Day Two of LA Fashion Week

We sat elbow to elbow in the hottest tent in Smashbox Studios listening to jazz waiting for the "Un Petit quelque chose" Collection to go off. Finally, forty five minutes later the British Opera Star, Summer, started the show.

" This selection of desirables takes one from the marina of St.Tropez, the red carpet of Cannes and sunset cocktails of Muscat…”

Julia Clancey is a London based designer who established her name as a stylist prior to starting her own label. Her signature style is an iconic blend of classic glamour and glitz.
Her style was evident throughout a collection of designs that were about empowered femininity and classic elegance.
The collection touched on styles from the forties to the seventies We loved the modernized flapper silhouette – a drop waist cocktail dresses with satin sash belts and short hemlines. The kaftans were delicately embroidered and trimmed in gold and silver and can effortlessly flatter anyone. The brighter palette consists of tropical turquoise, papaya, jade and strawberry.
