Move Over NYFW (for now): Fashion Week Los Angeles is Here

posted on: October 2, 2010

I made it back to LA right in time for Los Angeles Fashion Week which right around the corner. Spring 2011 Collections are slated for October 13-20 throughout different areas in Los Angeles: Standard Hotel downtown, MOCA Geffen Contemporary, California Market Center, Paramount Studios, etc.

The schedule is posted here.

My last appearance to LA Fashion Week was when I left in 2008, also when the five-year partnership between IMG and Smashbox Studios folded its Culver City tents in October 2008. But enough of that news!

I admire fashion designers but, I am loyal to accessories designers – I guess its because accessories gives you the freedom to personalize your look to YOUR look, right? right!. Plus, it’s all imagination, you can play with a necklace and use it as a belt. During my time in NY I fell in love with FENTON FALLON, EDDIE BORGO, PAMELA LOVE JEWELRY all of whom are NY based accessories designers. I was thinking of LA based designers and immediately thought of TARINA TARANTINO. I had the pleasure of meeting her at the Candice Held fashion show back in 2008. And, its amazing how big her private business has grown. “Good for you!” She opened shop in Japan, Korea (I just got back so I would know), and she’s been doing many other interesting things. I LOVE HELLO KITTY, but that’s not the only reason I fancy her collection – see for yourself…

Kate Kate Bosworth and Celeb Stylist Pal (Cher Coulter) also launched a social shopping jewelry site JewelMint.com.

“It’s a natual extension of our friendship, our creative relationship and our love of fashion.” says Kate. “We couldn’t be more excited.” Read more here.

I hope to discover more designers this year! Know of any??
