LA designer Onch hosted yet another magical party for the opening of his month long pop-up shop “Perfectasy” (combining ‘perfection’ and ‘ecstasy’) at the Royal-T Cafe in Culver City. This event marked one of five OnchMovement events taking place throughout the month of August. Guests at the event were treated to a candy bar, the famous Royal-T Cafe maids in Japanese cosplay, a mermaid, live butterflies and ladybugs and the highlight- a unicorn…err…a horse with a sparkly blue horn and one of Onch’s signature neon pink pretzels painted on the side of its rear-end. Onch showcased his line of candy, meat, eggs and pretzel goodness, as well as OnchMovement-themed pieces by Petro Zillia designer-Nony Tochterman and “Tentacle Women” necklaces by Misha, along with tees that he collaborated on with designer- Traver Rains (formerly of Heatherette). Also on display were colorful unicorn hoodies and tails that were in collaboration with Happy Hoodie Friends. It was such a fun and festive evening. I enjoyed meeting new people and seeing all the playful fashion.
