Fresh Designs at the Designer Launchpad Runway Show

{PC - Kerryn Leigh}

I was invited to see the Designer Launchpad fashion show at the California Market Center (CMC) during the last market week. These shows are a great way to see new up-and-coming designers and their collections. This show was busier than the previous one I attended during the last LA Fashion Week. Unfortunately, I missed half of the show due to traffic for the Lakers but was able to view the collections up close after the show.

My favorite line from the show was Kerryn Leigh. It consisted of great basic pieces that can be mixed and matched for numerous looks. The philosophy behind the line was to create wardrobe classics that live beyond trends and seasons. The pieces were so soft to touch and felt like a soft hug against your skin. This line is one that I could see making its way into my closet.

While walking among the booths after the show, I ran into Alexana from Dollimou who showed her collection at the last Designer Launchpad. She's an absolute doll in person and since I was there, she showed me what was coming in her next few collections. I love her line as it's perfect "beach chic" and am very excited for her holiday collection.

I am looking forward to seeing the next batch of new-comers CMC showcases in its next Designer Launchpad.
