|Shay Todd - LA Fashion Week October 2004|
New to the collection this season was a group of aprs-sol separates, sequined boybeaters, boyshorts, elegant embellished caftans and Lurex drawstring cover-ups. Signature classics like French terry hoodies and sweats are enduring staples for this line, but the impulsive babydoll ruffle looks were overtly boudoir.
The standing-room-only crowd, no doubt tempted by the
publicist's promise of very little clothing, beautiful women and one
special evening,drew buyers, press and emerging rap stars alike.
Front-row divas included Carmen Electra and FOX Weathergirl Jillian Barberi.
As soon as the lights went down, they were rocking to the seductive,
custom-recorded beats (including the debut of Kansas Cali's Hello World)
and enthusiastically applauding the scanty lineup. This crowd came to
groove, see skin and dream of summer and they got what they came for!
