LA Fashion on Broadway

Last night was the premiere night of LA Fashion on Broadway at the LA Theater featuring Maxine Dillon, popomomo, David Alexander, Chelsea Rebelle, and Ximena Valero. Totally stoked to be working behind the scenes doing everything from setting up chairs and gift bags to directing guests to their seats at the shows.

Caught a glimpse of the popomomo show. Not your typical runway show. The models rotated between 5 to 6 stations around the stage, casually posing for a few minutes, fiddling around with ribbons at each spot. Think going to a museum and seeing an art installation with live people in it.

Chunky bead and rope necklaces.

Open backs.

Spat shoes.

On the way, spotted fashion designer Mallyce of the label Laeken wearing her own studded denim jacket.

If you follow me on TWITTER, you might have sensed the commotion going on just before the Chelsea Rebelle show. But not to worry, fashion assistants to the rescue. We rushed 100 chairs down two flights of stairs just in time to start fashionably late!

Sexy construction girl wearing HUGE multi buckle platform boots, making multiple appearances throughout the show.

Faux leather jumper dress

Fierce. Major.

This finale dress was worth the wait.

Dollface Jenny knows how to turn body con leopard print into a sweet look. Wearing a dress by our favorite store Topshop, sheer top DKNY, and shoes from Frye.

Don't you just love her pixie hair?

Totally had to find out who this more-fab-than-Lady-Gaga trendsetter was!

Sorry girls, Beth's key pieces are all vintage!! Vint jacket, vint Saks hat, Gucci purse, and Marc Jacobs rings. One glove, that's how you roll!

The Ximena Valero show opened with a short modern dance with the models showing off the versatility of the clothes by tying the tops in at least 5 different ways. The dance was followed by the energy pumping fashion show featuring short and long jumpsuits, dresses, and complicated braided twists.

Plunging necklines.

Look at the red rope on the model's right arm, one of my fav looks.


Elaborate criss cross theme in the front and back of the dresses.

A closeup of the hair, some intense braids. Backstage with gorgeous new model on the block Gretchen, 22.

Detailed shot of the braiding and twists on the dresses modeled by Jaq, 24.

With total darlings Genesis and Walter after the show.

Indulging in my front row status before the show. Don't laugh, I'm totally stoked!

Success! Here in my all black uniform Wearing a Go International dress by Richard Chai, Hue patterned stockings, feather hairpiece from Japan, and Enzo Angiolini shoes.

The big sleeves double as pockets for storing my soon-to-be-iPhone, pinkcamera, and other gadgets!

That's it for tonight, but more coverage of LA Fashion this weekend! Thanks again to all my readers, I heart you all!
