Britt's in LA this week (though heading back to us on the red-eye tonight), but if you'll be in SoCal for the rest of the summer, circle August 20th on your calendars. Downtown LA has a monthly Art Walk, which has shot energy and sales into the downtown gallery and art scene, and now the Los Angeles fash community is gearing up to throw a party with a Downtown Fashion Walk, where a selection of stores will be staying open late and hosting special events. We're jealous that we won't be around, but happy that our west coast friends get to experience something like Fashion's Night Out, because why should us New Yorkers have all the fashion fun?
The list of participants is still growing, but the festivities will take place in the blocks bordered by 4th, 7th, Broadway and Main Streets. Planner Brady Westwater promises a mix of some of your favorite boutiques as well the quirky and the offbeat. We'll let you know more when we do. It will take place the same night as the Broadway Walk, which focuses on performing and visual arts, so you can participate in both. Good times. --AMANDA JEAN BOYLE
