Mila Hermanovski: Fashion Week Los Angeles FW15 Presentation






It was a nice treat to have the opportunity to attend Mila Hermanovski’s runway show during LAFC’s Fashion Week Los Angeles’ showcase at Maker City LA. Mila may not have been crowned champion of Project Runway or Project Runway Allstars but she definitely is a winner in my book. Not only does Mila have a true passion for fashion, she works hard for her art, and is incredibly nice as well. I have nothing but respect for this gal.



For her FW15 collection, titled “Frequency,” Mila kept it comfortable and chic. The minimalist-cool presentation gave off a modernist meets ath-leisure vibe. The looks featured Mila’s signature style, which factors on heavy doses of proportion play, asymmetrical hemlines, cut-out details, and innovative silhouettes.

Stella Proseyn: Fashion Week Los Angeles FW15 Presentation


For Fashion Week LA’s FW15 presentation, Debbie Talanian showcased her Stella Proseyn collection of classic looks, which featured tailored clean cuts and flattering silhouettes in neutral colors and comfortable, textured fabrics. Attainable beauty and everyday luxury was the focus for this season and Debbie demonstrated that by creating relevant pieces that every woman can add as a staple to her wardrobe. The runway show featured a number of items that I’d love to add to my collection. One being the snakeskin crew-neck and pencil skirt combo, which was a crowd favorite.
