If we learned anything from Miranda Priestly, it’s that fashion isn’t just about what you’re wearing, rather it’s more an expression of art. I was thrilled to be invited to the Opening Gala of LA Fashion Week, sponsored by O’gara with a VIP Lounge by The Agency.
The Gala kicked off a week of shows in Los Angeles that showcased up-and-coming designers and seasoned pros who were showing off their latest collections. However, what was just as impressive as the models sporting the avant garde styles that adorned them was the ambiance and decor of the event space, which itself was a work of art as well. The venue was entirely “New York-esque” in that it reminded me of being in a Tribeca loft rather than a ballroom on Sunset Boulevard.
Drinks with Bai were served and many photographers were littered throughout the room, expertly snapping photos of models and notable attendees. Because O’gara was the main sponsor for the evening, luxury vehicles also made a cameo, parked outside and available for guests to peek and see what was the newest in the world of high-end automobiles.
LA Fashion Week hasn’t quite reach New York or Milan status quite yet, but the unqiue approach it took this year to bring together a plethora of varied talents makes it one to watch in years to come.
