Hollyrod Foundation Design Care 2015 #StylistDiaries #20Models #Charity #AutismAwareness

I’ve ditched all my vices these days in favor of becoming an adrenaline junkie. There is nothing more exhilarating in my life than being thrown into an extreme situation. I live for it. That’swhy when I get offered a 20 model fashion show, I can NEVER say no.

When I was asked to help out with the amazing yearly Hollyrod Foundation Designcare 2015 event to tap a quality designer I said yes. In the past they have worked with fashion superstars such as Naem Khan and Emmauel Ungaro. Finding a fit in Los Angeles would be difficult but not impossible. I have great connections, and know even better designers. I tapped the stunningly talented Adolfo Sanchez and within 24 hours he and the amazing , Holly Peete Robinson and Hollyrod Foundation were working together.

Once you commit and find someone that is high caliber to a charity event this size things get out of control. First you get the designer, than you get tapped to help, than you are the Key Stylist for 20 models, in 20 looks with two personal assistants. The models were gorgeous, the dresses were beautiful, and made me remember why I got in this business 8+ years ago, and the cause was worth working for.

 

Backstage was small but we managed to get all the girls in their dresses and looking stunning. All the headpieces, crowns, etc were provided by the lovely Fiori Couture. She makes the most magical fantasy pieces of couture you have ever seen.

Believe it or not this hot mess turns into the most beautiful, and well coordinated show you have ever seen. This is what we managed.

Overall this was a fantastic event to be part of. I got to be head/Key Stylist, had amazing assistants and co-workers .

HUGE thanks to Traci May Wagner for taking over backstage, she is an OG industry professional who works around the world and I was lucky to have her.

Marie Bargas and Drea Johnson for helping me. Dressing models in dresses with 15-foot trains is no joke.

Special thanks to the Hollyrod Foundation for including me in their event. They are amazingly professional, and they are doing their part to help educate families and children with Autism and give them the tools they need to to be strong, and overcome adversity and learning disability.

Dripped LA Fashion Soiree at SupperClub LA #Fab #Fashion #Elite #Runway

Dripped Show

Being so busy I forgot to do a review on a great fashion show I recently was part of here in the heart of Hollywood at Supperclub. It was smart, well put together and all about the elite.

I might have not gone had it not been for the fact, the talented and tres chic, Adolfo Sanchez, had an installation there. Adolfo has been taking the international fashion market by storm. With several seasons worth of shows at NYFW, national coverage and of course a recent trip to Turkey and Western Europe, Adolfo Sanchez has broadened his lines availability and now works on couture as well.

Check out his line here, because they are soooo very. Adolfo Sanchez Designs

In fact that was the first thing I saw as I walked in the door.

After a meet, greet and air kisses Adolfo and I looked on while his well-kilted assistant adjusted the installation before opening.

And open it did. The Dripped Soiree was packed and everyone was there from stylist and business entrepreneur Eric Burns, of Prep Jerks, Inc., Marianne Geisha Of GGeisha Productions and the style crew that included my long-lost friend Malakai.

After an hour or so of mingling and drinking the crowd was restless. We were thankfully rescued by being ushered into the main floor. The 5 designers presenting; Madem Black, Staci Sherri, J Loren, Reckor and FROCK LA. Allof the designers were on their game but my personal fave’s that  stood out were Madem Black, J. Loren and Frock.

With a full rubber and latex collection Madem Black kicked off with delicious diva’s in rubber, latex and PVC. Letting the imagination run wild she presented outfits with peek-a-boo latex lattices. One or two pieces even left nothing to the imaginations created from see through PVC and rubber. As it should when bringing the sexy. Between the spikes and latex everyone’s jaw appropriately dropped and Madem Black left us with a sexy taste in our mouth.

J. Loren brought the 60’s kitsch with gorgeous body-con dresses. With angular shoulders, J. Loren created sexy silhouettes bringing to mind Mad Men. Although some dresses were color blocked (and well) most were divided with loud prints and black lined figures, reflecting early 60’s sectional couture. A must have in my wardrobe. It was indeed, perfect skinny girl clothing.

Frock LA, was devastating.

They ended the show with a presentation that rivals most NYFW shows. Classic elegance, embodied in a ethnic chic. Tall, lengthy girls taking the time to not only show off their lengthy gowns but pose in the moment. Sadly I only got the first few models on the runway in video but they ended the show in absolute perfection.

Huge thanks to all involved, especially GGeisha Marianne and crew. I will be covering Frock LA when Dad’s Day is over.

Adolfo Sanchez SS 2013 Collection From #NYFW

I love following the careers of designers who are friends. Seeing them struggle to make it in to such a tight-knit world. Then next day showing designs on #NYFW. This bitch is proud.

Adolfo Sanchez is no longer someone to watch for but to be watched. His designs cross the border from pret-a-porter to couture. Constantly ahead of the trend and never afraid to create unique and fresh designs.

This year Adolfo Sanchez showed his collections at the Chelsea Piers with a collection that reflected on the organic with elements of the ocean. Staying on trend we saw monochromatic mixed with dashes of coral, and tons of sexy skin.

Below is the entire collection for SS 2013.
