LA Fashion Week: Setting Trends in Fashion and Philosophy by Nina Thomas

On the “coattails” of the Paris, Milan, London and New York shows, LA interprets spring fashion in uniquely SoCal style.

Transparency is a trend that LA understands: from Prada’s clear vinyl satchels to sheer and flouncy frocks, sunny Californians are at ease with baring their bodies and souls, right down to the contents of their handbags.

They also think Pink in all shades of pale as a reverent nod to Breast Cancer Awareness.

LA is in love with lace and metallics, and Angelenos everywhere go for “baroque”.

Always on the edge, LA loves to cut the fluff and glitz with a shot of Military/Aviator/Motorcycle leathers, even for spring. Think Earhart/ Brando.

There is another kind of trend that LA Fashion Week represents—a philosophy of conscientiousness shared by Project Artisan.

LA and PA do indeed think alike, with these core values in common:

Both celebrate the Indie Spirit by showcasing emerging designers.

Each curates Eco-Collections that use organic, local, and re-purposed materials.

They both take a stand for ethical designers who practice fair labor.

It feels so good to think about supporting people and the environment as we think ahead to spring…ahhh, California Dreamin’ on such a winter’s day!
