I had the pleasure of being invited to LA Fashion Week in LA Mark organized by LA Fashion Council. It was a wonderful experience to see local emerging labels / designers bring new ideas and different expressions to Fashion. Every single designer has his /her own stamp and label. The event was fun and interactive, with a warm Cali vibe yet very professional approach. Below is a description of the designers that caught my eye during the show!
Debbie Talanian founded Stella Proseyn in 2012. Debbie´s style is absolutely timeless and very polished. She believes in making clothes that? will never be “out” because they were never “in”. The Stella Proseyn collection had simple / architectural and gentle silhouettes with an edgy touch. The garments were beautifully made with metallic fabrics and a sporty effortless chic style. Her looks are classy and trendy; you can wear them from day to night. Stella Proseyn is designed and produced in Los Angeles. Instagram @stellaproseyn
The William Bradley brand is originally from Tuscaloosa, Alabama and was founded in 2011 by partners Brad Parnell and Rodney Jones. The pair has an artistic and contemporary approach to fashion, which is reflected in their brand. William Bradley offers the ideal juxtaposition of American design and European sensibilities. Their pieces are completely stunning, thoughtfully made incorporating art in day-to-day garments with a sophisticated touch. The Art Piece “The Blind Man’s Meal” by Pablo Picasso inspired them to create this collection. They displayed their innovative and creative style with gorgeous custom prints with flourishes of color and delicate silks. Instagram @_williambradley
That’s Totally Fine was started in 2013 by Rose La Grua. The goal of this brand is to provide options that are both contemporary and decorative, while simultaneously maintaining functionality. Rose la Grua brought something different that caught my attention: enhancing unusual cuts and silhouettes making them look cool, fun and wearable. She says each piece is a canvas for the wearer to explore in their own way. The inspiration for this collection was natural beauty of spring, integrating natural elements, like flowers, with pockets for their placement. Instagram @roselagrua
Stephanie Lampkin, fashion designer based in LA, founded Odylyne in 2009. She presented “The Ceremony”, a line of gowns and dresses for brides and bridesmaids. The collection was beautifully made, very feminine bohemian chic adding a vintage organic simplicity to the gowns. It represents a romantic, free and natural majestic spirit, mixed with hand dyed silks, lace, embroideries and alluring crowns. Instagram @odylyne ( photo nº 3 photographed by: Hagop Kalaidjian)
