Of course the weather couldn’t be lovelier (though it was somewhat warm when not in the shade) when designer Catherine Malandrino hosted an outdoor fashion show, along with her friend and longtime fan, Keisha Whitaker. This event was part of the two-day event: Legends of La Cienega 2010- which honored design (mainly set decor and interior design) on the silver screen, television and those talented folks that made Hollywood the entertainment capital.
Catherine’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection “Nomads” was inspired by tribal cultures of the Sudanese clans, Saharan nomads, Peruvian tribes and Polynesian natives. A majority of the dresses and pants had a draped or wrapped-around-the-body silhouette. In keeping up with the theme; vibrant, earthy color palettes were used. I was in awe at the attention to detail that was put into the garments. The beading….knitting….draping…simply astonishing!
