WEST HOLLYWOOD—Just like you, our invite to Vogue's 3.1 Philip Lim boutique party must have gotten lost in the mail. Weird! But that doesn't matter—we can still sing "Happy Birthday to Your Boutique" to the man himself this Saturday, when he's going to be hanging out in the one-year-old shop (631 N Robertson Blvd.). From noon to 3pm, the designer will be helping shoppers navigate his Fall '09 collection, with proceeds going to children's charity Art of Elysium. The first 100 early birds will get a tote filled with Nars and Frederic Fekkai goodies, not to mention a little extra time to press Lim for gossip on Rachel Bilson (or the inspiration behind his fall collection—which we're sure is a lot more interesting).
ANGELENO HEIGHTS—Also on Saturday, Rowena Sartin's Kristin Dickson is unveiling the second installation for her hybrid art and design space, Iko Iko (1298 W. Sunset Boulevard). Following the first installment, which focused on self-portraits, Dickson's newest installation is titled "CLASS, ORDER, FAMILY, GENUS, SPECIES," and includes many of the same designers as before, like Warbonnet, Hannah Keefe, and, naturally, Rowena Sartin. Get there by 8pm for a dance performance! [RackedWire]
