LAFC Spring 2013 Collections Day One

LAFC Spring 2013 Collections Day One

On October 10th, 2012, Carondelet House, near downtown Los Angeles, opened its doors for day one of our first “home turf” shows. We were so excited to launch this exclusive series of intimate shows, echoing the salon shows of centuries past.

The first presentation of the day came from, sustainable and stylized line, ISM Mode.  Designer, Inka Sherman, had an array of styles in this seasons collection, from seamless, flowy maxi skirts to structured shirt dresses, the collection appeals across the board – to those seeking stylized basics and those who want a complete sophisticated look – made all the more special by the sustainable fabrics.

Shortly after came the ever romantic Odylyne. A crowd favorite, this whimsical, poetic collection combined patterns with goddess-esque silhouettes. Models formed a circle around candles and vases inviting attendees to take photos. The bronze-like butterflies that adorned each models hair are sure to inspire the style blogging set, a finishing touch to a goddess inspired collection.

Jen Awad’s Spring 2013 collection, titled “Down the Rabbit Hole”,  was a fun combination of retro, feminine designs. Awad used checkered and stripe prints along with bows, tulle and cateye sunglasses to create a glamorous and whimsical ladylike collection.

The final show for the evening was Bohemian Society, a line that provided the audience with chaos, both literally and figuratively. Designer Victor Wilde’s Spring 2013 collection was inspired by a post apocalyptic world, with a fire colored color palette. Fishnet tops, fishnets pants, fire colored sequins and leather suits strutted down the runway and gave audiences an insight to Wilde’s apocalyptic mind.
