Leather greatness from KAHLO‘s s/s 2013 collection, A Crowded House.

Had the privilege of meeting lovely designers Rachelle and Fay to learn more about the Australian label’s new collection — most of which I wish was hanging in my closet. Seriously, so many good pieces. More photos to follow!

If it’s at all possible, I just fell more in love with Argentinian designer Maria Cher. Watch and learn love.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Layered ruffles, signature flowy silhouettes and gorgeous headpieces floated down the runway during Odylyne‘s Spring 2012 showcase. Had an instant flashback to the Childlike Empress in “The Neverending Story” when I saw those intricate headpieces.  I’ve followed Odylyne for a while now, and as expected, the collection did not disappoint.

For the classic gal with a playful style, Dear Creatures‘ collection hits all the right notes.  With a retro-inducing vibe, the flirty dresses would be fitting for garden parties, strolls in the park and picture perfect picnic days.

The one-of-a-kind We Are Handsome swimsuit brand continues being awesomely artistic.  Period.  Polly want a peacock?

Full of fun prints and key staples any lady would be lucky to have in her closet, modern Funktional stayed true to its namesake.  And those gold, sparkly shorts?  They have my name written all over them!

As Nirvana played, men’s brand Chambers transported us back to the 90′s, reminding us of those days when shirts tied around your waist was in and grungy style was all the rage.   Head on over HERE to see the rest of the collection, which, guaranteed, Travis from “Clueless” would have worn in a heartbeat.

If I was on a Club Med vacay, my suitcase would be filled with 71 Stantons easy, breezy pieces.  Versatile enough to be styled up or down, the resort-like collection is the epitome of effortless chic.  Especially loved how the models’ hair was clipped in such a sophisticated, half-bun, half-ponytail way.

As the lights dimmed, rock n’ roll couture brand, Stand and Deliver, brought the bad ass.  Leather, chains, studs, spikes, and exposed zippers ran wild down the runway.  Throw in a few theatrical moments and Stand and Deliver… well, delivered.

G E N  A R T, the leading arts and entertainment organization dedicated to showcasing emerging fashion designers, filmmakers, musicians and visual artists returned from a short break with a bang.  Closing out STYLE Fashion Week LA at Vibiana and hosted by the gorg Zoe Saldana, Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion Los Angeles showcased seven designers’ ready-to-wear Spring 2012 collections during a night that helped to bring back the spirit of a community and celebrate some amazingly talented designers. Given Fresh Faces in Fashion Los Angeles was the first event since Gen Art’s “revitalization”, a lot of love circulated through the air that night. And as cheesy as that sounds, it’s the truth.

Welcome back, Gen ArtWith open arms.
