CHARLES PROFILED IN THE L.A. WEEKLY

Story and pictures by Jena Ardell
While Angelenos were getting pummeled with rain on Friday, attendees of Palm Springs Modernism Week were enjoying sunshine and chrome at the Vintage Travel Trailer Show before heading to Charles Phoenix’s Retro Vacation Slide Show Tour of the U.S.A.
Yes, it was the perfect day to mosey through Keith McCormicks’s Collector Car Show or browse the Braniff Airline Exhibit, which featured vintage airline advertising and a collection of 14 vintage uniforms, most designed by Pucci and Halston.
The real fun, however, would come later in the evening, in the Riviera’s swanky Grand Ballroom with Charles Phoenix’s slideshow in full swing.
