Take the afternoon off to explore the city through a design lens. From design studios and galleries to local eateries, shops, and restaurants, the first-ever Design Hooky tours offer a peek into the creative culture of LA.  Each self-guided tour culminates with a party. 

Join us on June 27 as we kick off the last of our city-wide Design Hooky event series, with a day of exciting programming in the Melrose/Beverly neighborhood. Explore the city, meet some of LA's most interesting design personalities and see their design labs. And be sure to check out the debut of a special LA Design Festival installation at Woven Accents that embodies the collaborative spirit of LA's diverse creative culture.
