Last night, I worked at MOCA in Los Angeles, CA for the wrap up of Downtown LA Fashion Week’s Spring Collection 2010.
The show opened with The Battalion, an eco-friendly label. “The Battalion specializes in knits and woven fabrics that are eco-friendly, primarily bamboo, organic cotton blends, recycled polyester and some cruelty free “peace” silk. Their Spring 2010 collection, L’Atelier De Danse was gracefully and elegant similar to a ballet featuring dreamy textures like lace, organza, and feather-like angled razor fringe.”
Following The Battalion was the talented Filipino designer Oliver Tolentino, who is known for making clothes for Imelda Marcos, showcased his evening wear and gowns.
