Designer Adolfo Sanchez held a fashion installation at the Hold-Up Gallery in Little Tokyo to show off some of his S/S11 collection. (You may remember him from the “Hope in the City 3” show, which you can refer to here.) He chose to have the show at that location because he loved the venue itself, the location, size and the type of art they showcased. The inspiration for the collection was based on the hexagon shape. He loved it so much that he incorporated it into the collection, which already offered clean, classic and modern looks. He used light weight canvas, bleach treated denim and sheer/lightweight silks. My absolute favorite pieces were the long one-shoulder canvas dress (which he created for a film he’s doing the wardrobe for- “The O.D.D. Room”, the short canvas and bleach-treated denim dresses and the black strapless dress with peplum skirt. At the end of the evening, he auctioned off a pink jersey cocktail dress (which was the last of three that were made) and the proceeds that went to benefit breast cancer.
