Lana Fuchs star studded Mercedes Benz Los Angeles Fashion Week Spring 2009 show was the highlight of my day
The Lana Fuchs show was the highlight of my day at the Mercedes Benz Los Angeles Fashion Week today. After parking at the Trader Joe’s lot and waiting forever for a shuttle bus to pick us up. I finally got to Smashbox Studios to find myself walking around looking for the credentials office before I could check in. Once checked in, I relaxed and looked around.
It was fun, not too crowded in the afternoon with some models from America’s Next Top Model, and a few young celebrities milling about chatting with the press before the shows. Hint flavor infused water sponsored the event which made the 80 plus degrees bearable today. Flor de Cana provided an open bar with Rose’s Cocktail Infusions which got the party hopping.
I chatted with Phoebe Price who is now doing her own line of peacock feather headbands that are selling at celebrity favorite stores Madison on Robertson, and Planet Blue in Malibu. They look pretty cool. Very Mary Kate Olsen if you ask me.
Once inside the Main Tent, I scanned the room for the celebrities and took a few photos for you. Katie Gill from Drillbit Taylor, and Minna, Australian Singer Songwriter are in one of my photos. Maybe you can help me identify some of these younger new celebrities in my other photos. (Comments are welcome.) Also, I took a photo of Lamar Odom of the Lakers in the front row. I lucked out and got great seats, thus all the great photos.
According to Lana Fuchs: The Spring 2009 Collection entitled “Rhapsody In Bloom” was inspired by the breathtaking views during a romantic walk through the gardens of Claude Monet’s house in Giverny, France, and the myriad of vivid colored saris seen while traveling from Udaipur to Jaipur, India.
I thought her pieces were definitely magical. My favorites were the large hoop dresses in black and electric blue that were reminsicent of scenes from Miller’s an American in Paris. I loved the range of her collection from the gunmetal contemporary halter to the exquisite lace tunic dresses. Everything in her collection was couture art that could be worn.
After party was at the Stork with special Guest DJ Joel Madden. It was a cool night.
P.S. I intentionally skipped the Lauren Conrad Spring 2009 Fashion Show at 8P.
