POPULOUS is a market/gathering of several clothing and accessory designers who have united together to create a community of high end artisans and designers on the Eastside of Los Angeles. Many of the artists and designers create everything by hand or use small and local productions to create their product. The concept is rooted in the idea of buying local, handmade goods and showing support to the creators within our community. The co-operative serves several purposes: to enrich the sense of community and culture in the Eastside of Los Angeles, to build a supportive network for designers and to create an open market to share our goods with the public in our own free formed and designed spaces.
The event will take place on Sunday MAY 20 from 11 AM TO 5PM at PIETER; a performance art and dance space in Lincoln Height’s Lacy Studios, a renovated 1930’s electrical factory. Homemade refreshments will be offered from several of the designers own recipes.
