More Downtown news for your Monday, this time in the Arts District. Once again, conceptual art and design bazaar Parachute Market returns for its spring installment (and longest lineup yet) this weekend, bringing tons of fashion, furniture, fine art, objects, home goods and more cool wares that explore the interpretation of light as part of this season's "Let There Be Light" theme.
Taking place this Saturday from noon to 7pm and Sunday from noon to 6pm, expect to find vintage treasures from A Current Affair co-founder Richard Wainwright's NEW/FOUND concept pop-up and Tavin boutique, artsy apparel from Ermie, origami-inspired bottoms from LA designer Michelle Durand, one-of-a-kind accessories from Silver Lake studio Brook and Lyn, upcycled clothing from Sam Roberts and many more top local talents. For your home and decor needs, there'll be inspiring dreamcatchers by Sophia Watts, handmade furniture from Doug McCollough (aka the brother of Jack from Proenza Schouler), textiles from Untitled Rug and so much more.
Into it? Get a taste of more vendors at the market's Tumblr here and score your tickets ($8 advance, $10 at the door) online here.
