LA Fashion Council Presents

On Thursday afternoon, March 7th, in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, LA Fashion Week was in full effect as collections from SOLDAT, 8000 Nerves, and Odylyne created a dynamic and visually pleasing platform that showcased exactly when it means when you put your heart and free-spirited creative energy into clothing design. Hosted by LA Fashion Council, the collections featured exclusive fall fashion that garnered attention from LA Times journalists to some of LA's finest fashion bloggers ready to capture and document the snapshots of what to expect for the coming season. As I made my way through the show room, I couldn't help but pay attention to the stylish crowd of guests that were mingling with one another. From the loud prints of color to the bold hairstyles, and wildly assessorized individuals I saw, the crowd was a clear emodiment of what LA Fashion Week encompasses.

SOLDAT Fall Collection

I strolled towards the SOLDAT collection which was beautifully displayed on the rack. SOLDAT, which means "solider" in Swedish, is a collection of edgy eco suits and separates that assist creative women to dress professionally in the corporate world but still have keep a unique and luxurious flair. The designer, Camilla Wright, created SOLDAT as a homage to all the real soldiers who put on their uniforms to defend our freedom. Utilizing organic material while creating a luxurious yet comfortable brand, SOLDAT trailoring has proved Camilla to also be a freedom advocator to females in creative industries who wish to expressing their unique tastes. has also allowed all female creative enthusiasts to celebrate their freedom. 

The drinks are on Peroni

After appreciating the SOLDAT Collection, I stepped towards the bar and found Peroni drinks on the bar, ready to be served. How lovely to know that Peroni is a fan of LA Fashion Council as well. 

Kelsi Smith, the director of LA Fashion Council, made her way towards the bar.

We just so happened to be eyeing the last lunch bag on the table, and Kelsi so graciously offered me to take it. I introduced myself and complimented her flowy Greecian goddess-like dress, which I had assumed she had worn to walk down the runway with. "It's from the Odylyne collection," she said beamingly with a soft laughter. Odylyne is derived from all things beautiful. The designers pride themselves in creating material that "just feels good and makes being a goddess pretty damn effortless." As Kelsi's attire was a prime example of Odylyne's ease of complimenting the individual wearing their collection, I would agree in the beauty that Odylyne captures. 

Photographers getting ready to capture the designs

As the crowd got ready for the first showcase, the photographers queued the front of the runway, eager to see what the designers were going to unveil. The show began with flick of a spotlight as a soft rock tempo danced its way out of the speakers and onto the runway. The first model looked illuminating in her 8000 Nerves attire, which featured  a knitted, loungy nude sweater that was complimented by a classy black see-through, floor-length skirt. It was the perfect emodiment of chic.
