Los Angeles makes a statement for Fashion Week

N4XT Experience recently took charge of this year’s Los Angeles Fashion Week, and they made a statement. Known for its creative risk-taking in fashion, L.A is positioning itself as a contender among fashion hubs like Paris, New York, London, and Milan. From October 6th to October 9th, the event showcased the best of L.A fashion, with support from sponsors including Bolt, Ray-Ban Stories, Red Bear Winery, Mercedes-Benz of Los Angeles, and The EDITION West Hollywood.

The first on the list was anOnlyChild by Maxwell Osborne on Thursday the 6th. Several celebrities and influencers arrived to the opening such as famous rapper, Tyga, and CREED actor, Michael B. Jordan. Many were there to show their support but also flaunt their own signature looks, as LAFW was not only a place to be, but also a chance to present your best style for that week. Several shows were held at the Lighthouse Artstage, including this show.

On both male and female-leaning garments, anOnlyChild’s collection played carefully with silhouettes and tailoring. Each piece was colorful to the next, every walk was fun to look at.

On Friday the 7th a series of events took place and a few highlights from the show were Xiao Fen Couture’s Wildest Dream. It showcased a lot of floral designs, inspired by the designer’s love of flowers and plants from her homeland. She explains, “Everywhere I look is inspiration to me. I am not a person who necessarily seeks things out for inspiration, I let inspiration come to me…Similar to what I brought to this year’s designs. I happen to enjoy the beauty of flowers and that spoke out to me.”

After their show was Chris Nick, who is by the way color blinds he really moves towards his brand’s signature elevated minimalist look and that is why his choice of colors tend to be towards the blacker spectrum. “I know people find this interesting fact of me is that I am color blind and I don’t see full range of colors very well, but it doesn’t stop me from working within fashion. It’s all about creating and that’s what matters.”
