“I want people to feel as if they’ve entered their art-collecting great-aunt’s walk-in closet in Beverly Hills,”

says Lily Kaizer of her new vintage bridal haven, Happy Isles. The former fashion show and event producer has stocked her vibrant Hollywood salon with a hyperdiscerning, eclectic mix of designer vintage looks for the whole wedding weekend—spanning styles such as an early 1980s Valentino column halter gown, a white sequin-and-feather Bill Blass number and a ’60s cream Mongolian fur jacket. Kaizer rounds out the one-stop shop experience with made-to-measure fittings and one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories. Soon the L.A. native will introduce a contemporary collection of ready-to-wear from her favorite non-bridal designers that translates flawlessly into the wedding realm. By appointment only; 6671 Sunset Blvd., Ste. 1595, L.A., 323-378-6315. THEHAPPYISLES.COM
