Tables set up by media sponsors such as “L.A. Fashion Magazine”, “ApparelNews”, “American Gentleman Magazine” provided guests a view of their current magazine layout. Our very own Diversity News Magazine published by Diversity News Publications was also a media sponsor this year which on the first night (10-19-2012) a special print edition was included on VIP’s gift bags. “Bibby Financial” was also in attendance. The financial company was “Kick off party Sponsor” for the night.
“Napoleon” and “Glamglow” beauty products allowed guests to get a makeover. Music played while guests walked around taking pictures for their memorable moments. Media and photographers lined up on the red carpet waiting for celebrities and designers to arrive.
At 8:00 p.m., the fashion show was ready to start. A full house was ready to admire the designer’s Spring/Summer 2013 clothing collections. Mikey Koffman from “The Gallery Los Angeles” was ready to welcome all the designers, media, and guests, but first comes live performance by Hannah Alter and her dancers. She rocked the house.
Brands featured by G.Kim,Wolfeep, Parides, Flynn Skye by Amber Farr and Black Heart Brigade were ready to show all their new line up for Spring/Summer 2013.
Long and loose comfortable dresses hit the runway for Designer, Parides by Shahida Clayton. Mixtures of colors ranging from browns, purples, yellow and white made the style look beautiful and cool for Spring/Summer 2013. Short dresses with stunning spring colors added a hoodie for those cool summer night. Slits on the side of the summer dresses reveals the model’s sexy legs. With all the color combinations, this style can be worn by anyone.
G.Kim by Grace Kim had a different view of style. Chic thin long sleeve dresses with ties at the waist can be great for a summer party or even at the workplace. Pleaded short skirts with colors of blue, beige or brown with a loose white top was very cute. It will be a big hit for the teenage girls. Poncho style cover up looked so classy but summery. It was a great idea to represent something different other than just a thin sweater for those Spring/Summer nights.
Wolfeep by Pamela Wolf brought forth the sexy combination of one sided sleeve blouses. Providing a belt on some of the dresses shows the curves of any women. Color combinations of her outfit were cool and bright.
When it comes to Spring/Summer, sometimes not changing much in the designs can make a statement. Black Hearts Brigade seems to stick with the idea that our past style can still work. Just wearing our blue jeans pants and shorts is what makes us feel sexy and comfortable. Jeans never go out of style. Throwing a tee shirt over your bikini is always a great suggestion. Now, blouses with prints of color, makes a statement for anyone wearing it. The variety of colors such as white, black, pink and gray can be used for any season.
Hat and belt accessories were a great combination for Flynn Skye by Amber Farr. The long dotted dress and jumper is perfect for a Spring/Summer night out. A light blouse with printed pant brings balance to your collection and can be combined with just almost anything from wearing a blazer, or just a thin sweater. Not only this, you can go crazy with the jewelry also. The style seemed easy and can be accessorize with anything else in your clothing collection. She shows us how to have fun with it.
The fashion show is a three day event running October 19 through October 21. On the last day, Dina Dar-el, Anthony Franco, and Nathanaelle Couture will showcase their Spring/Summer 2013 designs for all to enjoy and Mikey Koffman will be producing and hosting. Everyone who attended seemed to be satisfied with the outcome of this evening’s fashion show.
