A letter from the editorDear Angeles Readers, As the editor of this magazine I would like to share something with you all. I went to college at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising(FIDM) in Downtown L.A. for Graphic Design Living here and being a student in the design world.I quickly learned the best places to shop. Los Angeles is the largest manufacturing area in the western U.S. and home to many top designers, Los Angeles ranks as a global fashion center. One classic Los Angeles experience is a cruise down Melrose. Nearby, boutiques cluster along Third Avenue and there’s the old-school Beverly Center, a three-story mall anchored by Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, and the Grove. Downtown’s Los Angeles Fashion District is heaven for bargain-seekers. Its opposite can be found on Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive. In this magazine we want to take you, the reader to the hottest shopping spots in L.A. and keep you updated with the latest styles.

The World and Style of Fornasetti How surreal art became fashion plates.
By Dagmar Fiction
“Dear contemporaries, don’t you realize how different we are? Although I depict you as equals and like the ancients you never change.” Piero Fornasetti Piero Fornasetti (10 November 1913 - 1988) was an Italian painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver. Combining whimsy and elegance, Piero Fornasetti (1913–1988) transformed everyday objects like cups, scarves, and screens into works of art featuring his idiosyncratic leitmotifs, such as the hand, the female face, and luminescent fish. Additionally, he created a wide range of works, including idealized architectural fantasy drawings, book designs, and provocative nudes, as well as the decor for the luxury liner Andrea Doria. Perhaps most famous for dazzling pieces of trompe l’oeil furniture, Fornasetti was rediscovered in the 1980s and has remained much sought-after by collectors worldwide. Featuring 2,800 illustrations, many never before published, the monograph is designed to be an “artist’s book” that reflects as faithfully as possible Fornasetti’s own approach to design.

TEN reasons to fall in love. Do we really need an excuse? By Kendra Lyon
10. It makes you better-looking.
This is not a joke. Believe it or not, falling in love can really make you look a lot better. If you’re the type of person who doesn’t care about your physical appearance, fall in love and see how you would change. When you’re in love, you will always try to look your very best not just to impress the one you love but also to feel good about yourself. You feel conscious about your outfit, your hair and your movements. Even when you don’t exert any effort on improving your appearance, love really brings something magical to its victims. When people are in love, they smile a lot. There is a certain glowing aura that people in love emit that radiates happiness.
9. It makes you nicer.
How can you be mean to people around you when there is someone who makes every minute of your life wonderful? When people are in love, we tend to focus on our feelings for that lucky person and pay not much attention to other things, much less to the things that make our blood reach the boiling point. And because there is someone who makes us smile every time, it is hard to frown and make other people’s lives miserable. We tend to forget our bitter past and our plans of revenge in the future because what matters is the present.
8. It makes you richer.
It doesn’t mean that you should marry Donald Trump or some other billionaire. Even if you fall in love with an average guy, you have ore chances of getting rich. This is because you are more inspired to work and you have another reason to work hard. Intentionally or unintentionally, you will find yourself doing your job a little less exhausting because the feeling of going home to someone you love keeps you through the day in a way that you don’t realize how much work you have done. This is true. Studies have shown that individuals in longterm committed relationships earn more than those who stay single. So if you want to get rich, fall in love.
7. It makes you healthier.
When you’re in love, you care about yourself. It’s not just physical appearance, it is your overall well-being including your health. If you used to ignore that migraine you’ve been enduring for years, when you’re in love, there is a high chance that you would call your doctor for an appointment and schedule a check-up. You might even undergo tests that you have been putting off for the longest time like mammogram and PSA. When you’re in love, there is an intense urge to care for your health because you want to live long, because you have a good reason to. You want to live long not just for yourself but also for that special someone. If suicidal thoughts enter your mind all the time, you will forget about them altogether when you fall in love. You have a reason to live now and you know how your self-destruction makes him or her feel. And you don’t want him/her to be hurt, especially not by you.

