Following the success of LA-based Popomomo, Lizz Wasserman has transformed vintage and deadstock fabrics into contemporary designs under the label CURATORIAL. Lizz hand picks the vintage fabrics--that follow suit with season trends in patterns and color--and designs one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces at lower price points.

CURATORIAL by Popomomo is the perfect combination of past and present; utilizing existing vintage fabrics for forward looking designs. Designer Lizz Wasserman speaks to the fabric used in the collection, below.

We use fabrics that are vintage (found from collectors, yard sales, etc), discontinued and unsold deadstock fabrics--in many cases fabric producers can't move these fabrics and they are thrown away--and liability fabrics (if a company produces twice as much fabric as they need for a style, the leftover fabric is called liability). I find these fabrics through small collectors and some larger companies. It is really fun to always be on the lookout for great vintage fabric.
