When you catch word of a fashion show on a Tuesday night, you feel inclined to check it out. When you hear it’s at the hip Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills, you have to check it out. When you discover it’s Sia Suman showcasing a new Fall/Winter 2017 collection, you find yourself at the venue before you finish reading this sentence.

At the venue, you’ll find noted guests such as Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite) and Ken Davitian (Borat), among a host of other attendees. Not doing anything in a traditional style, you’ll also find Suman’s designs to be highly fashionable, elite, and prime for the red carpet any top Hollywood event. The show made use of the entire venue space as an extended runway, ensuring everyone one got a close up and indepth viewing of the intricately elaborate designs.

All in all it was a fun way to spend a Tuesday night…and to top it off we shot over to one of our favorite hot spots Toca Madera for an Agua Fresca, which we consider the best cocktail in Los Angeles.

LA Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017

“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!
