Designers Kami Shade and Rachael Broussard showcased their lines during an exclusive runway event at the Rebecca Molayem Gallery on Robertson Blvd. during LA Fashion Week. My friend, Rochelle Carino of Rumple Munkeh (who’s floral mini dress I wore to the event) and I sat in the front row and watched as Kami Shade’s line was the first to go down the runway. Kami’s collection of sexy swimsuits, couture dresses, casual dresses, and sparkly minis is called “I Am Every Woman” because the four-way stretch in the garments forms to every women’s shape. According to Kami, “There’s no mannequin that helps design for all body types…” I absolutely LOVE Kami’s swimsuits. The cut especially… they are made that you can wear them SIX different ways! And of course the prints… My favs are the polk-dot and striped. I am also proud to say that I now own a Kami Shade striped swimsuit! I recommend that YOU pick up your Kami Shade suit at www.kamishade.com before the next beach season starts!
There was a brief intermission and then Rachael Broussard’s line, “Supastar” rocked the runway. The first model was none other than Rachael herself, in a mini gold ruched dress with zipper detailing in the front. Her collection Supastar was also combined with her couture collection R. Michel’le Couture because she had a mix of casual and couture wear in the presentation. Rachael chose the name ‘Supastar’ because it was her nickname and she wants to promote in both Supastar and R. Michel’ le is “for girls to embrace the star within themselves and bring out the ‘Supastar’ from deep within! And what I try to create is very different clothing for a new and fun look, that brings you to that ‘Star’ level!” She had some cute pieces, like the long striped dress with a vest , a long tank top dress, etc… You can shop the “Supastar” line and learn more about the multi-talented model and designer Rachael Broussard at www.supastarworld.com.
