We Spotted: Red Carpet Vintage Fashion Show

On Saturday, myself and Blogger/ Designer Vanessa of SweetLeigh attended the Art Institute of California-Hollywood's Red Carpet Vintage Fashion Show which celebrated 20 years of student design. Although the city was covered for the most part of the day with June Gloom, it in no way impeded upon the crispness of the show.

Held on the rooftop of the parking structure, guest were treated to an amazing 360 degree view of Los Angeles, in addition to a beautiful white runway lined with covered seating. From my previous experience attending school fashion shows, I was utterly impressed with the professional set up, coverage and marketing of the event. With students contributing to all aspects of the show: from the brochure, to set design, photography, even catering, in no way did I feel as if amateurs had a hand in the show. Clearly, AI is all about quality.

Having positive first impressions setting precedence and a body moving soundtrack of music (which I wish was for sale) being played, I was so ready to see what was in store for us.

Take a front row look at the slide show, and you be the judge...

While I thoroughly enjoyed almost every look that graced the runway, by far my favorite designers were: Angela Fuentes with her 1930's inspired collection that screamed San Francisco; Florianne Magcawas' cream, butter and lemon colored 1950's jacket, skirt, and frocks; Tam Kalajian 1950's inspired wedding dresses of varied lengths with enormous bow detailing; and all of the 1960's designers, Jiyai Cao, Fernanda del Martin Campo, and Mae Ballares, but especially Alison Magrane's punchy hot pink, lime green, black and white mod collection which looked to be fashioned from oil cloth.

Many Thanks to Event Manager Adam Lenehan for accommodations!
