Explore the Mama Market

- Culver City,

Almanac of Style (think silk wrap dresses), Haati Chai (delicate gold anklets) and Paradise People (color-blocked cotton beach blankets) will be among the indie brands at Platform from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday for a day of bazaar-style shopping.

Held the weekend before Mother’s Day, the Mama Market event will showcase products from female-owned businesses in fashion, accessorie­s, wellness and homeware. The event, which is free and open to the public, is organized by Fashion Mamas, which was founded by Natalie Alcala, a Los Angeles freelance fashion editor. (Fashion Mamas is a members-only group of mothers who work in fashion and creative fields.)

The event’s 30-plus booths will be spread through Platform’s outdoor space, and chic Spanish footwear brand Freda Salvador will be the host of an after-party. Fashion Mamas shopping event at Platform, 8850 Washington Blvd.,
