LA Fashion Week continues...

No fashion week is complete without its drama and such was the case of Veronika Jeanvie, the first Ukranian designer to show a collection in the US. Where was Paco Rabanne her mentor when she needed him at her U.S. debut? Mr Rabanne whom she refers to as her spiritual father cited a family emergency as the excuse.

That unfortunately left the event, billed as "Veronika Jeanvie consulted by Mr. Paco Rabanne," without its iconic Spanish-French anchor, and cast the spotlight squarely on 28-year-old Jeanvie and her bright, bling-heavy designs. Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley, designer Eduardo Lucero and musician Kelis all sat in the audience.

With rock tunes blaring overhead, models strutted down the runway in towering heels and clad in an array of shiny fabrics, from silver and gold hot pants to a skintight gold bodysuit paired with a sort of chain-mail poncho.

Her inspiration was the ocean, sky and green plants she saw while on vacation in England and France, she said. You be the judge!

Joseph Domingo

Aside from Joseph Domingo taping his models eyes shut! Yes, you heard me - SHUT! with nude mask, his collection was very lovely. Strong and gorgeous!

Julia Clancey

I seem to favor a lot of the European designers. A lot of our North American designers don't beleive in reinventing the wheel and as a result you get a "been there done that" feel for most of their collections. Julia Clancey is an English designer that works primarily out of London. Her clothing sells very well in Europe, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Australia,Lebanon and Russia.

Just some of my favorites!
