Downtown Fashion Walk -- now with a larger shopping radius
We told you earlier to mark your calendars for the new monthly Downtown Fashion Walk, which starts Thursday and runs from 5:30 to 10 p.m. on the increasingly fashionable streets of the historic core neighborhood. Thirty (at this count) boutiques and fashion-related businesses on Spring and Main streets will open their doors that evening, and the walk – apparently gaining momentum -- has expanded by a couple of blocks, now stretching from 4th Street to 7th Street. Participating designers include Fremont, Skin Graft, Elmer Ave, Soulful Commandoe plus boutiques M’ouments, Blends, Engels and the Ed Hardy Outlet.
DeepGlamour.net still plans a hat show for that evening between 6 and 10 p.m., but has changed the venue from the Farmers and Merchants Building to the Spring Arts Tower (201 W. 5th St.). The event will feature chapeaux by Stella Dottir, Louise Green and Arturo Rios and a book signing by "Project Runway’s" Andrae Gonzalo and Kate Hahn. Those wearing a hat are eligible for a door prize.
Spring and Main streets between 4th and 7th streets, Los Angeles. 5:30 to 10 p.m. www.downtownfashionwalk.com
