There will be a tea party and sample sale to ring in spring at La China Loca , 385 South 5th St between Hooper and Hewes Streets. How better to bring in the spring season than with some new garments and accessories?
La China Loca, a hat maker with a film-noir edge, is combining forces with contemporary fashion designer Nathalie Kraynina. The two designers, Nathalie and Anastasia Andino of La China Loca, met when they both took part in Williamsburg Fashion Weekend. The weekend fashion event is notorious for showcasing upcoming designers so they thought they would further put their talents together to offer this little seasonal treat for the masses.
Tea, wine, and treats will be served while you check out the two designers’ creative and wearable designs. Nathalie graduated from FIT and was trained by designers Michael Kors and Badgley Mischka. She has been featured as a “Designer To Watch” by Refinery 21 and received epic reviews from Time Out New York, Village Voice and Brooklyn Exposed. La China Loca’s styles reflect fashion from classic westerns, film noir, kung fu and old mobster cinema. Her hats have been worn by Grace Jones, Lady Miss Kier, Madonna and have been featured on NBC’s 30 Rock.
Saturday March 31st, noon to 7 p.m.
