Last week at Style LA Fashion Week, Altaf Maaneshia showed his collection before Betsey Johnson and it was fabulous! Opening the show, Maaneshia’s edgy collection captivated the runway with bold silhouettes, accents of color, sharp cuts and geometrical angles. I can totally see myself rocking some of these pieces! I absolutely loved the vibe!

I was supposed to meet with Altaf before his runway show for an interview, but unfortunately our timing didn’t work out and he was kind enough to answer my questions via email.
