The shopping tales of two cities happened this past Saturday, August 23, 2014 in Dallas & in Los Angeles! This was a first for us to be in two different cities and to have a pop-up in LA at the very first PETA #VeganFashion Pop-Up event! We’re sure this is the first of many fun weekends and pop-ups though!
Cykochik returned to the Design District Market at the Dallas Contemporary for our second year where local vintage collectors, experimental artists and quirky creators showcased their goods. There were vendors, food trucks and the infamous giant dumpster pool. No kidding, this brought a whole different meaning to “dumpster diving!”
Dallas is our hometown so it’s always a great feeling to be among our fellow Texas-made, Texas-owned brands and meet our fans!
Aaaah Los Angeles, what can we say? Y’all welcomed us with love as big as the state of Texas or California rather, and we loved you right back! We’re so grateful for the special invitation by PETA to be at their very first #VeganFashion Pop-Up and to be among some of the most respected, recognized and cruelty-free brands, like Vaute Couture. It was inspirational to be there!
Oh, and the event was so full of great energy and people, like the many animal loving advocates and fans who swarmed the event and stopped by our booth, including actress Elaine Hendrix and model/actress Hannah Jones. We can’t wait to be back to Los Angeles and wherever PETA invites us! It was that cool.
We held a friendly social media battle between the two cities where we had our fans #cykochik + either #LA or #Dallas to see which city had showed more love & to be included in a fun giveaway of one our mini Vanguard Bots! Los Angeles won as far as love between the two pop-ups but our random winner is @sherryag!
Until next time fans, much love from where it's always a little "cyko" but in the best way possible!
