The rooftop at Kress nightclub in Hollywood was the perfect set-up for March Fashion Industry Night to get us excited for the spring collections. As the DJ was spinning all the right songs, the crowd enjoyed complimentary Marani Vodka cocktails in anticipation of the show.
The show began with the introduction of Capelta’s 2009 boot collection. The designer, Monique Capelta, has a unique twist on incorporating different eras in her collection. Her collection looked to be inspired by vintage shops. She has taken the cowboy boot to a whole new level by adding fur and fringe. Her Billie Jean boots are a fabulous throwback to the All-American cowgirl. Monique manages to push the boundaries with her style and it works.
The main headliner was Jeffery Sebelia’s line Cosa Nostra. Most people know Jeffrey as the winner of Project Runway and seeing a sneak peek of his line proves he was chosen for a reason. Jeffrey has always played with hemlines and length variations. His Spring collection shows a softer side by using clean lines with the same asymmetrical feel. He has incorporated prints in his collection which will score him a home run. The prints he picked are fabulous. The Ford models all looked stunning showing off the collection. The only disappointment was we only had the chance to preview five looks and it left me wanting more.
Design fans and celebrities alike came out to see the show, including the owner of Sunset Tan Jeff Bozz and comedian Pauly Shore. This event was put on by Matt and Sean of Royalty Rope Events. Their attention to details and organization made the night flawless. www.royaltyrope.com
