Coco Chanel at Fashion Fright Out

Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel - Clothing Designer

Friday I attended LA Fashion Council's Fashions Fright Out at the W Hotel in Westwood.  I honeslty don't celebrate Halloween but when fashion meets costumes, I had to be apart of this.  It was quite easy for me to decided what I wanted to be for this event.  It just popped into my head and I went to town making my dress.  I honestly look and look for the best detailed pictures of Coco Chanel but they were hard to come by.  So I did my best in putting together her iconic picture outfits.  I hope I made my costume designer friend, Glinda proud ;)

This woman was a huge smoker, making it almost impossible not to incorporate a fake cigarette into the costume.  With that said, I do NOT APPROVE of smoking, considering both my grandfather's died of lung cancer way before their time I think.  Anyways, the evening was so much fun. Loved hanging out with the lovely gals of TPOLA.  Here are the rest of the pictures from that night. (had to do these in black and white)

  Los Angeles Fashion Council - Spring 2013 Collections

Well hello Lovelies! You guys still out there?  Once again it's been a month to the date since my last post.  I am one crazy busy person with a huge broken laptop that I can't take to bed anymore to blog.  Therefore my blog timing is really off.

Anyways, enough of my little guilt trip.  As some of you may know we are still in the middle of LA fashion week. As much as I would love to attend all the shows and events, duty (work) calls here at the office/ studio.  I was fortunate though, to attend a couple of shows hosted by  Los Angeles Fashion Council .

The events were held at the Carondelet in Los Angeles, which seem to be a beautiful old mansion with it's creepy details.  Sorry, I'm the biggest chicken that ever walked this earth.

Ummm..creeeepy. (ha)

The event seem to go on without a hitch.  Granted some delays are only excepted at a fashion show but I must say from a designers view point this was one of the best fashion shows I've ever attended and trust me I've attend plenty of different fashion shows in my hay day.  From Smash Box to Gen Art (when it was on a popping).

Other highlights.

With Melissa from The Key To Chic

My full outfit (dress/ H&M, skirt/ Melissa Velia, suede booties/ Andrea)

The following day I was suppose to attend other events like RAW and Project Ethos to watch my lovely friend Marialia present her Spring 2013 collection but thanks to the rain, the 10 fwy, and not knowing
how to use my iphone map app., I never made it to those shows.  I ended the night with Los Angeles Fashion Council after party at the W in Westwood.  Over all it was great hanging out with new friends and old, surrounded in this great industry that is fashion.

Coming up from my world, video details about my last casting call and my upcoming Pop-up Shop in Los Angeles.

Xo, Lovelies!
