Spring is upon us, and the world is awakening again. This means, new designs, upcoming craft fairs, and plenty of activities to join and share. Most importantly, ITtERATIONS WORKWEAR will be at the next Unique LA craft fair. Unique LA features locally designed and produced artisanal wares. It was started by a Los Angeles graphic designer turned entrepreneur, Sonja Rasula. She's grown the company State of Unique to include craft fairs in New York, and San Francisco as well. It's a great feeling to be part of a national community that focuses on local. The last Unique LA was a blast, and I hope to see you at the next one. Fact: nearly 23,000 people came to shop the event last December.

Have you seen new fashion blog the Breathless? It's written by young LA native, Lauren Garroni. She's a bit mysterious when it comes to self description, but I can tell you, she has a developed eye for fashion, and a strong opinion - two things people in the industry appreciate when it comes to expertise. She shares her dry humor, and insider views sparingly, two more things to love. And did I mention she was nice enough to profile ITtERATIONS WORKWEAR Studio?

Arts Festival Benefit, Saturday
Daylight hours in spring should be filled with beautiful activities enriching your mind and body, wouldn't you say? This Saturday, 27 April, local dance companyMashUp is hosting a dance concert in Griffith Park to raise funds for arts in education, and the Girls Scouts of America. Featuring a performance by the all women contemporary dance company, as well as local magazines, artists, food, and raffle.

Friend and artisitic director of MashUp, Sarah Rhodenhouse has poured her creativity into this performance, and it shows. Click the links above for performance location and more info on the company.
Have you been an Assistant?
I met friend and writer Lydia Whitlock through Whitney Bickers, owner of Myrtle boutique. Lydia was a hollywood assistant for four years... until the day she got me hired to film a jeep commercial. Yes, that's right. The same day we shot the commercial, she was fired by her very jealous hollywood boss. Why? because she had become more successful than him! Isn't that a Hollywood story? First her blog became an underground sensation, then she got a book deal, then the book was turned into a TV pilot, and then she was fired from the job that inspired it all. Please support her new career as a freelance writer by clicking the link above!
