous than a night at Studio 54.
Inspired by the fun and decadence of the 70s era, we visited Kynard Korner’s booths at Eastbrook Flea Market. All the clothing pieces we featured are authentically vintage. The girls at Seville Salon curled, fluffed and primped our models’ hair until they channeled the move-star glam look. Rebekah Edwards of Dougs 2 Salon-Spa/LUSH Makeup Art perfected the glittery, glossy and shimmery makeup looks of the disco age. Davis Theatre and Club 50/50 provided the right setting for our photo shoot, and Ed Crowell’s 1969 Pontiac GTO “Judge” Ram Air IV was the perfect touch. And Michael Carson's photography skills captured it all. But the fun didn't end there...
This New Year’s Eve, we’re getting down downtown as we transform the Capital City Club into Studio 54. Hosted by RSVP and the Capital City Club, this 70s inspired casino party will be a don’t-miss event. Last year’s holiday party was a sell-out, so do the hustle and get your tickets early. Wear vintage and plan for the party of the year. Ring in the New Year with a bang! Gamble, toast and shake your groove thang! Can you dig it?
