DOWNTOWN—Amy Critchett is a gal with quite a pedigree. Besides being some of the brainpower behind Wired Magazine, the Oxygen Network, and Survival Research Laboratories, she's one of the founders of Revigor, a demi-couture company that does customized upcycling. To celebrate Earth Day, Amy's bringing this ingenious idea, and the pretty fruits of her labor, to LA for a trunk show. You'll need to bring some recyclable clothing and anywhere from $188 (for scarves) to $488 (kimonos). It's Thursday night, from 7pm to 9pm.RSVP at 213-840-0077Orpheum Lofts, 846 S.
