ECHO PARK: Astute readers may have noticed that Echo Park's Taxi CDC boutique (2146 Sunset Blvd) has gone dark for the last few months, but it's now officially back in business. Turns out they just closed down for a makeover, which we're told has resulted in "wooden floors, high ceilings, and industrial-looking racks". In case you're unfamiliar, the brand was one of the first in town to spark the remastered vintage trend, and to celebrate the relaunch, founder Deborah Brosenne (formerly of Triple 5 Soul) has introduced new styles like recycled Members Only jackets and traditional Mexican emboridered tops. If Fashion's Night Out isn't your thing, join the gang for their Grand Re-Opening party tomorrow night from 7pm-10pm—a group art show will mark the occasion. [RackedWire]
SANTA MONICA: A last-minute addition to the Fashion's Night Out roster, LA-based womenswear label Trash and Luxury will be launching a pop-up shop tomorrow night at Fred Segal Flair (500 Broadway). From 4pm-7pm (early!), the line's designer will be meeting and greeting to the tunes of LLCOOLGEE (best known for his hit single "Momma Said Knock You Up"—ba-dum ching). Plus, there will be a free gift with any purchase of $75 or up, one of the lowest free-gift thresholds of the night, by our estimates. [RackedWire]
