LA Fashion Week 2006 Fall Collection Runway Show @ Smashbox Studios
7th on Sixth/IMG and Smashbox Studios have done it again with another successful fashion week in Los Angeles, California. The event took place from March 19th-23rd at Smashbox Studios in all 25,000 sq. feet of their Culver City Warehouse. Eating, drinking, and breathing fashion for a week was harder than it sounds, but we came out alive and ready to dish the scoop. With so much ground to cover, it was hard to see everything but we’ve managed to give you the low-down on a few of our favorites.
Agent Provocateur Joseph Corre and Serena Rees sure know how to turn up the heat on the runway! Putting the R in risqué and an emphasis on the C in classy, models took to the runway in outfits that would rouse any sleeping animal within 50 feet. Garters, thigh-high stockings and decorative pasties seemed to be the name of the game and the “it” items for lingerie this fall. Now of course, we won’t look as stunning as the models did, but we definitely will feel just as hot as they were when we give them a shot.
Meghan Fall 2006 is all about mixing and matching texture and print for Meghan. Lace paired with retched satin, wild prints with simple satin, and simple satin with eye-catching beaded necklaces took over the runway and who would have thought that it would look good together? By the sound of it, not I, but Meghan has that knack for making it work.
Jennifer Nicholson Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles! That is what Jennifer Nicholson has in mind for Fall 2006. Presenting a nice blend of blues, blacks, whites, and golds, Nicholson’s line had a lot of variety. My favorite outfit was definitely the blue and gold striped robe dress with a plunging neck line and a gold belt holding it together. It gave a sense of sexy with a hint of un-tie me naughtiness. RRAAARRR!
Juan Carlos Obando Think black, whites and grays for the color scheme. Then think sophisticated, chic, and glamour and you have yourself the Fall 2006 collection of Juan Carlos Obando. No belly baring, cleavage showing models here. Rather sleek, slender and fully clothed models owned the runway. How do you make 3 simple colors into an entire collection? Let Juan be in charge and you will have no worries.
Joseph Domingo Frills and flowers and stripes, OHH MY! Joseph Domingo started out the night with a red frill-lined cardigan paired with a multi-colored flirty flowered skirt. Joseph even threw men into the mix to give the audience a taste of his men’s collection complete with paisley print pants and ribbed turtle necks. Can you say HOT?
YaYa Long, lengthy, and oh so beautiful! YaYa presents yet another fabulous collection with the focus being on floor length
coats, sweaters, and dresses. Every piece seemed to flow so nicely with the movement of the models making it seem effortless to walk in such dramatic lengths. The one thing always standing out in YaYa clothing is the comfort that each item seems to have. It’s possible to go from working to lounging without ever changing clothes. Who doesn’t mind that?
