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:

Next on the runway was B.Vika who brought sequins, bikinis, dresses and opened their show with drums, similar to Kooey at L.A. Fashion Weekend at Sunset Gower Studios.
