+PLAIDfashionevent

Saturday was a runaround from the fabric district to pick up trims and fabrics, to the Plaid Fashion Show, and then to Belasco's to see Mario perform! A big thanks to my bestie Arthur Trujillo, who is always up to date on these fashion shows. See his blog here http://trujillofashion.tumblr.com/.  See photos from the event below!

Photos from Plaid's one year anniversary with designers: Marco Marco, Ashton Michael, Scout, Pretty Star, and  Artstring. Many fashion goers definitely rocked the scene. Many trends from shaved sided hair lines, to platform heels, etc.

First designer of the night was Pretty Star:


Designer: Scout

Designer: Artstring


Designer: Ashton Michael
 Arthur Trujillo just did a blog on him. Read up on this to see where's he gone and who he's designed for. A very talented designer. http://trujillofashion.tumblr.com/page/2


Designer: Marco Marco

My photo was taken for www.lookbookLA.com. I'll post the photo when it's available. 

So that was just part of the night. I rushed home to enjoy Mario at Belasco with my sisters.
