Launching today, “Le Shoppe” by Los Angeles Fashion Council, features the work of some of the designers they took to London; Alana Hale, Jen Awad, Curly V, The Bohemian Society by Victor Wilde, Sires Crown Eyewear, Kittinhawk and Bijou Van Ness. The collection also features Los Angeles Fashion Council original t-shirts. For many of the designers, this is first time their collections have been available at retail, and many pieces are exclusively available through their store.
And Guess What?
I modeled hats for Bijou Van Ness!
Asked to bring in some of my dresses and shoes (I was told to bring fancy church attire! LOL ), I was styled by Kristen from Glitter N Glue and had my hair pressed, makeup done and voila! I am on the site! Here are my looks and links below:
The Polka Dot Cocktail Hat by Bijou Van Ness. Fascinator made from sheer silk organza fabric with black cotton polka dots. Grosgrain ribbon around edge and purple silk taffeta lining. Secures to head with elastic headband. In this shoot, I am rocking a red drape dress from eShakti!
