Donna has been working really hard the past few weeks helping a friend of ours open a new store. It's called A&G Rock Couture and will sell luxury cashmere sweaters, goodies and jackets plus very rock and roll jewellry-- lots of skulls, crosses and the like, in chunky silver and gold. The shop is on Melrose Avenue just up the street from hip LA stores like Fred Segal, Agent Provocateur, Bathing Ape and Great China WAll etc. She has been dealing with a lot of pressure from some fairly intense characters but has managed to pull it all together. It is not the best time to be opening a retail space but there is already an established wholesale business so that is a bit of a leg-up. They are thinking they might officially open on Monday.
