ANAND JON   LA Fashion Week October 2004

LA Fashion Showss Fashion  +  Fashion Industry News  + Design Studio

Opting for a colonial tea and cocktails in the garden at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Anand Jon made his West Coast debut aptly entitled Divine Concubines.  A decidedly upmarket crowd of South Asian financiers, well-bred clients and eye-candy like Jenna Jameson, Bai Ling and Marla Maples came out to support the designer. 

But that's where the glamour ended.  Once the audience took their seats in the elegant ballroom, an amateur, disorganized presentation sparked and fizzed before our eyes.   On offer was a random assortment of flamed hotpants, beaded jeans, hooker/trucker looks and breast-baring fringed chokers that only a Pretty Woman could love.

In an almost placating gesture, bare-chested male models took their turns on the poorly lit catwalk wearing nothing but leather pants or faded jeans.  Finally some beaded special occasion dresses drew applause from the crowd, then promptly back to tartish ensembles of the most revealing kind.  Proving, sadly, that not even costly extras like ballet dancers, sword fighters and a posh location can save a badly organized collection.
