I love the colors used in this collection. The bikini’s were beautifully cut and texture and interest were added via the use of layered ruffles, scalloped edges and lace trim.
Co Founder of Style Fashion Week, Veronica Welch + Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti
Sunday night was the start of Fashion Week in Los Angeles. Veronica Welch, co founder of Style Fashion Week, jump started the festivities by introducing Mayor Eric Garcetti who gave an encouraging speech about the role Los Angeles plays in the fashion industry and it’s ongoing transformation into a fashion capital.
Ina Soltani is an LA based designer and FIDM graduate who has created gowns for several celebrities in the past. Her collection for Fall/Winter 2014 featured neutral tones of black, silver and creme. This palette is one of my favorites, and Ina’s show was also a favorite during Style Fashion Week. Featuring sheers, and second skin stretch fabrics in black and silver, Soltani’s Autumn/Winter collection was edgy and classy at the same time, which can sometimes be a hard combination to pull off. The collection ran the gamut from grecian inspired empire waist gowns, to second skin cropped leather pants and black leather jackets with with draped chains. I loved the combination of sheer fabrics with leather, as well as the draping used on the gowns. The pieces were wearable and the collection was cohesive.
