MALAN BRETON SPRING COLLECTION “REFLECTIONS ON SUN MOON LAKE” FASHION SHOW
I hadn’t been to a Style Week fashion show in quite awhile, so I was happy to attend the Malan Breton Spring Collection one that kicked-off their week.
The whole event was actually quite fun. After fighting through shows at the poorly-run Taglyan Complex in Hollywood the week before, it was an immense pleasure to attend one at DTLA’s excellent venue, The Reef. It’s so easy, well-run, and best of all, spacious!!!
The show was held on the second floor of the building, and that whole level was rife with fun activities; there were girls carrying old-time “cigarette trays” with bags of popcorn, a table with freshly brewed coffees and teas, and interesting new bottled waters everywhere you turned.
Every nook and cranny had vendors selling something fun–make-up, hair products, jewelry, even gowns! And a local bakery had set-up shop right in the middle of that second floor “lobby” area. There was also a darker room with a clubby vibe that featured two bars and comfy couches, too. The whole shebang was everything Fashion Week should be!
My pal, Alice, and I had front row seats, (as I always have for Fashion Week in the past.) That would have been great had not some piggy people purloined them when we left for a few minutes while the room was still filling-up. So, sadly, I didn’t get to see much of the fashions themselves. But what I did see I enjoyed.
The show was good, though. A music duo entertained the crowd at the start, and then, after about four models went down the runway, they showed a video that Malan made, lauding his influencers.
Then back to the fashions; the peeps around me were chuckling a bit because these were such colorful, warm fashions, but not one model would crack even the slightest smile. They kept their straight-faced characters going throughout. I modeled for years, so I know just how hard that is to do. So, big props to them!
As interesting as all of Malan Breton’s designs were, my mouth was watering for the couple of fashions that were created out of material with pink and blue designs. I loved those!
The show itself was short and sweet, and accomplished everything it needed to. And so did we at Style Week.
