Two Point Oh LA + Fashion Los Angeles to the Rescue: BC911 Designer Presentation

 On Saturday October 23, I was able to attend a last minute LAFW Designer Presentation held by Two Point Oh LA and Fashion Los Angeles.  This event turned out to be such a lovely gathering where I got to mingle with some of my fellow bloggers, make new friends, and also got to meet and chat with three very talented designers.  Pauina Lopez, Anh Voleck, and Daisy Gonzalez were all supposed to show their collections at another fashion show event, however the whole event was cancelled VERY last minute.  Two Point Oh LA and Fashion Los Angeles along with a group of wonderful volunteers came to the rescue to help these designers.

Fashion Designer Paulina Lopez is based in Mexico city, she showed us her collection called "Rainbow".  Pictured above is one of Paulina's designs, and below (L to R) model wearing draped dress with the designer, and model wearing  a long dress featuring a woven fabric technique. 
  
Anh Voleck
 Anh Voleck has established her line called Lʼune, French for “the one”, her collection features dresses and separates which combine European draping techniques with an updated American flair.  I personally loved her use of feathers, and how they added major drama to her modern pieces.  Pictured above is the lovely designer showing me one of her designs, below model in  L'une. 
 

 Daisy Gonzalez
 
Designer Daisy Gonzalez resides in Los Angeles, but has clients throughout the United States and Latin America.  I have to say that this was my favorite collection.  I loved, loved, loved the luxurious fabrics she used, and the way she mixed the heavier fabrics with the lighter sheer fabrics so effortlessly.  Also, must I say that I am obsessed with anything sheer right now!  This wonderful collection left me wanting to see more, yes especially those beautiful sheer pieces, including a pair of sheer tap shorts displayed on her rack (seen here). Pictured above Model in design by Daisy Gonzalez, and the designer.  Below: models in Daisy Gonzalez, wearing "Cristal Malone" statement jewelery by Francisco De La Costa Garcia

 Blogger Gals
These events are the best, because I get to catch up with my blogger gals and always get meet new ones.  It's pretty cool when you can meet new people who share the same interest as you, believe me you can chat and laugh for hours and hours with out even realizing it!
