LAFW SS17 RECAP

 

This season, I had the honor of being one of LA Fashion Week's ambassadors. For three nights straight, I was granted VIP access backstage to check out the chaotic yet beautiful hair, makeup and wardrobe process. Through this opportunity, I met so many talented artists and fashionistas and even made some really good friends along the way! From beads and sparkle, to fringe and vibrant colors, the variety of the runway shows were refreshing to see. There are so many talented independent designers here in Los Angeles that don't get the recognition they deserve. It was a real pleasure to witness such creativity and finesse from the front row. I look forward to watching Los Angeles Fashion Week continue to grow over the years.

Take a look at some of my favorite looks and moments from fashion week shot by Sean Martin:
