Follow us down the rabbit hole

What's This?

 

Follow The Little Red Dog down the Rabbit Hole to The Sowden House, designed and built by Lloyd Wright in 1926. This Mayan Temple in Los Feliz is the former home of the alleged Black Dahlia murderer.  Here the doors will open up to our Pawtastic Ball, a Gala, blending live music, theatre, fashion, cosplay, magic, fine art and riveting shows. Delightful attractions include a photo booth, magician, live art, and artisan & couture vending, mystical and nonsensical oddities, specialty cocktails, alluring sideshows & activities. Dress to impress! Try your luck at the silent auction and raffle, and much more to benefit The Little Red Dog. 

Dress to Impress!

 

Dress code you ask? The allure, the excitement of our event is that we do not have a dress code. No one kind of look or fashion is “right” or required. Our only request — and please, this we implore you — is that you dress up in some manner. Step out of your ordinary life, and join the celebration!

For some this might mean an elaborate, hand-made gown or corset or Edwardian-esque attire. For others it might be a playful hat, fine headpiece inspired by Alice In Wonderland—the Mad Hatter. Even that fancy pair of knickers and boots would be spot on. Of course, the classic, elegant black tie is always en vogue. Anything goes! Dress to impress!

The sowden house

The Perfect Setting for a Gala

Designed in 1926 by Lloyd Wright, son of America’s greatest architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, the Sowden House is a meticulously renovated 6,000 square-foot neo-Mayan mansion in the heart of modern Hollywood. The original owner of the house, and the person for which it was named, was John Sowden, an artist and photographer who used the house to host extravagant parties and theatrical displays with his wife, Ruth Sowden.


The Sowden House was also once the home of notorious Black Dahlia murder suspect, Dr. George Hodel. An esteemed Los Angeles physician, Dr. George Hodel was never actually named as a suspect at the time of the investigation. However, his son, a retired Los Angeles homicide detective, later claimed that his father had murdered Elizabeth Short in the basement of the Sowden House in January 1947.


The house transferred ownership for years, until 2001 when designer Xorin Balbes purchased the home for $1.2 million. It was Xorin Balbes who restored the house into the structure it is today.
