Fashion Week LA: Day Four

Bri Seeley
Thursday's line up began with a few of the stars from Phoenix Fashion Week, an up an coming concept of Fashion Week that soon will be adapted by others. Phoenix Fashion Week included buyer and designer interaction, mentors and an actual contest! The designer of the year award went to Seattle-based Bri Seeley who showcased last night at the Vibiana.  Her line of fun and flirty sundresses and bold blues along with the temperature yesterday, made me think it was already Spring 2013. Bri spent two year in Italy where she earned her fashion design degree.  She is one of the many designers showing at Fashion Week LA that believes in the 'Made in America' movement and bringing production back to the United States. Her line is extremely sought after based on the construction, femininity and wearability.

Next up was a literally moving performance b JHaus Brand, a premium denim line originally based in Nebraska now Los Angeles based.  Our rocker violinist from a previous show and concept dancers performed up and down the catwalk to Katy Perry's "E.T." JHaus's JLynn believes in the concept of using materials at hand and proved this as she sent a chicken wire backed denim evening gown as well as a dress made entirely of corn kernels down the runway.  Another nod to the American rooted movement.
Kaitlyn Fitzgerald with her line.
Moving through the theme of Made in America as well as young talent, the youngest talent to show at Fashion Week was 17 year old Kaitlyn Fitzgerald of KAIT blu, a detailed line of separates with bold prints combined with heavy neutrals.  Originally catching the eye of Style Fashion Week's producer, Arianna Sinclair, Ms. Fitzgerald was commissioned to deliver eight flawlessly stunning outfits at yesterday's showcase.
Patuna Bushyhead, a seasoned evening gown Georgian designer, featured her Spring line of gowns with intense Swarovski crystal embellished fastenings and multi-fabric construction to lend both  continuity and romance to each piece. Her colors were evocative of nature as well as Victorian vintage.
Another designer to grab inspiration from nature, the line from Quynh Paris brought synergy to avant garde and ready to wear through her line of gowns and detailed jumpsuits with such high contraction, one piece looked as though it were floating on the model.

Ending the night of talent was ASH Haute Couture beginning with a belly dance performance fitting with the cultural influence of the designer herself. Ashna Kalra's line featured colors inspired by fabrics and colors in the East India region colliding with structure from Paris with the ease of American ready to wear.
It certainly was an entertaining fourth day with the ever capable artists who showed.
