TwoPointOh!LA’s Pre Fashion Week Party

Two Point Oh! LA hosted its 3rd pre-fashion week party at The Falls lounge in Downtown, Los Angeles. Kelsi Smith always does a good job of organizing events for the TwoPointOh!LA members, and I have to say she picked a great place to host this event. I loved the laid-back vibe, the artfully chic décor, and the creative drink menu. The signature drink for the evening was The Stiletto. I was too busy soaking up the ambiance to notice what the bartender was mixing together, but I do know it contained the juice of a freshly squeezed blood orange and champagne. We also tried one of the house’s signature drinks - The Mustang Ranch, which was made with red pepper vodka, fresh organic strawberries, basil, lime juice, and simple syrup. The Falls is located near gallery row so be sure to hit it up if you’re attending Art Walk.

This season’s Pre-Fashion Week Party honored L.A. Fashion Designers Mila Hermanovski & Sarah Brannon of Chelsea Rebelle. Chelsea Rebelle’s designer Sarah Brannon derives her inspiration from music, youth culture, and art. Her modern, flirty, fun frocks are often whimsical with a dark twist. She’s known for her use of bold color patterns, interesting fabrics (rubber), and oversized girly bows. In fact, one of the girls at the event was wearing a signature CR bow dress.

Many of you may remember Mila Hermanovski from Season 7 of Project Runway. I was rooting for her and even though she didn’t win I’m happy to see that her career in fashion is flourishing. Mila is a talented designer and she unveiled a few beautiful pieces from her FW 2011 cashmere capsule collection, some of which featured simplistic, asymmetrical monochromatic lines. I look forward to seeing more of her work.

YOU by Crocs had some shoes on display and I have to admit I was surprised to discover that Crocs also has a line of heels, wedges, boots, and flats that are stylish and comfortable. Who Know? I have to give designer Samantha Bryan credit for her creative diversity. We got to preview the new spring collection, and I have to say that I was impressed. If you’re on your feet all day and want a shoe that is comfortable and cute be sure to check out YOU by Crocs. I was also happy to find out about the Crocs Cares program, which has donated over 2.5 million pairs of shoes to those in need in impoverished areas and those that are affected by natural disasters. The goal of the program is to reduce the rate of skin infections, parasites, and cuts acquired through the lack of foot protection.

The rest of the evening was spent snacking on tasty macaroons courtesy of Chocolate Box Cafe and admiring all the great outfits. This was the first time I’ve seen Heather Petrey in something that wasn’t her own creation. However, she was wearing a very cute vintage dress comprised of a delicate lace top and crisp white skirt that was very Audrey Hepburn.
