Spring Arts Springs Up
With Beverly Hills Fashion Week stalling its debut until October, downtown booster Brady Westwater presses the Spring Arts Tower into service. (If we’re not mistaken, this was the site of the P Ka Bu fashion shows circa 2004.) The building, which opened in 1914, is home to a freshly refinished 8,000 square foot space with 20′ high ceilings. The space is the former home of Citizen’s Bank, and features Art Deco details. The Crocker Club, a bar/lounge on the main level of the building, is open evenings Wednesday through Sunday, and Cafe 9 on the 9th floor is open weekdays for breakfast and lunch. Apparel companies are invited to visit the space by making an appointment with Brady Westwater at firstname.lastname@example.org or 213.804.8396. Designer/producer Mike Vensel and others are expected to jump in to help the fashion community with production. It’s less than a month to showtime and this venue, just like at BOXeight, is still developing its designer roster.
