Last night was a wonderful night filled with fashion, creativity, determination, and a spectacular show! I had the honor of helping out with the Launch x Fashion show and saw what it was like to produce a fashion show from beginning to end. Boy do I commend Lisa Kennedy and Sandra Yan-Crowell for producing such an impressive show last night at the Tsakopolous Library Galleria. (super cool bamboo jersey dress by the designer Frock LA – loved this collection!)
It was a delight to meet and speak with a previous Project Runway star and hear about how he makes his own knits, textiles, and designs. The star I am referring to is Joseph Aaron Segal of last seasons show. (Pretty Snake is his label) I mean, how fun are these candy leggings and headbands?! Makes you smile and feel like a kid again.
You’re probably wondering what thrifted frock I wore to the event right? Well, since we had to wear all black I opted for my finest vintage dress purchased a couple of months ago at the Sac Antique Faire. It’s a 1950’s silk velvet dress that felt like it was made for me! It came with a little jacket, too, but I only wore the dress to the event. ($40 for the set – not too bad for a piece of history and art)
At the event I decided to do my hair in a ponytail with a puff on the top to make it seem a little more fresh and paired that with some dangly earrings my Momma made me. I was thrilled to see one of my favorite local fashion bloggers, Ms Bridgett, there doing press. She’s such a talented writer and artist. The girl puts together some of the best ensembles around. There’s always a story and I absolutely love that!
In the end, it was a FUN night filled with fashion, education, and true talent. I really felt inspired to be around such talented and creative fashion minds. I attended the Launch x Music festival today and can’t wait to share with you all the best fashion I saw and my very own thrifted look for the day!
