Andrea Lieberman, Petra Flannery Team for A.L.C. Dinner

The flurry of Los Angeles store openings continues at Palisades Village, the latest being A.L.C., the contemporary brand founded by former stylist Andrea Lieberman in 2008. Lieberman teamed with her former assistant and current super stylist Petra Flannery to host a small dinner at The Draycott on Thursday for her close friends Liz Friedlander, Jennifer Meyer, Erin Foster plus stylists Karla Welch, Erica Cloud and Annabelle Harron. Draycott owner Marissa Hermer was also in the mix, as was actress Olivia Hamilton.
“A small gathering is more my speed,” said Lieberman, a Westside resident. “I admire all these women so much and am so thankful for their support all these years.” Flannery has similar praise for her old boss and good friend. “I’ve learned so much from her, and how she puts her brains into her business.

Costume Jewelry Brand Melinda Maria to Collaborate With Sarah Michelle Gellar, Petra Flannery

Los Angeles-based costume jewelry brand Melinda Maria is finding its groove with a slew of collaborations and an expansion on QVC. The brand, which has a celebrity following that includes Selena Gomez, Alessandra Ambrosio, Taylor Swift, Chrissy Tiegen and Victoria Justice, is known for fashion-forward pieces that retail from $ 38 to $ 298, with a median price of $ 78.
This summer, founder and designer Melinda Maria Spiegel launched her first collaboration with Rebecca Gayheart and Kelly Oxford to benefit the Chrysalis foundation — a pair of butterfly-shaped earring jackets, a bracelet and a necklace. That was followed last month by a capsule with celebrity hair colorist Tracey Cunningham to benefit Nanci Ryder’s ALS charity.

“We design the pieces together and only the strong pieces will survive the cut. It’s not a traditional way of doing a collection for me; it’s very item-driven more than a ‘collection’ because the purpose is to create pieces so customers feel like they are wearing a beautiful piece of Melinda Maria and feel good about giving back,” Spiegel said.
