Conceptually in LA Fashion Week
I was a Broadcast Journalism major in college so I have the timeliness factor ingrained in my not-doing-anything-now-with-Broadcast-Journalism head. You see, I had gone to Concept LA Fashion Week in March and had this post ready, but with the rest of the circulatory Fashion Week coverage, I held this back. Why, you may ask? The collections I saw are still relevant, and even more so now that we are headed into Fall 2010- the season that my favorite looks below are marching right into. A timely look back- or shall I say, forward….
Chelsea Rebelle had my favorite look of the night- represented in the first photo, I love the dynamic between the demure Peter Pan collar and bow with the sexy sheerness, hot pants, and knee-highs. Set with hard-core leather cut-out gloves and topped with playful teased hair, and you’ve got an intriguing look.
I gravitated toward the nautical inspiration I got from B. Scott’s middle look. With the popped collar, layered t-shirts, and unexpected pops of colors on his chest, this guy makes you want to take a journey with him. As does the James Dean look-alike in the bottom right photo.
The Fremont black dress in the first photo was my favorite styled look. The bottom circular detail keeps me guessing as to why it’s there- but because of that fact- it makes the dress’s perspective that more unique. The head-to-toe covering from the chunky knit hat to the pointy-toed boots make for a toughness that I will be stomping through this season in.

I would be perfectly content if I had one pair of shoes and these were it. Away from the urban vibes on the ground floor, Farm Tactics created an installation that was natural and naturally solid in authenticity and heart.

This is what you can create with vintage military fabric.

Elmer Ave. took clothing displays to the next level. Is this stating that the pieces are creatively outside of the bubble? I’m not certain, but he certainly made me stare at the clothes moving with him.
I would love to wear this blazer as a dress.
