Peacock feathers, vintage lace, chunky beads and original artwork fill this retro-hip girlie fashion Mecca..
In 2000, when painter Kime Buzzelli opened her art and fashion shop under her apartment, Echo Park was considered kind of scary. But it didn't take long for celebrity stylists to smell out something special in the feathered, beaded, one-of-a-kind gowns and jewelry pieces inspired by fabulous Laurel Canyon hippie chicks, sophisticated flappers and gypsy fortune tellers. A spring 2008 redesign swapped the circus tent clutter of the old store for a minimal elegance, with black beaded chandeliers and hanging pink paper sculptures. Favorite gauzy dress designer Annakim Violette and feather headdress crafter Laura Kranitz are featured, alongside South Paradiso Leather Company's inlaid leather wallets and disco diva-painted jackets, Jenny Dayco's funky necklaces and Emily Katz' hand-painted raw silk tunics.
