Concept Fashion Week in L.A. & Prom Dresses you’ll love on a budget

by Taja Scott on Mar 21st, 2011 in Designers, Events, Tips

Talk about many events in one, Los Angeles had its own fashion week, in over the last 10 days or so, showcasing designers work in various types of events. It was a perfect event put on for the media and buyers.

Designers like Mike Vensel and Valerj Pobega had the opportunity to show some of their most recent work in a gallery for many people. The L.A. Times says, “Mike Vensel showed two vivid red dresses worn by models perched on a large rock. Valerj Pobega’s line was vaudeville meets 1930s Berlin, with green wool army blanket-looking capes that had medallion brooches at the neck and were painted with star graphics. Models wore Marilyn Manson-esque running eye makeup and bondage-inspired dresses festooned with undulating ruffled collars.”

Mike Vensel vivid dresses had a meaning behind them. The colors black and red were inspired by two very different sources.  The Mid Century Modern Architect Mies van der Rohe’s Crown Hall and the fluid colorful simplicity of the African Maasai tribal clothing. It’s struture and simplcity helped to explore his cretive abilites. “From function and color, Mike Vensel created silhouettes in the most minimal forms, void of unnecessary closures, excessive sewing and ornate details. Creating wearable clothes with some artistic touches, Mike Vensel continues to expand his fan base season after season.”
At the Ace gallery second- floor mid-Wilshire hosted several artists like the Date Farmers for the season’s inaugural event March 11, which drew a crowd. They are a two man duo from Indio, California. The Date Farmers are Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez. Their name was coined early in their careers after joining artistic forces in 1998. Paintings, collages, and sculptures, are infused with both commercial references and political content. “Rooted in their Mexican-American heritage and Californian pop culture, their work contains elements influenced by graffiti, Mexican street murals, traditional revolutionary posters, prison art, Oaxacan sign painting, and tattoo art.”
