The hip style house La Maison de Fashion on Melrose was the place to be for the debut show of Alana Hale’s Holiday 2010 collection. The event was hosted by the lovely ladies of La Maison de Fashion, Taylar Aquilar and Alana Hale. Alana, a FIDM graduate, started her line about a year and a half ago and this collection a mere four months ago. She presented eleven looks inspired by “Old Hollywood”. She wanted to mix lady-like glamor with dramatic showmanship. She used a variety of material such as: leathers, silks and metallic threads. The silhouettes were kept simple, per Alana’s request-as she wants simple as possible, due to her love of adding as much detailing as possible and her other love of detailed fabric. I adored the “Sophia Dress”- made of feather appliqued silk and silk crepe and the knockout piece of the night was the embossed burgundy leather “Croc Dress” (which is also Alana’s favorite as well.)
The Alana Hale line is located in the La Maison de Fashion showroom and can be pre-ordered. Contact La Maison de Fashion at 7471 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles,CA 90046. Phone:(323)658-8008.
