Planet Fashion TV hosted an amazing 2 days for Los Angeles Fashion Week, Waldorf Astoria, Beverly Hills.
The program featured fashion shows, gala gourmet dinners, a celebrity red carpet photo call, cocktail parties, and a bespoke gifting suite.
Over 20 designer collections and seasonal reveals featuring sustainable and eco-friendly brands were presented. Among them was a Project Runway alumni, celebrity red carpet favorites and Classic Commercial brands like Levis. The denim company has historically led the way to responsible fashion long before “sustainable fashion” entered the lexicon.
“As most of the fashion industry is recalibrating their business model from mass market ‘fast’ fashion to luxury, earth friendly brands, sustainability was the key to the strategic plans of many of our featured designers.
“We were thrilled to bring the excitement of East Coast based Planet Fashion TV to Los Angeles Fashion Week, making this truly a Bi-Coastal affair! We want to cast a light on ‘responsible fashion’ progress, ” confirms Celia Evans, from her studios in South Florida. “Los Angeles continues its emergence as an influential fashion capital with Miami tag teaming just behind, “ according to Melissa Shea of Fashion Mingle industry professional platform.
With LA’s dominance in the Movie and Media Industries, many among us take our fashion cues from our favorite actors and social media ‘Influencers’.
The event kicked off with a show from sustainable tech brand, Merci Dupre Clothier.
Oliver Tolentino, a sustainable eveningwear brand presented a jaw dropping collection of Haute Couture. Tolentino, is a celebrity favorite who has been worn by Carrie Underwood, Katie Couric, Brooke Burke, Jessica Alba, Kat Dennings, Kristin Cavallari, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Olivia Mun and more. Other featured designers included Dope Tavio, a Project Runway alum known for bold prints and silhouettes who has dressed both Eryka Badu and Janet Jackson for live performances and editorials. “Fashion Weeks have typically been focused on New York, Paris, Milan and London, but over the past few years we have seen more events pop up in off schedule cities like Miami and now Los Angeles,” said Cristian Roget editor-in-chief of All Fashion Press. “Planet Fashion TV has its finger on the pulse of where fashion is heading, so bringing Fashion Week to LA is a very smart move. The line up of designers looked really fresh and forward thinking.
