Forever 21 x Brian Lichtenberg Launch Party

forever21-brian lichtenberg

On Thursday night, Forever 21 celebrated its first designer collaboration with LA designer Brian Lichtenberg by throwing a launch party at the Beverly Center Terrace.  A stylish crowd, music spun by DJ Lindsay Luv and a DIY station all added up to a great time.

Available online and at all F21 stores, Lichtenberg’s collection of tees and tanks retail for under $15.

With Lichtenberg’s fashion forward aesthetic, I wonder if there will be future collaborations with F21 to do a line of party dresses featuring some cutouts, mesh and lots of metallic, glittery goodness.  That’s a collection I’d definitely be interested in seeing, because you know, I love cutouts.  Hint, hint.

    Yeah, I’d definitely love them to take the collaboration one step further, because I gotta admit that having nothing but tanks and tees in one is disappointing. Great documentation of the night, though! Love how you paired pink wedges with green stockings. You know no fear, girl, and it’s fabulous! :)

    I saw the post regarding this on F21′s blog. I loved all the cutouts, myself! The teal dress is probably my favorite, particularly because of the long sleeves. I really wish it weren’t all T-shirts. I saw the collection and thought, “That’s it?”

    Love your wedges! I feel like I’ve seen them before and that they’re by Dolce Vita, just because I recall wanting them in black, haha. I also love your top, too!

    Great post! Keep it up :)
