  2. I definitely feel like a lot of this seasons looks aren't appropriate for fall or winter, especially these looks. They are mostly just displays of spring 2013 trends. Not sure if many buyers will spend money on something out of season...

    But your photos are mind-glowingly good!

    1. Thank you for the compliment on my photos, Dalton! When we look at these Southern lines we have to remember that most of their goals are to concentrate on the South. How often do we really need a down parka in LA? I think this season's designers, whether emerging or veterans, kept in mind that their demographic is local and, even though it may not be "in season," I'd still rock a spring dress and add layers to make it for winter. It's about knowing that your purchasers want something they can mix into their current wardrobe, and most of the designers executed that well this season. Did you or anyone on your team get a chance to go to any of the shows this season?

    2. mind-blowingly* (My Blackberry loves to autocorrect incorrectly :P) You are very welcome! You are such a great blogger.

      Yeah. You're right. If they are just focusing on local buyers that definitely works out. Then again, some spring-isque looks could have been styled better for winter. If they do intend for the person wearing them to add layers, it would have been cool to see the look on the runway with layers. But, other looks just don't belong. Flamingo print shorts. That's very inappropriate for A/W shows, even in the south.

      No, my team and I didn't get a chance to cover it this season. We've been so busy traveling and preparing for an event we're hosting in a few months. Which is a shame because I would have loved to see Amanda DeLeon and Matthew Arthur's collections in person. How amazing they were! So much talent and creativity!
