LA's Made-in-'Merica movement is killing it these days. Giving us another reason to love our country is The MiA Project, which pushes "thoughtful consumption" by showcasing top-notch design, fashion and art—all crafted right here in the U.S. Natch, they're setting up shop at cool concept marketplace Shelter Half for an eight-day pop-up titled "Equilux" featuring top-notch wares boasting "feminine energy." (We're into it.)
Holding court from Saturday, October 12th to Monday, October 21st, the shop-in-shop will stock clothing, accessories, apothecary and beauty lines, home goods and tons more from indie designers both local and from around the nation. Expect LA brands like denim label THVM, beach basics line Sundry, Cali cool clothing line Me and Arrow, upcycled handbag label Specialty Dry Goods and plenty of others.
Into it? Head to Shelter Half tomorrow from 12pm to 3pm for The MiA Project's kick-off bash. Partygoers can enjoy sips by Drink Botany, florals by Tigers to Lillies, typewriter stories by Franki Elliot (sounds awesome, no?) and of course, plenty of shopping American-made wares.
