Do you jump at the chance to support hometown designers and ethically-made merch at any opportunity? So do the fashionable folks (both two-legged and four-legged) over at brand incubator and showroom FactoryLA, which is why you'll want to make your way to their Downtown digs this Thursday for their first-ever #MadeinLA Designer Collective showcase.
From 6:30pm to 9:30pm, discover and shop the wares of 25 LA-based designers, including edgy-meets-sporty fave In My Air (seen above on recently-crowned face of #MadeinLA Joy Green), boho chic accessories line Jakimac, vintage-inspired designer Trisha Jane, premium men's denim label Norman Russell and more at the 4,000-square-foot space.
Plus, shoppers can enjoy organic cotton candy from Bon Puf and free drinks to the beat of live music, then get primped with free hair and makeup touch-ups by Powder Room LA. After you're camera-ready, get your stylish self snapped at the event's photo booth. (Major props if you can get shop mascot Blu in on it.)
