944 party

Last night i hit up LOFT 7 for a downtown shindig. Ok so perhaps the 944 issue release party wasn't a shindig.. more like a huge party with amazing catering from Yxta (dates wrapped in bacon anyone?). What's that you are thinking?? Liquor? Well, 944 never disappoints in that category. This time it was Tres Generaciones Tequila. Too bad I'm allergic, but the colors of the drinks were intoxicating enough for me.
The August nightlife Issue celebration didn't let anyone down. Besides the wonderfully dressed people on every corner ( my favorite part), there were "T-shirt" makers on stand by. You got one plain, Future Heretics white tee ( soft like a cloud) and got to pick three designs to be printed as you demand, right in front of you. IT doesn't matter that I spend the whole night standing in line for it, at the end of the evening I walked out with a graphic T-shirt that had naked women taking shots. Ahhhh, gotta love Hollywood. Oh, lets not forget the Polite in Public photo booth, that seems to be at any major LA event. Let's just say everyone got a chance to make sure they will remember this night for many days to come..

Clothing for Modern Times

On Friday I went to a superb penthouse.. a fashion house if you may. CMT-Clothing for Modern Times, has launched an impressive studio. What might seem a beat down warehouse by the 10 freeway, is actually a gem for the fashionistas and those a like. Once I got there and took a "loft-y", huge elevator up to the 4th floor, I instantly forgot that I sat in traffic for 2 hours to get there.
Not surprisingly, five brands- Urban Behavior, Costa Blanca, Costa Blanca X, Delicious and Naked Blue overwhelmed me with samples of their newest collections. I couldn't help but to ask if I could place an order for some single items.
The beautiful 30,000 square feet penthouse is the perfect space for some creativity. Opened in 2008, by owner Arif Noor, it has great potential to have some everyday visitors (uhm, me). After all this is were it all happens- the process from inspirational ideas to fabric selections...