6. It makes you mushier.
There’s nothing wrong with being mushy. It only means that you are sentimental and emotional. It only means that you care about how other people feel, especially the person you are in love with. If you have always thought that the lines uttered in those romantic movies are stupid, you will be surprised to find yourself in one, saying those mushy lines. It is alright. There is nothing unmanly about expressing how you feel and letting your significant other know how important he or she is to you. It is not a crime. Being mushy is not a crime.
5. It makes you stronger.
Although it can also make you weaker in certain ways, falling in love makes you stronger. How? First of all, sex is a good workout. Haha. Seriously, people in love want and try to be strong for themselves and those we care for. We will do and endure anything to protect the person we love and give them what he or she wants. When we are sick, we want to get better fast so we can enjoy more time with him or her. We become stronger so we can catch them when they fall and lift them when their down. Being strong can also be interpreted in another way. Some people can take all the pain that love brings just so they don’t lose them. Even when they are hurt by factors ranging from differences to third party to family, they choose to stay in the relationship because they are strong enough and they know that it will pass. Love is not easy to let go. If we can keep it, we will. Love is like that. It’s pleasure and pain rolled into one and it takes a lot of strength. Love is not for the weak-hearted.
3. It makes you more responsible.
If your life is in disarray, you will set everything straight when you’re in love. You will find a good job because you think of your future together. You will take good care of your finances. You will fix your relationship with your family. You will forget about your unfinished business with your exes. You will even clean your room, which you haven’t done since you hit puberty. When you’re in love, your life develops a sense of direction.
1. It makes you happier.
When you’re in love, you will never find yourself alone. You already have a partner to do things with and it’s not just sex. Yes, sex makes people happy but it’s more than that. Simple activities can become fantastic when you do it with someone, especially with the one you truly treasure. These things will make you happy and it will show big time. You’ll be surprised that you will see yourself smiling and laughing all the freaking damn time. You think about him or her, you smile. You see him/her walking, you smile. You see him/her trip on her toe, you smile. When you’re in love, you always think positive.
4. It makes you wiser.
Being in a relationship is not all about sunshines and rainbows. There are bad, depressing moments, too. Although it is not a good reason to fall in love, it is not a reason not to, either. In fact, mistakes are essential in love. Each mistake teaches you something important. Every time you make a mistake, you learn. And every time you learn, you become wiser. This enables you not to do the same mistakes again. Being wise means growing up. And it takes grownups to run a relationship.
2. It makes you more creative.
When you’re in love, you think of new ways to take your loved one’s breath away. You cannot do things over and over again or you will beth get tired. You will be forced to come up with new, refreshing ways of saying “I love you,” of celebrating anniversaries, of letting him or her know how you feel. In some cases, people find themselves learning or trying to do things new to them like writing songs or doing something embarrassing. The funny part is, you don’t complain because you enjoy doing it. Weird, but you really do. Another way of being creative is when he or she asks you where you have been last night. Yeah, that will really squeeze out all the creative juices in you.

Building with a Twist Disney Concert Hall photographed by ashli ottati & randy dunbar
Angeles Magazine 23
The Vision In 1987, the late Lillian Disney made an initial gift of $50 million to build a world-class performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney’s devotion to the arts. Since then, other gifts and accumulated interest bring the Disney family’s total contribution to over $100 million. The County of Los Angeles agreed to provide the land and significant additional funding to finance Walt Disney Concert Hall’s sixlevel subterranean parking garage.
