Upon arriving at the historic Vibiana church in downtown Los Angeles crowds were already gathering around the beautiful cathedral. This event was going to be like no other this week. The preshow was held at Vibiana’s outdoor court yard where there were appetizers, cocktails, gelatos and more for the invited guests.

The first designer to showcase his talents on the runway was Alexis Monsanto.

Monsanto is one of the first to include 3D technology for his runway events. Guest was given a pair of 3D glasses to view the performance. The beginning of the runway show opened up with Las Vegas style performance. As soon as the first model strutted Monsanto’s designs on the runway you were instantly captivated by the glamour and femininity of his designs. The fabrics were soft, flowing and delicate giving it such as graceful feminine look. The first thought that came to my mind was societal women at the Hamptons in the summer. Lime green oversized hats which resembled that of high society women. The accessories worn for this collection were crystal chandelier exaggerated jewelry giving it a regal appearance. The runway show ended with a performance, which seemed something out of the Las Vegas Cesar’s Palace show followed by a shower of confetti. Furne One collection for Spring/Summer 2013 Furne One Spring Summer Collection 2013 Furne One spring summer 2013 Collection Furne One Collection for Spring Summer 2013 The last performer and much highly anticipated designer of the night was Furne One. Furne One, the Dubai based designer, is known for its elaborate attention grabbing costume style fashions. Some of Furne Ones famous clientele include Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry. He draws his inspirations from the fashions of the West and the Eastern cultures of the globe. The crowd in the room was to full capacity for this last show that almost filled the Vibiana. The excitement in the air resembled that of a concert as the crowd cheered loudly as the show began. I really have no words to describe how beautiful his fashions are. This designer is known for his over the top glamour designs that puts Lady Gaga to shame. The main colors used for his collection are nudes, gold’s and silvers with elaborate headpieces that resemble that of face masks. The gilded regal jewelry and headpieces stole the show and were out of this world. The fabrics for these designs were sheer with detailed beading and crystals. The stunning costume like gowns left the crowd speechless and in awe. Some of the gowns had a thorn like appearance which included a head mask, very attention grabbing. I can only describe his fashions as something out of a fantasy movie. The ‘performance’ ended with the models reuniting on the runway for pictures from the crowd. The pictures speak for themselves and now I can see why the event was over crowded as this designer took the crown. What a way to end fashion style week.
