Inspired by a combination of the countless “flash sale” websites taking over the internet; Urban Sanctuary will span three days and feature a multitude of interactive demos, displays, activities and entertainment for guests to experience.
Urban Sanctuary is designed to be just what it’s name implies; both an elegant and exclusive meeting place where industry leaders, emerging brands, trendsetting consumers, and the Hollywood elite gather to mix, mingle, sip & shop while raising money for various charitable organizations focused on improving communities & changing lives.
Boasting an elite list of clients + collaborators and offering a truly memorable shopping experience for guests; the members-only shopping club’s sole mission is to create positive change through a unique series of retail events that create, connect, and inspire attendees. At 4pm daily the Urban Sanctuary will be open to consumers as well as L.A. tastemakers who will be offered a sneak peak at this “social media retail revolution.”
They will have unparalleled access to shop luxury and lifestyle brands at a special discounted rate, with a portion of all proceeds going back to the St. Bernard Project, in support of their work to rebuild homes and lives for Hurricane Katrina Survivors in New Orleans.
The September Urban Sanctuary has been specifically tailored to cater to the upscale ‘jetset’ crowd; offering an inside look at the newest offerings from brands that have raised the bar on fashion, technology, leisure and lifestyle products for the trendy traveler. When asked how his concept for Urban Sanctuary was different, 0Three Media founder Thom Vest remarked “I really wanted to create a comfortable and interactive environment where celebrities, media, brands and tastemakers could co-exist while blurring the lines that have confined not only the retail experience but also that of the traditional gifting suite.”
The transformation took place at Alma G. Salon in NYC’s Flatiron district. Ourr heroines are pretty close in profile to the sexy and talented gals from the show that defined what it means to be feminine, feisty and fashionable in the most glamorous city on the planet.
If you can makeover here like the one these three beauties received from Alma G and her talented team of stylists, well you can take it anywhere!
Here we go: Angie Bolivar,
a petite brunette law student currently interning with a law firm in New Jersey, a makeover that was pretty drastic in its scope with a result that was nothing less than cutting edge chic. Angie arrived at Alma’s salon early in the day to consult with the team about the direction she was open to going in.
Alma described her vision to Angie with her trademark confidence and passion for what she sees as the beauty in the raw that her talents can draw out of an individual. Angie at first seemed very hesitant to commit to this radical change because she justifiably was concerned about the conservative nature of her profession. Alma wanted to take Angie’s look to the extreme with an asymmetrical cut and a shock of vivid blue color. Angie’s hesitation was completely erased by Alma’s assurances that the result would highlight and help define her already gorgeous cheekbones and bring out her inner gamine.
a lithe and lovely dance instructor from NY’s Upper West Side, Meridith was committed to keeping her hair long and was reluctant to lose more than a couple of inches of dry split ends. She too couldn’t resist the team’s charm. An voila, her brunette locks were changed into lustrous honey blonde and sunny highlights that brought out her gorgeous eye color and enhanced her rich skin tone.
A manicure with hand painted floral detail by the patient and methodical manicurist Maritza completed Merdith’s transformation from beachy frizz and chipped nails to well tended glamour goddess.
And for our youngest transformed lovely we have the sexy Tamy Cruz, a recent high school graduate with plans to attend college this fall to study Marine Biology. She walked into Alma’s salon defiant to keep her tresses long. She quickly also succumbed to the will and artistry of the woman who knows what is best for personal beauty statements and now sports a super sexy. Alma’s team is very tight knit that aspire to artistic beauty.
Makeup by Veronica–highly skilled stylist who has mad skills with color as well as cut, but she was the maestro behind the makeup for all three women. Hair styling: Ryan did the cuts for Meridith and Angie, while Alma G. took are of Tamy’s tresses.

Linda Covello covered Theia’s fall fashion show at NY Fashion Week, here’s her first hand report:
Fashion Week kicked off on Wednesday with an exclusive preview of Theia’s Fall 2011 collection. Creative Director Don O’Neill presented his mystically and galactically inspired gowns and dresses to a rapt audience who seemed transfixed listening to him explain how his designs are a reflection of a lifelong obsession with his own Celtic heritage as well as the mythical and powerful Irish national treasure, “The Book of Kells”. The calligraphy and design motifs within this ancient text are reflected on the fabrics of the luminous dresses and gowns that managed to catch the light in a very mystical way as the models twirled and walked in the bright white showroom.
O’Neill has a lustrous fashion background that includes training with Lacroix in Paris as well as time spent as the steward of the Badgley Mischka Platinum label. His earliest inspiration comes from his mother and her elegant Bergdorf Goodman dresses and Ib Jorgensen couture suits, which must have lit up the small seaside village of Ballyheigue in Ireland where O’Neill was raised. Now his lovely and ethereal dresses are gracing the sylphlike forms of Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift. The lovely young Swift just wore O’Neill’s silvery glimmering and shimmering mini dress on October 26th on NBC’s The Today Show for her album release performance.
Theia’s designs are the perfect compliment to any gorgeous actress making her appearance on the red carpet.
