L.A. stuff

Posted in DE stuff,events by verbalcroquis on April 11, 2007

I’m a stupid, frazzled mess right now, prepping for L.A. Returning phone calls and emails, packing, researching fabrics, wondering how all of a sudden I have almost 30,000 views on my Iqons page (gotta be a bug–no way am I more popular than Susie Bubble), networking, attending a lecture on production, thinking “I need to blog this thingie and that thingie”.

First up, Monday evening. For those of you in L.A. or heading to L.A. next week for the textile show, there will be cocktail hour at the CalMart on Monday, April 16. It starts at 5pm, and a bunch of Fashion Incubator peeps, including yours truly, will meet up in front of the bookstore in the beginning.

EDIT:

Just heard yesterday that they may not be having a cocktail reception like they used to at the fabric show on Mondays. Karen Mamont used to run the show there and it was always fun, but she has now moved on to something else. So…there is a real kitschy bar called the Golden Gopher (www.goldengopherbar.com; http://www.la.com/nightlifeandmusic/5661581.html) that is not far from the Mart (about 3 blocks). I’m going to post about this on FI/Connections. Still going to meet in front of the book store at 5, and then will start walking over to the GG at 5:15.

Next up, the Fashion Consulting Co-Op, run by a regular VC reader/fellow Otis alum/new friend, a full service consulting company for the apparel industry, is hosting wine and desserts.

  • Tuesday, April 17th, 5-6:30pm
  • the FBI Resource Center in the New Mart (across the street from the CalMart) address: 127 E. 9th St. Suite 212 Los Angeles, CA 90015
  • RSVP to fashionconsultingcoop at gmail dot com or 213-747-5248
  • sponsored by the FBI (Fashion Business Inc.) and the Little Penguin

I’m really excited about both events and I hope to see/meet some of you there! (*looks straight at SRR*)

    Thanks for the info, Zoe! Perfect timing, too. I get out of class at 5:10, so barring any extended discussions, I should be able to make my way there soon after.

    Yeah that Iqons thing has to be a bug, I got a few hundred thousand the other day. Pfft. Back to normal though. Have you got a Fashionising page now?

    OK, I don’t want to be a pain, but since my office is across the street from the Calmart where the Textile Show is being held I’d like to make a suggestion (since I’m very familiar with the area).

    I am suggesting the Broadway Bar (http://losangeles.citysearch.com/profile/41719383/los_angeles_ca/broadway_bar.html). It’s run by the same people as the Golden Gopher, it’s larger, and more importantly a block away from the Calmart. It’s a little sketch a night downtown. Just a suggestion.

    Also, please save some drinking room in your bodies for Tuesday night at the FCC Cocktail party!
