BEVERLY GROVE—We absolutely love the the current, eco-friendly trend of using natural dyes, so we're especially psyched about this Saturday's workshop on the traditional Japanese process "shibori," an indigo tie dye. Hosted by G-Star RAW (7966 Melrose Ave), a premier name in raw denim and guided by FMK, the studio that manages the aforementioned dye process for several brands, the training sessions will take place every 30 minutes between 12-4pm for those who have made appointments (email email@example.com to make yours). The event is complimentary and attendees will be provided all materials including scarves, bandanas, and totes on which to practice their newfound skill.
ORANGE COUNTY—The romantic and playful gowns by bridal designer Haley Paige can be found on the pages of posh bridal mags and featured in top-rated shows like TLC's Say Yes to the Dress. And now brides-to-be and get their own hands on elegantly bohemian styles during a trunk show at Tustin's Blush Bridal Couture (13011 Newport Ave, Suite 111). The weekend-long event kicks off Friday during store hours 10am-5pm (Saturday and Sunday hours are 9:30am-5pm). Make your appointment on the shop's site or by calling 714-573-8000.
