LA’s Covert Spring Fashion Week

When people tell us we have no fashion week in LA, we like to turn to them say…. We actually do, it’s called Oscar Week: aka the biggest moment in fashion all year long. Well, aside from that we also have two secondary periods of note where fashion shines in Los Angeles.

After fashion brands complete their runway shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris, many make a trip to Los Angeles every March to promote their spring collections. Though we no longer have an official fashion week in LA, most good brands will typically put together a little something for their LA base (shoppers, stylists, and press) … Usually it will be a preview, luncheon, in-store party, tea party, or private dinner. Favorite venues are always brand’s showrooms or stores, but hotels like Soho House, Chateau Marmont are the norm as well … Or in the case of Dior this month, they borrowed space from Maxfield’s on Melrose.

Maxfield hosts Dior’s Spring / Summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection

Christian Dior’s debuted their Spring 2013 in Los Angeles on March 20th at Maxfield’s on Melrose (CD has previewed several worldwide pop-ups this seasons for Raf Simons’ first ready-to-wear collection for the brand). The event was hosted by Quinn Ezralow, Julia Sorkin and Kelly Styne. Spotted: Brooke Davenport, Leandra Medine (of The Man Repeller), Dior’s Stacey Kubasak and Liberty Ross.

L.K. Bennett’s Spring/Summer 2013 Tea at Soho House

Actress Rosamund Pike (the face of L.K. Bennett’s Spring/Summer 2013 campaign) hosted a cozy tea party at Soho House on March 14th to help launch  the first LA store for L.K. Bennett (tucked across from Brookstone in the Beverly Center). What few know about this popular British brand is that it was once a single store in Wimbleton where London’s social and actual royalty would stop off to pick up extras while at the tennis tourneys. Spotted: Teri Hatcher, Radha Mitchell, Leven Rambin, Christa B. Allen, Poppy Delevingne, Sanaa Lathan, Zuleikha Robinson and Cara Santana.

Kate is great

Kate is great

If you love Kate Moss, pool toys and ladies lingerie you will love the new Mario Testino show at PRISM Gallery. We went to opening night over the weekend and a no big deal after party at the Saperstein mansion afterward (better known as “Fleur des Lys“), thrown by the gallery and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
