When the Sea Shepherd’s sleek new vessel, the Ady Gil, was sunk after a collision with a Japanese whaling vessel, bridal shop owner Lisa Litt immediately pounced on the opportunity to give back. As owner of Lilli Bridals in Tarzana, CA, she decided to organize her next trunk show, a collaboration with eco-friendly wedding gown designer Adele Wechsler, as a fundraising venue for the anti-whaling organization.
On February 5th, 6th, and 7th, local California brides will have the opportunity to meet Toronto-based designer Adele Wechsler and try on her latest collection of eco-friendly gowns, as well as meet Ady Gil (Saturday only starting at approx. 12pm) and make a donation to the construction of the “Ady Gil II”. Litt is donating 5% of every dress sold at the trunk show to the resurrection of the “Ady Gil” and with retail prices starting at over $2000.00, that could make for a successful fundraising weekend!
All of Wechsler’s gowns are made from organic hemp and silk blends using vegetable-based dyes, remnant lace and fabrics, and fair trade labor.
The trunk show will take place on Friday the 5th from 10am-6pm, Saturday the 6th from 10am-5pm, and conclude on Sunday the 7th from 12-5pm (by appointment only). Lili Bridals is located at 18663 Ventura Blvd in Tarzana. For questions or to book an appointment, please call 818-774-9700.
