Originally a one-night gala to raise money for charity, the Little Black Dress event has extended to a full month-long pop-up shop, open to the public beginning Wednesday, September 17 and running through Sunday, October 12. The shop will be set up in a 6,100-square-foot space at 8570 West Sunset Bouelvard, where there will be offerings from retailers and labels such as EM & Co, Apartment 3, Vivienne Westwood, Smoke & Mirrors, LaRok, Jeffrey Sebelia, Pierce Jeans, Eton of Sweden and more.
Orgs benefiting from the pop-up include Elijah Kelley Foundation Fund, The Saban Free Clinic, Junior League and Dress for Success. Luxe environs will be created by florist and botanical artist Krislyn Komarov, along with items for sale; DayNa Decker will create a "fragrance sanctuary" and is offering an exclusive Swarovski crystal Eco-Wood Wick candle (shown above right) for the event, along with its EcoCouture collection. Throughout the month, there will be art exhibits on Wednesdays, fashion film screenings and beauty and salon services on Thursdays, yoga and wine tasting nights on Fridays, and style labs for kids on Saturdays. Pop-up hours are Wed-Sat noon-9pm and Sun noon-4pm.
