It's universally acknowledged that Mondays are not fun. In my opinion, there is no better way to spice up a Monday night than by doing something glamorous. I indulged this Monday and attended First L.A.'s Runway Fashion Show presented by Directives West at the L.A. Fashion Market (www.californiamarketcenter.com/fashion/). Located in the heart of the fashion district and across the street from FIDM, I had never before been to this building, which boasted offices, eateries, shops, sculptures, and a patio where the runway show was held.
Outside we enjoyed drinks and fashion from some of the best contemporary designers out there, including: Whitney Eve, YuYu, Twinkle, James Icon, Hazel, 50 Dresses, Dolan, Kolae, J Brand, Imposter, and Dolce Cabo.
My personal favorite is Kolae. See the orange maxi dress above? Genius. I had the privilege of meeting the designer's mom at the show as well. Super nice! Check out more of Kolae's duds at http://www.revolveclothing.com/. My friend Angela truly enjoyed the show as well. That's a pic of she and I in our spring best (I'm wearing Elizabeth & James and vintage jewelry). Afterward we headed down to Mas Malo (http://www.malorestaurant.com/) and enjoyed the best Mexican food. A night of indulging indeed.
My thanks to Directives West, the many designers and marketing officials who put on such a fabulous show, and my friends for joining me on a perfect evening. Monday may have been my favorite day this week : )
