EVENT: Echo Park Craft Fair

It was such a pleasure hosting our first Echo Park Craft Fair, which broke a studio record: more than 1500 people came through the Stage 1 door over course of two days! We’d like to thank each and every one of the incredible local artists who participated and their loyal community of supporters who came by to check it out.

EVENT: Nasty or Nice Holiday Party

On Friday December 13th a hip crowd of 500 Nasty Gal employees and friends toasted to the holidays with an end-of-year event produced by Mack Sennett Studios. A 5 ft wide disco ball hung over the crowd as partygoers danced around a 20 ft tall Christmas tree to the sounds of DJ Myles Hendrick. Guests also took pictures in a custom #nastyornice photobooth and enjoyed a midnight surprise when snow fell from the rafters in Stage 1. See more behind the scenes pictures from the event on the Nasty Gal Blog.

EVENT: The Echo Society

Last night, The Echo Society performed their very first show, “Winter”, in front of a captive audience of close to 400 privately invited guests on Stage 1 of our studio. The epic evening was full of innovative music from a 10 piece chamber orchestra that mixed classical composition with modern electronics set to moving visuals that ignited roaring applause from every seat in the house. We hope to be hosting The Echo Society’s next performance, and encourage everyone to make a point to see this one of a kind show.
