Party Pick of the Week: Dripped
Photo by Lina Lecaro
Everyone looks to New York and Paris runways for fashion design and trends, but in L.A. the streets and the clubs provide a different, more raging kind of runway. Creativity, bold color statements and the high-low mix of designer and cheap-chic were perfected here, usually after dark, and this energy could never be captured on a solitary catwalk.
That’s where Dripped comes in. Stylemonger/promoter GGeisha throws the bash during Fashion Week L.A., bringing together underground designers, DJs, bloggers and party monsters for a dynamic event where anything can happen.
This time around, Astonish magazine joins the fun along with hosts Lucas Logan, Phyllis Navidad (A Club Called Rhonda), Luna Lovebad, The Fabulous Stains and Brookelyn, with DJs and live music from Brian Whatever, Chippy Nonstop, Miss Glitter, Corey Biggs, Tamara Sky, Brrrang-a-Dang (Ham On Everything), War Toys, Danke and All Hail Noir.
Cool vendors galore — Iron Fist, Widow, Lip Service, Whatever 21 and many more — will set up shop outside.
