The six-episode unscripted original series focuses on the doyenne of Hollywood vintage, Doris Raymond, and her Los Angeles store The Way We Wore.

Raymond is prized for her tenacity in finding hidden gems and for her encyclopedic knowledge of designer fashion. The Way We Wore is a destination for Hollywood’s modern-day glitterati as well as high-profile stylists to the stars.

“L.A. Frock Stars” offers an inside look at the quest for the perfect dress. Raymond and her colorful staff, Sarah, Shelly Lyn, Jascmeen and Kyle, assist an endless stream of clients, all with unique needs, from Dita von Teese and Debi Mazar to Linda Ramone and a host of others.

Raymond, an expert in the history of vintage clothing, has been buying and selling vintage clothing for over thirty years. Her boutique sells women’s fashions from the 1900s to the ‘80s, ranging from high profile designers to the world’s most iconic fashion figures such as Versace, Chanel, Halston, Dior and more.
