Fashion week: don’t ever miss it again

L.a. Fashion Week: Don’t Ever Miss it Again

Los Angeles is considered as the “fashion capital” when you go to the West Coast.  It usually holds a fashion week twice a year.  During this event, American design houses get the chance to show off their newest and trendiest collections.

The recently concluded fashion week is no exception.  The designers based in L.A. stayed true to their culture by using old Hollywood glamour combined with rich colors, beautiful elegant silhouettes, and lots of femme-fatal.

With an all-round attitude, star-studded days, and weeklong festivities, these designers don’t want to take a backseat and are not afraid to hold their own style.  So take a look at the latest fashion trends from some of L.A.’s notable design houses.


The designer, Erik Kim, is an admirer of Vivienne Westwood and the rest of the punks in the 80’s.  He created his collection called “Monarchy” in order to translate London street style to a look named “trans-global hot” (as what he calls it).

The latest fall collection he showed was inspired by a technique called “layering.”  The color palette was a warm mix of misty green and gray as well as burnt ginger.  There is also a series of clean, urban chic characterized by well-cut trousers, shawls, capes, chunky scarves, and braided hats.  Overall, it created a winter wonderland theme.

Candice Held   

This collection is all about celebrating the female spirit and form.  Candice Held’s use of lively shades, shiny fabrics, quirky and funky variations made of colorful and geometric prints created a fun blend.  She formed her unique creations by mish-mashing colors, patterns, and fabrics while testing the boundaries at the same time.

Jenny Han

For the latest fall collection, the designer, Jenny Han, illustrated the 70’s glamour with a modern twist.  Rich colors palette of golden yellows, teal, navy blues and emeralds graced the runway.  There were blue and charming turquoise evening dresses, high waist skirts and pants, as well as grey and black mini-dresses.  Truly, it is a wearable and elegant collection.

Whitley Kros

The designers, Sophia Coloma and Marissa Ribisi, paraded their latest collection with a mixture of style taken from the 70’s to the 80’s.  There were bright colors of burnt ginger, red, black, and white.  You can also appreciate the cigarette pants, blazers, oversized knits, as well as the plaid and tweed fabrics worn together with animal prints.  Overall, it is a clean and aesthetic collection.

Nicholai by Nicky Hilton

The lovely and young heiress, Nicky Hilton, presented her collection with a look inspired from rock chic-bondage-cavalier.  Her models appeared with riding boots, gloves, and derby hats combined with cropped red or black blazers as well as black latex leggings.  She also showed some girly accessories and conventional blouses.  

Christian Audigier

Designer Christian Audigier was the center of attention in this event.  He ruled the Los Angeles fashion week runway by showing off his “American Lord” collection.  It was an explosion of punk-rock Americana combined with some British aristocracy.

So think about royal crowns, flags, and plaid skirts together with matching waistcoats for school girls. Gold-sequined motorcycle jackets, jeans, and leggings also stood out while emphasizing a red and black plaid color palette.
