Everybody in the SoCal fashion world knows to keep one week a year of his or her calendar clear and that’s Style Fashion Week L.A. This year, Style Fashion Week L.A. falls on March 9th to March 13th. Throughout the week, various designers such as Ina Soltani, Andre Soriano, Michael Costello, Betsey Johnson, and several more will have us falling in love with their glorious designs on the runway.
Yesterday, we had the pleasure of seeing beautiful, intricate apparel designed by the lovely Ina Soltani. Ina Soltani’s style is passionate and luxurious. Using mostly black in this season’s collection, her apparel illuminated fierce, dramatic looks. She is an L.A. based designer who graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM).
Many celebrities have been spotted in her designs including Kerry Washington, Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart, Emily Blunt, Fergie, Jennifer Lopez, and Eva Longoria. Her stunning evening gowns are ideal for red carpet and Hollywood evening parties.
For her Fall/Winter 2013, her collection showed casual, yet edgy designs that were breathtakingly original. In her Fall 2014, she has focused on mystique and showing off fearless designs. A theme for this season’s showcase is modern meets high drama.
Dramatic is an understatement for Ina Soltani. In the best possible way, she used colors and fabrics to further emphasize these high fashion looks. Using a color palette of black, metallic, white, and a dark charcoal gray, Soltani created an intense look for her designs. Leather helped set this aggressive tone. All of these elements further illuminated Ina Soltani’s talent on the runway. Her fearless attitude paid off, because her designs shine beautifully throughout the show.
Ina Soltani has kicked off Style Fashion Week LA right, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
