Linden LA

 

Hailing from Los Angeles, Linden headed by designer Jennifer Lynn has always exuded a calm and cool sensibility in short, a very west coast vibe. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, a novel by Haruki Marukami, inspires her Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection, which is perfect since Linden usually turns to art, music, literature and film as inspiration points for her creative juices. Linden often uses recyclable materials and keeps the manufacturing close to home in Los Angeles.

Ash Haute Couture

 

 

Direct from Mumbai India, Ashna Kalra brings forth an elegant fashion vision to the runways of Los Angeles. With couture that carries the fashionable weight of India’s textile heritage mixed with the modernity of that country’s bustling port urban centre, Ash Haute Couture’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection has a youthful energy with a fantastic collection of primary and pastel colours.  The ultra feminine silhouette is buoyed by use of intricate embroidery; a fabulous colour palette and a variety of textures giving each look its own vibrant identity.

Ina Soltani

 

Also based in Los Angeles, Ina Soltani is on the speed dial of such fashion plates as Eva Longoria, Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez. Red carpet presence is second nature to this designer who brings a glamourous and dramatic appeal with her latest collection. Her ode to her upbringing and her love for contemporary art is translated wonderfully from one look to the next. This collection is all in the details from the studded hardware accents to the leather applique approach.  Gorgeous.
