“Fashion is about dreaming and making other people dream” – Donatella Versace
An inspired week for the LA Fashion scene wraps up as LA Fashion Week Fall & Winter 2017 comes to a close. Always evolving, the theme and scale for the events this week was more about intimacy and personal connection. The venues this year were a delightful mix of high end glamour with the W Hotel hosting the opening ceremonies, discrete on the outside yet lively on the inside with Plaza Bar in Hollywood hosting a show, and industrial underground with Hubble Studios on the outskirts of downtown LA as the venue for all the rest of the shows. The opening ceremonies featured some live musical performances, a live art demonstration, stunning a performance by the Anahiem Ballet and a display of never before seen prints of Andy Worhol.
The venue selection and pacing of the shows this season harkened back to the budding fashion scene of New York in early 1990’s. The “less is more” approach this season combined with the inspired works of the designers made for a spectacular an truly memorable event. We can’t wait to see what the dedicated LA Fashion Week team pulls off later this year for the spring / summer ’18 show!
