LOS FELIZ—It’s time for another block party on Hillhurst. Grab a friend (and a coat) and check out the 1900 block, between Franklin and Finley. Many of the participating retail spaces, like Panty Raid, Vamp Shoes, and Undesigned: Carol Young will offer discounts, and Silver Lake Wine will keep you sauced up. Friday, November 6, from 7pm to 10pm. [Racked Inbox]
ECHO PARK—The curators and creators of this event call it "couture for the deceased," but we call Tropico de Nopal Gallery's Calavera Fashion Show and Walking Altars "amazing." It's an celebration that blends fashion, art, music, theater, and some of the best people watching you can imagine. For this year's show, participating artists and designers created work that honors the people or social causes close to their hearts. Twenty artists, including Abel Alejandre, Cici Segura Gonzalez and Stephanie Mercado Reyes, will display, perform, or wear their work. This event is always wildly popular, and crowded, which is why we're posting the info a couple days in advance. It's November 7 at 7pm, with an afterparty at 11pm. 1665 Beverly Blvd. (213-481-8112) [Racked Inbox]
