Los Angeles Fashion Week is Underway
After a beautiful debut at Carondelet House near downtown LA, the LA Fashion Council sped across town to set-up a pop-up show at the W Hotel Los Angeles in Westwood, part of a new monthly series featuring LA fashion talents.
The fashion cognoscenti saw a very LA series of shows and informal presentations with Concept Fashion Week including favorites martinMARTIN, NAMI and more which were the Saturday highlight at Siren Studios, and celebrated designer Jonny Cota hosted friends at his private presentation of Skingraft Spring 2013 at the Mondrian.
Just added to the calendar for Monday, October 15: A Maggie Barry futuristic fashion & footwear fusion runway/video show with Michael Antonio footwear, plus market opening celebrations at CMC and Cooper Design Space. Style Fashion Week is also about to get underway with a reception tonight at Petit Ermitage hotel for designers presenting on the runway this week at Vibiana including the notable Louis Verdad plus Dar Sara, Paulie Gibson, Flick Voyager, Local Socialite, MadisonPark Collective, Bri Seeley, Kait Blu, Jhaus, and international designers Patuna Bushyhead, Quynh Paris and Ash Haute Couture.
Also just added are events by Nike Kondakis (presented by GenArt Global, a new sister division to GenArt Fresh Faces), Gypsy Junkies, Haus of Allure and show for fashion tech types at Cross Campus in Santa Monica. There is a lot to see before LA Fashion Week moves into Weekend mode.
