Tonight is the opening night party for L.A. FASHION BLOOM, a project I’ve been plotting for months now and has finally been realized. For the past week, some brilliant collaborators and I have been transforming Taylor De Cordoba into a fashion boutique, which will exist for one month. We open to the public tomorrow but I am extending the invite for tonight’s private opening night reception to my blog readers. If you plan on attending, leave your RSVP in the comments or shoot me a quick email. See invite below (click to enlarge).


Public Dates: Friday, July 10 – Saturday, August 8

Taylor De Cordoba is pleased to present L.A. FASHION BLOOM, a temporary fashion boutique installed in a contemporary art gallery setting. In lieu of a traditional “summer group show,” gallery co-owner Heather Taylor has curated a selection of artfully installed pieces by five Los Angeles-based fashion designers:

Melissa Coker of Wren – clothing designer
Annie Costello Brown – jewelry designer
Jesse Kamm – clothing designer
Gregory Parkinson – clothing designer
Clare Vivier – handbag and accessory designer

All items will be available for purchase and a portion of proceeds will be donated to P.S. Arts, a local organization dedicated to restoring arts education in public schools. The designers will be featuring pieces from previous seasons in addition to debuting new fall items.

Some of L.A.’s most sought after design talent will transform the space from gallery into boutique. Local artist and Reorganica designer, Tony Brown, has created reclaimed wood store fixtures. Vintage lighting and accessories are courtesy Empric with floral landscaping designed by Holly Flora. L.A. FASHION BLOOM will exist for one month.