In 1988, renowned architect Frank Gehry was selected to design the complex, whose final shape he unveiled in 1991. The County initiated construction of the parking garage in 1992, completing it in 1996. Construction on the Concert Hall itself began in November 1999. Also that year, the Music Center launched a capital campaign to complete the construction funding. Many corporate, foundation, and individual partners, along with the State of California, have contributed generously to the campaign due to the remarkable leadership of Andrea L. Van de Kamp, Chairman of the Music Center, Eli Broad, Chairman of SunAmerica, Inc., and former Los Angeles Mayor Richard J. Riordan. The Los Angeles Philharmonic provided additional funding for the core project and full funding for the Los Angeles Philharmonic Center. Angeles Magazine 25
The Los Angeles Philharmonic The Los Angeles Philharmonic continues its reinvention of the concept of a 21st-century orchestra under the vibrant leadership of Gustavo Dudamel. Embarking on its 92nd season in 2010/11, the Philharmonic is recognized as one of the world’s outstanding orchestras and is received enthusiastically by audiences and critics alike. Both at home and abroad, the Philharmonic is leading the way in innovative programming and redefining the musical experience. This view is shared by more than one million listeners who experience live performances by the Los Angeles Philharmonic each year. The Philharmonic demonstrates a breadth and depth of programming unrivaled by other orchestras and cultural institutions, performing or presenting nearly 300 concerts throughout the year at its two iconic venues: Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl, a popular summer tradition since 1922. The orchestra’s involvement with Los Angeles also extends far beyond regular symphonic performances in a concert hall, embracing the schools, churches, and neighborhood centers of a vastly diverse community.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic was founded by William Andrews Clark Jr., a multi-millionaire and amateur musician, who established the city’s first permanent symphony orchestra in 1919. The 94 musicians of the new ensemble met for their first rehearsal Monday morning, October 13 of that year, under the direction of Walter Henry Rothwell, whom Clark had brought from the St. Paul (Minnesota) Symphony Orchestra. Eleven days later, Rothwell conducted the orchestra’s premiere performance before a capacity audience of 2,400 at Trinity Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles. The audience heard Dvořák’s New World Symphony, Liszt’s Les Préludes, the Overture to Weber’s Oberon, and Chabrier’s España. Rothwell remained the orchestra’s Music Director until his death in 1927. Since then, ten renowned conductors have served in that capacity: Georg Schnéevoigt (1927-1929); Artur Rodzinski (1929-1933); Otto Klemperer (19331939); Alfred Wallenstein (1943-1956); Eduard van Beinum (1956-1959); Zubin Mehta (1962-1978); Carlo Maria Giulini (1978-1984); André Previn (1985-1989); Esa-Pekka Salonen (1992-2009); and Gustavo Dudamel (2009-present).
Following its opening season in 1919/1920, the orchestra made Philharmonic Auditorium, on the northeast corner of Fifth and Olive, its home for the next 44 years. In 1964, the orchestra moved to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Los Angeles Music Center, which was its winter home until its final performances there in May 2003. In October 2003, the doors to one of the world’s most celebrated venues — the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall — were opened and the Los Angeles Philharmonic took the stage in its new home, which has become known not only as a local cultural landmark, but also as “…a sensational place to hear music... In richness of sound, it has few rivals on the international scene, and in terms of visual drama it may have no rival at all.” (The New Yorker) Praise for both the design and the acoustics of the Hall has been effusive, and the glistening curved steel exterior of the 293,000-square-foot Walt Disney Concert Hall embodies the energy, imagination, and creative spirit of the city of Los Angeles and its orchestra.
"This was an exceptional and exciting concert by any standard." Inspired to consider new directions, Gustavo Dudamel and the Philharmonic aim to find programming that remains faithful to tradition, yet also seeks new ground, new audiences, and new ways to enhance the symphonic music experience. During its 30-week winter subscription season of 110 performances at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Philharmonic creates festivals, artist residencies, and other thematic programs designed to delve further into certain artists’ or composers’ work. The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s commitment to the presentation of music of our time is evident in its subscription concerts, the exhilarating Green Umbrella series, and its extensive commissioning initiatives. Now in its 29th year, the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group, devoted exclusively to performing compositions on the cutting edge of the repertoire, attracts leading composers and performers of contemporary music.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association expands its cultural offerings by producing concerts featuring distinguished artists in recital, jazz, world music, songbook, and visiting orchestra performances, in addition to special holiday concerts and series of organ recitals, chamber music, and baroque music. The Philharmonic has led the way into the digital age, with groundbreaking web and mobile device applications. Through an ongoing partnership with Deutsche Grammophon, the orchestra has a substantial catalog of concerts available online, including the first classical music video released on iTunes.
