    The only outfits I remotely,just a smidge liked was Magda Berliner,Michelle Mason and Tree. Overall,however,I'm in agreement with Lolita* :huh:

    Space* I thought you were a fashion designer too? Where were you at? ;)

    I think the "problem" with LA fashion/ designers is of course they are 'late' and trendy, but when you give people what they want the feeling is predictable/friendly.....but when you give something unexpected and something they never knew they wanted its much more " buzzworthy" . Understood these are small designers just in the beginning stages of their career, but if you arent going to take a risks, you will be invisibale. and these LA designers are invisable.

    i mean. just look at this thread....nobody is responding.....these pictues arent even worth talking about..... :cry: :doh:

    And usually,its in the beginning stages when a designer tends to experiment more and takes such risks.

    I think,truly,its all a matter of hype. You can only generate so much before it just goes downhill. The first couple fashion weeks I saw wasn't bad but thereafter it got a bit hit and miss.

    shawn has changed a bit i noticed.......she had these colorful tanks/ halter tops with sea horses , all over melrose for riculous prices. i didnt like her line at all....but now she has jumped on the 80's bandwagon ??? the dresses with hoods are cute and i would wear it, but im still not interested in her as a designer.these local designers are crap to me. joey and t as well. their small line of skirts are boring and trendy. i see more interesting stuff in nyc city in small made to order boutiques. These LA shows tend to cater to LA -thats it.


    i wont even begin to explain ehat i think of that 'orange peel' jenni kayne number :huh:

    :lol: some day :p

    I deffinetly agree with Lo* that most of the LA fashion seen is catering to just LA an dthat its a little trendy.



    However there are some really taleted LA avat garde designers like Martin Martin,Grey Ant , and Jared Gold.

    Bjork looks niceeeee :heart:

    LolitaLuxe, I agree with your other comments about L.A. Fashion Week. I finally saw the show on Full Frontal and nothing really caught my attention. I kept saying "this is so L.A." I will say since I'm a fan of draping, I liked some of Pegah's pieces.

    Indeed. I've gone to several fashion shows here in Hell-A (Spring and Summer) and most collections cater to the "in" crowd of Hollywood, ie: celebrities.

    They are mostly "tease and please" collections. It's interesting, but not new, fresh or groundbreaking.

    And another thing is, LA fashion shows are not planned that well.

    I went to one fashion show where the first few models literally had to shove a bunch people out of their way just so they could march down the cat walk....security just stood there drooling at their boobs exposed through the sheer tops.

    What's so professional and proper about that?! Grrr...makes me mad.

    I hope LA takes fashion superseriously. Someday I'm sure it will be mentioned in the same breath as "Milan," "New York" or "Paris" but it might take some time.

    And then there are tFSers like Lo' and 'Miu who I'm sure will accelerate the process. :heart: :flower: :blush:
