It's hard to believe it, but there are only two more events to go before we officially bid adieu to Hester Street Fair's LA summer festival. Following their debut daytime bash and evening shopping soirée, their Indie Design Market is set for August 18th.
To pump the community up for the main event, HSF has teamed up with Space 15Twenty and Urban Outfitters to host a free preview party—and it all goes down tomorrow, August 11th from 11am to 6pm. HSF tells us that not only will guests have the opportunity to sneak a peak at the market's latest goods, but they'll also be able to make advanced purchases on them before they're unveiled to the public.
Designers like Mctega (founded by two former Rodarte interns; we dig their astro-bright baubles), Bleeker Street Vintage (retro fashion heaven), Mome Rath Garden (unique illustrated stationary) and 31 Bits (handmade jewelry by women in Uganda) will all be in the house, so swing by.
