I have been posting videos from the Spring 2012 Collections at Los Angeles Fashion Week as those collections are coming into the stores right now! But let’s not forget that Los Angeles Fashion Week for Fall 2012 is going on all this week and I will again be covering it all for you!
My focus will be on the events produced by Style Fashion Week LA, now in its third season in a row! As with the previous two seasons, Style Fashion Week LA will be held downtown at Vibiana (214 S. Main Street), a historic cathedral that was turned into a wonderful event space. The six day event will feature daily exhibits of featured artists, signature cocktails, luxury product displays and of course world class fashion shows by designers from Los Angeles and New York to Dubai!
The week will kick off tonight with a VIP invite only reception at a private estate in Bel Air, benefitting Hollywood Arts, a non-profit organization that supports underprivileged youth through arts-based learning. The evening will include a Gibson sponsored performance by itunes sensation Tim Blaine, Louis XIII Cognac tasting, a jewelry showcase by exclusive jeweler Martin Katz, handcrafted artisan chocolates by Knipschildt, a chocolate fountain by Brunch Butler, freshly prepared cuisine by French Master Chef Philippe Forcioli of the famed Orient Express, Jean Georges and Cipriani and the Vintage Yachting Club will be offering memberships to their elite global yachting excursions! In addition, the Getty publication “Herb Ritts: L.A. Style”, a collection of portraits and nudes from the famed photographer and related to an upcoming exhibit on Ritts at the Getty Center in April will be on display, as well as original cover art from famed Beatles Illustrator Alan Aldridge and sculptures from artist Niki Sabet.
Starting Monday evening, the week of fantastic runway shows will kick off with the Fall 2012 Collections of Stop Staring! and Ina Soltani. The week will continue with shows by XCVI, L’une by Anh Volcek, Madison Park Collective, Skingraft, MILA , Octavio Carlin and Dubai designer Furne One’s Amato!
