LAFC Spring 2013 Collections Day Two
October 11th, 2012 kicked off day two of our Spring Collections and after the fun and success of the day prior, we couldn’t wait to see what day two had in store.
The afternoon kicked off with a a lunch and lesson in Macro Trends from the West Coast’s very own Sally Lohan of WGSN where attendees learned first hand what’s going to be in and out this coming spring. From space themes, to art deco themes to storybook themes, fashionistas were on the edge of their seats wanting to know the trends for Spring 2013.
The lesson was swiftly followed by the debut of Argentinian turned Angeleno designer Luciana Salamone’s Spring 2013 collection – echoing both Victorian and the thirties. The collection was heavily romantic featuring cream colored lace and white gloves.
A dramatic and artistic film installation and performance, including ballet, from Kittinhawk, by designer Allysun Dutra, mesmerized the audience and offered a insight in to the artistic background of this designer. The performance was well choreographed and told a dark, melodramatic story.
AGAIN, from designer Amber Kekich, was up next, with her ready-to-wear collection. Attendees were instantly drawn to the baby’s breath on the ground and the white roses ready for them at their seats. Her spring collection titled ‘Grey Gardens’ consisted of dresses and separates complete with amazing prints and neon detailing, right on trend.
Closing out our two days of shows was the debut apparel collection from Luxury Jones, by designer Niki Dimitras, best known for her footwear, her debut apparel collection, created from reclaimed fabrics and vintage items, will be sold in Urban Outfitters from December.
We’re so thankful for everyone who came and supported our first set of shows and everyone who tweeted, facebooked and instagramed the day away. We had an amazing time putting this together and were so pleased to showcase the Los Angeles based talent we love.
Stay tuned for next season!
