Concept Los Angeles Fashion Week is a bi-annual event which takes place in the world renowned “ACE Gallery” located in the Museum Row of Los Angeles. Concept Fashion Week brings out the edgier side of Los Angeles Fashion Scene.
It is always a challenge to start something with a bang and Nuvula did it in a spectacular manner. Nuvula is a fashion company with a commitment to art, authenticity and innovation. Nuvula strives to capture the textures of everyday inspiration. The collection was kicked off to a live rendition of “El Tango De Roxanne” (from Moulin Rouge-sountrack) along with a music ensemble of a cello and violin.
The opening dress was a number in red set to the song accompanied by a light blue jacket. The first series in the collection is set in Red. The second dress was just adorable with a black on red pattern and a high light blue collar. I love the light blue edges and the accompanying shoes. The second series in the collection was all variations of kimono based dresses and they are just lovely. The half kimono combination with stockings set in blue was downright sexy. The outstanding dress of this series was the black kimono skirt with black and grey edges.The third series in this collection was on the style of riding pants. I think what makes this collection so unique is the variety of influences which are combined here ranging from japan to the Victorian age.
One stunning number was the white shirt embroidered with black stripes accompanied by a black jacket. The black stripes continue on the pants and complete the outfit. The next series comprised of knee length dresses. The pieces in this series had a elegant tall look. One of my favorites was the blue dress with black lace. The black on blue combination and the low back made this dress hot. The final series was based on vest and corsets. I loved the black and white striped hot pants with a white corset. Near the end was an all-black outfit with low cut shirt and black pants.
This was a very well put together collection and the hairdos were to kill for. I think the hair designs meshed well with all the different styles being presented. Albeit a bit too long with more than 60 outfits being presented this was a show well worth braving the wild LA traffic.
