Unique LA hosted a great show this weekend in Los Angeles. Found in December 2008 by LA native designer, writer and community activist Sonya Rasula, it is now the largest independent design & gift show in the country. Â Shoppers have the opportunity to discover great local, independent design while taking part in community and supporting the local economy.
Missed out this weekend? We’ve got you covered as we hand selected some of the best designers and artist featured at the show.
Designer #1 || Sea Pony Couture
This San Francisco based jewelry line caught my eye using recyecled pieces (the pieces below from a chandelier), geometric shapes with an over all antique feel. The long chain earrings reminded me of the tribal feathers trend, but more timeless. Great price points as well, necklaces selling for $25.
DesignerÂ #2 || Pocket Square Clothing
We all love a man with style and if you can pull off a bow tie, you gotta have style! Pocket Square delves into realms of Urban, Vintage, Street, Hip Hop, and Chic. Very much preaching the idea that style transcends beyond materialistic articles of clothing, and past the ideals of fashion, and rather comes down to composure and being; the way one carries himself.

Through a project for work, I came across some photos by the iconic photographer Richard Avedon. Â Already being a huge fan, something struck me even more yesterday. Â After critiquing many photographers work, past and present, there is somethingÂ substantially different about Avedon’s photos that impressed me even more. Each one, standing alone outside of it’s collection, has a way to knock you off your seat. They are dramatic, poetic, simple and dignified, which is why he remains to be remembered as one of the best.
Richard Avedon (May 15, 1923 â€“ October 1, 2004) was an Americn Photographer.Â Â The New York Times said after his death that, “his fashion and portrait photographs helped define America’s image of style, beauty and culture for the last half-century.” (wikipedia)
NYLON + Volcom toasted to Olivia Wilde to celebrate her August Denim Issue Cover at The Mondrian, West Hollywood.
The weather couldn’t have been better as we sipped on complimentary organic vodka under the stars and mingled amongst some amazing talent: these are the times I actually like West Hollywood. It was one of those city nights, fashionably impressed, cheersing Aziz Ansari, that makes you remember why you go out.
Olivia Wilde looked more beautiful than it should be allowed, Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous) happens to be just as adorable as when he played the journalist who fell for Kate Hudson and the Hilton sisters seemed to close the party down, typical.Â A beautiful crowd, everyone was relaxed on the couches around the pool and of course keeping it L.A. proper, with none other thanÂ Kanon Organic Vodka. Other notables included Crystal Castles, Samantha Ronson and designer Jeremy Scott.
