LA Fashion Week – See what you’ll be wearing next Spring.
Here are our runway snaps from the front row of Fashion Week LA, downtown at the fabulous Vibiana. Fashions from four fresh designers for Spring 2013 include (in order of appearance) Bri Seeley, JHaus, Kait Blu and Patuna Bushyhead. We caught up with designer JLynn Hausman for a little sit down to discuss her inspiration for the show. Bringing denim designs with corn, burlap and even chicken wire onto the runway, this young designer flaunts her purebred American style.
First up was the line from Bri Seeley. The blonde and blue short dress and blonde dress with softly striped bodice (both with pockets, thank you) delivered very wearable style with instant classic written all over them. Bright blue fitted cropped pants topped with an exuberant floral wrap top, pictured in the gallery above rounds out my top three from Bri. There’s a retro influence with very figure flattering lines and a certain easy grace and sophistication to these designs.
Next up, JHaus hit the runway with denim shorts, skirts, dresses and brilliantly hued jeans. Stand out designs include her corn, seemingly liquid denim, and burlap mullet – short in front with a flowing train in back – couture gowns. The performances by Jennifer Spingola of Spags Music on the electric violin and her man dancers, rocked the house in stilettos and JHaus jeans in Audacious Blue. Check out our interview with JLynn Hausman below. Meet this young designer and learn about what influences and informs her designs!
Speaking of young designers, Kaitlyn Fitzgerald of Kait Blu is just 17 and still in high school, although you wouldn’t know it from her work. Kait Blu’s offering for Spring 2013 offers predominately white and tan solids judiciously accented with a palate of corals prints. With classic bones and lots of original details, this designer is one to keep your eye on.
Last up, we were treated to a flowing line of floor length couture gowns with fabulous draping and ornate embellishments all in a delicious range of mochas, creams, plums and roses. These are gowns for Goddesses – utterly feminine, diaphanous and powerful in their mystery and allure. It’s no wonder they are red carpet couture. Like a signature fragrance subtly seduces and bewitches, these gowns leave a whisper of romance lingering in the air when they leave a room.
It is so exciting to see LA Fashion Week claiming its place on the world stage. The combination of theatricality, movie making magic and fashion innovation blend seamlessly to deliver an experience you won’t forget.
