This week here at A Valid Review we ventured out to Los Angeles, C.A. and attended Los Angeles Fashion Week powered by Art Hearts Fashion and The Aids Healthcare Foundation. They provided the attendees of the fashion world a beautiful venue with a full runway at the Park Plaza Hotel in Downtown, L.A.
As you walked into the main lobby you immediately noticed the huge red-carpeted steps with wearable and canvas paintings displayed. To the right of me was the photography portion red carpet and to my left, the lounge area where guests could buy drinks and mingle, which lead to the back of their side patio area that was tented so none of the guests were rained on, just in case mother nature decides to give us all a shower. Up the elevator on the second floor was another lobby area with more artwork by various artists and a few models dashing about to take photos before the show.
Inside the main venue, the media riser was filled with at least 60 lenses, SHOWTIME! The lights dim and the walk begins. Each garment walking down the runway looked and fit each model to the T. The vibrancy of colors on each model almost made you forget you were watching the show indoors. Each day brought you something different to look and be in awe of designers from the U.S., Australia, Mexico, Bangladesh, Malta and other exotic countries around the world, definitely somewhere you wanted to be.
The final day was spent honoring designer Sue Wong for her 50 years in the business of fashion and the creator of Art Hearts Fashion Mister Triple X, paving a way and giving a platform for aspiring models to hone in on their skills, who weren’t 5’6”, size 0-3 and be seen in their light. Ms. Wong gave us a runway show for the final day we should soon not forget, with more than 70 looks and over the top headpieces! The show closed with Mister Triple X’s Air Force inspired collection, it was yet again another breath of fresh air in fashion. What he and Sue Wong share in common are their tastes to stand out.
Being different is great, however, when you stand out you give a lasting impression to any and everyone in the room. – KayDotsLens
