Saturday night was the LAFW Design Competiton in DTLA and what an experience! There were 10 finalists and Dom, winner of Project Runway Season 12, all showing their latest collections. The energy was high and it was a feast for the eyes! When the evening began with a beautiful ballerina doing a Contemporary dance to one of my favorite songs, Paris is Burning by St. Vincent, I knew it was going to be a good night!
Jessica Huerta had an edgy, rocker vibe with lots of clear panels offering a peek-a-boo of skin. It was the perfect way to start the show!
Madeline K. Smith had a very fun, elegant and wearable collection.
Delaya Briscoe had a modern edge that really spoke to me. I sat next to the young model pictured aboves parents. Her name is Lillian and she is so fierce!
Amber Aleyna I loved this resort wear collection. I could of used some of these pieces in Hawaii!
Shabnam Q had all of these fun, girlie pieces in bold, graphic prints that stole my heart.
Julieta Kleven Ok, definitely one of my faves. I LOVE avant garde looks and these were spectacular! Lillian wore a look from this collection as well and totally rocked it!
Tooie Zimmerman What can I say…I am a sucker for black and white!
Michelle Uberreste really rocked my world with her unusual designs.
Joshua Ugarte did magical things with layers. His looks were edgy yet romantic.
Veejay Floresca was the winner! I loved this look and would totally rock it!
Bonus!! Dom, winner of Project Runway season 12 showed her latest collection!
