Young professionals, fashion enthusiasts, and trendsetters converged at the Los Angeles Supper Club Tuesday night to attend the highly anticipated LA in A Day Fashion Show. Wall to wall the venue was filled with guests dressed in their best garments, creatively displaying chic style and professional grandieur.
This year’s show, presented by the Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals and Fashion Speaks, was nothing less than visually amazing. A cornucopia of fashion, music, dance and dramatic visual effects kept attendees completely engaged from start to finish, and presented a breathtaking show that represented all genres of fashion.
Signaling the beginning of the show, the lights dimmed and onlookers were presented with a modern dance sequence spotlighting performers—dressed in all-white garb embellished with flowers and gold—as they moved to the heart pounding beats radiating from the sound system.
As the show proceeded, designers showcased their lines, featuring floor-length gowns, couture day wear, curated menswear and swimwear.
The show, now in its third year, lived up to its name and aptly covered all aspects of Los Angeles in a day.
Designers included J. Loren, Zalez Studio, Krammer & Stoudt, Candy Coated Swimwear, Nikki Couture, Merlin Castell, and Nour Amini.
Designer Nikki Couture of Supreme Style House of Style shares the inspiration for her line which was filled with flowy jumpsuits, wide leg pants and dresses.
“This collection... I was inspired by “Mahogany.” Where would she (fashion designer Tracy Chambers, played by Diana Ross) be today? What would she be wearing today? How would she look? She was such a show stopper. Even if she was in a jumpsuit running morning errands, she would still be dressed to the max. This collection is Mahogany Urban Street Safari. She was such a knockout, and I wanted to present that tonight.”
Nikki Couture’s collection is for today’s woman who lives to be dressed, glamorous and beautiful.
Abby Harris, president of the Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals notes her favorite part of the event was the incorporation of couture designers and models into an already amazing platform. “I am excited to be able to offer new designers and bring back many of our fan favorites,” she said.
The LA in a Day Fashion Show provided opportunity and a stage for up-and-coming and breakout designers to be showcased in a premier venue with optimal exposure.
