Some exciting news of late: we took on a new team member and I am super excited. With an eye for style, knowledge of all things social media, and overall awesomeness he will be a great addition to team CKP.
Now on to the good stuff: Fashion OC.
Last night we styled a fashion show at The Liberty Hotel for their Fashionably LATE series. The collection of clothing was from Yellow Clover by sarah elizabeth's A/W 2011 line which previously rocked the runway at StyleWeek. Though technically fall the audience at Fashionably LATE seems to embrace the now and so we paired the items with bright shoes in almost every color of the rainbow as well as crystal necklaces in yellow, pink, apple green, mauve, and ocean blue to give it a spring feel. Hair was styled in messy side braids for that laid back picnic look and some models even rocked hippie style beaded headpieces, OC. We also paired the collection with earrings from Modern Shades of Grey, earrings made from unique vintage beads--perfect for the designer's one-of-a-kind, vintage vibe.
The event was packed and the venue told us it was the busiest event they had seen in some time. Of course the models had to balance some changes to their regular routine (the escalators were out of order forcing them to change their catwalk route) but still rocked it like no other. Dynasty Models Nilsa, Sarah Miller, Jennifer Kutt, Anasophia Gartner, and Colby Radomski were amazing, vintage inspired dolls.
