The month of March in Los Angeles has been craved out to be significant to many fashion designers as “Fashion month in L.A.” for over a decade. Numerous fashion presentations throughout the city have ignited since the departure of SMASHBOX presented by Mercedes Benz. L.A. Fashion Weekend at Sunset Gower Studios has taken the lead with producing successful runway fashion events for several years.
Mikey Koffman has personally crafted L.A. Fashion Weekend into a major launch pad for local and international designers. “LAFW and KTLA 5 serve as a platform for these designers to catapult their collections into a larger fashion marketplace and imprint their designs upon an international audience,” states Koffman.
L.A. definitely is a hot spot, when it comes to new styles and fashion trends with apparel, hair and cosmetics. Our designer favorites at L.A. Fashion Weekend at Sunset Gower Studios were Betsey Johnson, Dina Bar-El and Ashlee Brooks.
Betsey Johnson fashion presentations are always exciting. To have her present her news looks for Fall 2012 at L.A. Fashion Weekend at Gower Studios is a big plus. In 1978, revived by the punk movement, Johnson partnered with ex-model Chantal Bacon to start their own company, the Betsey Johnson label. Together they opened Johnson’s first retail store in Manhattan’s fashionable SoHo neighborhood. Since its inception, the Betsey Johnson label has grown steadily in size and reputation. The company currently has 65 stores worldwide, including locations in London, Toronto and Tokyo.
Dina Bar-El has timeless evening looks, sure to capture the crowd with her long flowing dresses in stunning colors that are absolutely a must for every woman’s wardrobe. Link into Dina’s world at http://www.dinabarel.com
