Sue Wong Fabulous! Los Angeles Fashion Week--and there are tons of fashion shows, presentations and events going on around town. One I was invited to last Thursday was the Sue Wong "Lady or Vamp" Spring 2012 Fashion Preview at Voyeur Nightclub in West Hollywood. Sue Wong, as you may know, is an LA-based designer--specializing in beautiful cocktail and evening dresses-- that sell ALL OVER the World and at all the top stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Her motto is "Opulent Restraint". A month ago, I ran into her at the AMAZING "Fabulous!" Exhibit Opening at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising/FIDM Museum & Galleries and she said "You must come to my show!". Well, done and done! For Spring 2012, Sue Wong's fashion presentation was titled "Lady or Vamp": As I entered the party, I noticed lots of guests dressed to the Nines--in either Black or White, tuxedos, top hats. They also all had wonderful "Sue Wong Goodie Bags" (Where were they? I never got one). Irregardless, I chose to wear a very subdued grey TopMan jacket, Hermes pocket scarf, grey Levi's skinny jeans and a white dress shirt. Not very "Lady" or "Vamp" I know... hors d'oeuvres as models stationed themselves either on stage or in various "podium" sections throughout the venue. The Dresses were beaded, cocktail-length or long, and very Sue Wong! I was so excited when I ran into one of my favorite models, Amanda Fields (above). As you know, she is a "muse" of sorts for my NIKOLAKI line and is featured on our website. Besides that, I have that "special Project Runway kinship" with her since she was a model back on Project Runway Season 3. Model Fierce: Speaking of "Project Runway"--also modeling was Brandise Danesewich (above), who was on Project Runway Season 7 and Models of the Runway Season 2. Every time I see her--either at an event--or modeling in a fashion show--she ALWAYS takes the time to say "hello" and be the definition of CLASS. LOVE her!
Perfect Couple: Stylist Kit Scarbo and Adam Arcos, Sue Wong "Lady or Vamp" Spring 2012 Fashion Presentation, Voyeur NightclubOh, and guess who else I ran into: The ALWAYS-Chic Kit Scarbo--or as "Project Runway" fans remember her--Kit Pistol from Project Runway Season 4. Kit is a FAB and very talented stylist for E!. She was in a cream beaded dress, black leather gloves and matching waist tie. But her best accessory was her beau, the very handsome Adam Arcos.

It looks like LA Fashion Week Spring 2012 is off to a very fabulous start!!
