Fashion Week in LA has been a wild ride recently. Fashion goers have been happily venue hopping just to get a glimpse of the latest and greatest on the West Coast. Whether the designer is a graduating student from a respected fashion school or a veteran couturier worth millions, as long as we get a good show, all is fair on our fashion runways. The latest issue of Agenda Magazine focuses on one sector of fashion here in LA, “Style Fashion Week LA.” Fashion editor and editor in chief Kaylene Peoples breaks it down uninhibitedly, telling it like it was at Vibiana in Downtown LA. To read reviews and see extensive photographic documentation, check out Agenda Magazine’s “New Year’s 2012, New Beginnings” to read all about it.
Furne One Spring 2012 received mixed reviews. Kaylene talks about the good and the not-so-great qualities of this collection as perceived through the still images of live runway, backstage, and a fashion editorial. Read the article “Furne One of Amato Haute Couture Spring 2012 Collection – Haute Couture or Ouch Couture, Costumer or Couturier.” This article also points out the importance of production values when showing a theatric collection. Other reviews feature the spring 2012 lines of Gen Art Fresh Faces, Octavio Carlin, Gypsy 05, and Coco Johnsen.
Agenda Magazine has been an honest voice when it comes to reviewing fashion. Having reported on fashion weeks in LA and New York for years, this LA based online magazine is the only one that focuses on designers in such detail that it has become the main source for viewing the collections and exclusive backstage coverage; as well as just putting out good editorial content (of which there is an abundance in every one of Agenda’s issues). This issue not only features LA fashion, but Agenda also covers the spring 2012 collections of Diane Von Furstenberg, Chado Ralph Rucci, L.A.M.B., and Made in Africa: Arise from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week New York.
