Debora Pokallus is the CEO of Bel Espirit LLC an online international showroom for independent and emerging designers. She also created a High Fashion Event for Designers, artist, and filmmakers from around the world. That would be the Fashion Show Moda 360 - A Complete Fashion Revolution. The Event was held at the New Mart Showroom building in downtown LA.  Debora’s thought behind this fashion show was to find ethical fashion collections by emerging designers giving them the outlet to showcase their designs on a larger platform in the Fashion Industry.

Debora happily created Moda 360 for other artist like herself by combining fashion, art, music and film, to grab the audience’s attention from merging these genres.  Debora is a well respected Designer in her own right. I spoke with Debora as she explained for many years she designed clothing and finally her big job was when she worked on Broadway, where she hand sowed all of the nuns outfits for the Broadway Show, that put here in a league all her own.  Now she gives back by creating a platform for other artist to shine!

I went to the Open House the night before the Fashion Show, where I met some really wonderful people and ground breaking creative designer.

The first designer I met was also the Fashion Stylist for the Event.
