Time is of the essence this season, as we spring ahead to more daylight. Chase that extra hour of sun with your best bohemian-chic styles, as warmer climates welcome some must-see music festivals. Feel free to don your best floral duds and host your own garden party to celebrate the season in style. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead on the second Sunday in March to make sure your social calendar is set for Monday morning.
IT’S YOUR LUCKY DAY
Whether you’re serving shamrock shakes at your own party or attending a friend’s event, it’s time for people everywhere to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Angelinos can enjoy some traditional Irish grub and Gaelic music at the Hollywood St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival or do the jig at the Shamrock ‘N’ Roll in Long Beach and the 11th Annual Irish Fair and Music Festival in Pomona. Whatever your fancy, it’s the perfect time to GO GREEN.
The Paley Center for Media honors television’s top talent at the 32nd Annual PaleyFest, where the stars descend on the Dolby Theatre for an in-depth look at some fan-favorites, including Showtime’s “Homeland,” HBO’s “Girls,” The CW’s “Jane The Virgin,” FOX’s “Glee,” ABC’S “Modern Family,” STARZ’s “Outlander,” MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” and FX’s “American Horror Story.” The weeklong pop culture event welcomes both the casts and creators, as audiences are treated to a behind-the-scenes look via an exclusive, on-stage Q&A. For those that can’t attend, Yahoo Screen will live stream each panel session following each event, which can also be accessed through the Paley App and Yahoo Screen App.
PALM DESERT FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL
Epicurean experts and general foodie fans in need of an escape from L.A. make their way to the 5th annual the Food & Wine Festival in Palm Desert for a delightful selection of premium wines and tastings from over 50 restaurants. Showcasing Coachella Valley as a culinary destination, the event begins with a four-course luncheon and ends with bubbles and brew over brunch.
We’re fresh off the runway and officially warming up from those cool New York nights, and we’d like to thank everyone who made our Fall 2015 Runway show possible.
“BCBGMAXAZRIA Fall 2015 collection journeys north from the vibrant city of Barcelona to the shores of the Baltic Sea. Reconciling effortless streetwear with bohemian undertones, the collection underlines our muse’s independent spirit and irresistible sense of adventure.” Tomandlorenzo.com
“For Fall 2015, Hervé Léger drew its inspiration from the magnificent Basilica de la Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudi. The collection journeys through the symbolism captured in three of the basilica’s facades and its outstanding stained glass windows: “Nativity,” “Passion” and “Glory,” which signify the concepts of birth, sacrifice and toil in human nature.” Experience.herveleger.com/runway/
FESTIVAL OF COLORS
Los Angeles douses itself in color for Holi. Technicolor bursts of magenta, cobalt blue and electric yellow blanket the sky during the traditional Indian festival of color, where revelers throw powder on one another in the spirit of love and enlightenment. The West Coast-style celebration will include mass Vinyasa and CorePower yoga sessions, and high-energy performances by world-music powerhouses.
NATIONAL WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH
We honor our most influential female pioneers during National Women’s History Month, which is celebrated through the country with various events, including the Women’s International Film and Art Festival (WIFF). WIFF will give female filmmakers an opportunity to showcase their movies for industry insiders and diverse audiences from around the world. Now in its 10th year, the event takes place in Miami, Florida and also raises funds to support women’s causes and shines a spotlight on “social, political and health issues impacting women globally.” BCBMAXAZRIA will take the month to shine a spotlight on some of our most inspirational women.
L.A. FASHION WEEK
With New York Fashion Week behind us, it’s L.A.’s turn to showcase the styles of the industry’s top designers. With the arrival of Tom Ford and his star-studded lineup of movers and shakers, L.A. is finally gaining fame for its place in fashion. With locations throughout Los Angeles, there are plenty of events to pick from.
