Live Review: Project Ethos at L.A. Fashion Week (Part 1)

Project Ethos' L.A. Fashion Week event proved to the be the wildest of all shows as the Avalon was turned into a huge party Friday night. Project Runway's alumnus Nick Verreos hosted the show again this time and christened the catwalk by sashaying down the runway. We also saw some familiar designers hit the runway including Cardiwrap by Kymaro and B.Vika, who showcased designs at Project Ethos' Love Sick event back in July. Goga by Gordana returned this past Friday having been a part of Project Ethos' last fashion week event in March. Newcomers to the event included Doctrine, Summer Titone, Annie and Jade by Annie Le, Lumiere, Marialia, Lamixx, BritBoy Fashion, Jaq Wear and Hard Couture.

Unlike other fashion week events, Project Ethos always showcases an up and coming band. This time around, Voxhaul Broadcast hit the stage performing indie tunes.

The first line to hit the runway was CardiWrap by Kymaro. Their wraps can be transformed into over 50 different styles. This time, models transformed their outfits at the end of the runway, showing the crowd how easy it was to create versatile looks with the CardiWrap.

Here are some of our favorite looks:

Summer is inching closer, and while we're all psyched for the perpetually warm weather ahead after a tough winter, pretty soon it's inevitable that the heat, humidity and summer sun will leave us feeling, well, less than fresh.

Chrissy Volk, wardrobe consultant for Adahlia Volk has put together a cheat-sheet for navigating through the best, most breatheable fabrics for the season. Who ever looks at clothing "ingredient" listings on the tag - well, this season think of it as your guide to "cool."


COTTON + STRETCH = CUTE BUTT: Cotton jeans are the lightest for summer because they are airy and breathable, however, jeans with a small content of stretch are the most flattering. They will move with your body and it’s movements.BEST DENIM BLENDS: Chrissy suggests denim with a high cotton content, and small synthetic content. A jean with either a 98% cotton/2% lycra or 96 % cotton/4% Lycra fabric, is a good combination. J…
