Porsche + Fashion = A perfect combination don't you think?
I was lucky enough (Thank you Jay!) to be invited to The Gallery LA X Beverly Hills Porsche Fashion's Night Out (FNO) event this past Thursday, September 6, 2012. From the get-go, I arrived to a packed crowed all waiting to get in and everyone was decked out to the nines (as they should be)! Finally, an LA fashion event that isn't filled with T shirts and Jeans. Beverly Hills Porsche and Marketing Director Jerome Huffschmidt definitely brought the class factor! I believed by the end of the night, over 500 people were in attendance where the historic LA landmark (CLOCK MARKET) transformed into the location of the hottest runway shows of the season. Another win for Mikey Koffman, the producer of L.A. Fashion Weekend & The Gallery LA.
Sponsored by Wella Professionals with beauty treatments from Nine Zero One Salon and Napoleon Perdis, California Apparel News, The LA Fashion magazine, and American Gentlemen were all present to show their support of the event. Drinks flowed freely throughout the night from Little Black Dress Vodka. And while I think NOBU was suppose to be in the building, I never got a chance to taste any of the food.
I was particular drawn to the collection of Anthony Franco, showing tailored 3 piece suiting for men in innovative fabrications and glamorous evening gowns for his counterpart with a slight 007/Bond + Femme Fatale undertone. The looks were sleek and polished, a bit 70's reminiscent of a Tom Ford aesthetic - glam, sexy, chic.
Overall, I had an amazing time at the event and felt so inspired and creatively rejuvenated, I went home and started to design my own collection. Perhaps next year at this time, you'll get a chance to see my collection on a runway near you!
So, if you know any angel investors...haha...feel free to have them contact me! Kidding but ACTUALLY NOT. Quite serious about it!
