The iconic California-based Chuck’s Vintage has brought classic style to Manhattan with a grand celebration honoring the legacy of the brand.
Invited guests toasted the arrival of Chuck’s Vintage at a private party at Classic Cars of Manhattan. Notable VIP attendees gathered at Pier 76 for a night of old-school fun and modern twists that will mix the time-honored vibes of the brand with edgy New York City fashion tones. There was also a special live entertainment from DJ Lee Kalt and vocalist Xandra K.
The festivities toasted the opening flagship retail outlet, as well as the illustrious career of Chuck’s Vintage founder, Madeline Cammarata. Hailing from a fashion background as a renowned model, Madeline found a powerful niche in the world of denim. Her style sensibilities provided an instrumental foundation for fabric development with powerful brands like 7 For All Mankind.
In 2006, she started Chuck’s Vintage, which overnight became a true American original. Her abundant collection became treasured wear for celebrities and business elites from Steve Jobs to famous musicians such as Dolly Parton, Robert Plant, Morrisey and more. From the famous to just pure classic style lovers, they have all at one point crossed the threshold of Chuck’s Vintage in the California hotspot shop - where even once a world-renowned denim archivist saw fit to entrust Madeline with millions of dollars’ worth of collectible denim that she proudly sold.
Vinnie Cammarata, husband of the Chuck’s Vintage creator who passed from a sudden illness, helped host the party that paid tribute to both Madeline and the iconic business. James DiPrima, who is the business proprietor and Current CEO of GreenStream, was also in attendance.
“This is our way of not only keeping Madeline’s legacy alive, but also growing the brand that she grew from the ground up and made a sensation worldwide,” stated DiPrima in a recent interview with Social Life Magazine. “I and everyone who knew and worked with Madeline want to share her passion and innovation with everyone.”
