Advanced Style Book Signing at LOUISE GREEN Studio

Oh, what fun we had on Sunday at the LOUISE GREEN hat studio with the book signing for Ari Seth Cohen's most recent book Advanced Style Older & Wiser.  With well over 100 stylish Angelenos in attendance, all enjoyed the wine, hats, books & meeting other creative souls!

Author, film-maker, blogger & photographer Ari Seth Cohen created Advanced Style, a project devoted “to capturing the sartorial savvy of the senior set.”   He says, “I feature people who live full creative lives. They live life to the fullest, age gracefully and continue to grow and challenge themselves.”  In his books, photographs & film, Ari documents & celebrates the wisdom & creativity of older people.  "Who truely catches my eye are those whose artful and creative dressing is a reflection of their indomitable spirits and the refusal to become invisible."

The title says it all, a book about Los Angeles hidden & quirky by Desa Philadelphia.

"beyond the crowded star-paved boulevards of Hollywood and famously posh boutiques of Rodeo Drive, is another Los Angeles; a shopper’s paradise, brimming with hundreds of charming, eclectic, nostalgic, glamorous, or quirky neighborhood boutiques, eateries, and cafes."

Following are five of Los Angeles' top style creators, offering everything from trippy headpieces to stunning stilettos to beautiful ball gowns and everything in between.

 Louise Green Millinery Co.

Louise Green can top a head in so many ways. Her fedoras are as smashing as her fascinators, her accent materials of choice — from flowers to feathers to crystals — always please and her color palette is as rich as a master’s paint box. This Westsider, born and bred in Britain, has been coming up with smashing styles in Los Angeles since 1987, working up to making her sprawling hat factory a highly successful, high-end operation that is arguably one of the tops in the nation.
