Fashion is more than clothes; it’s art. Proving this point during LA Fashion Week was Project Ethos. In collaboration with Downtown LA Art Walk, up-and-coming, LA-based designers showcased their work alongside artists, musicians and DJs at Exchange nightclub in downtown LA.The event was hosted by a variety of fashion players including celebrity stylists from Chic Little Devil Style House, buyers from LF Stores and the Doneger Group, and curators from Art Pic Gallery and Altered Space Gallery. Festivities started with a meet-and-greet in the downstairs art gallery as hundreds of music, art and fashion enthusiasts mingled and rocked out to DJ Rob Rockwell.The fashion show opened with the designs of Jose Galeana, who presented a retro-inspired collection of bright and vivid colors in his line, Galeana Designs. Next up, Marialia Pacitto presented Marialia, a Barbie and Rock Star inspired collection including many fun, flirty designs. Jennifer Krischer and her line, Linden, had a classic and vintage feel with high-waist shorts, tight pants and 50s styled bra tops. Andre Myers’ line, Nine Menswear, featured a casual yet cool collection. To finish off this group of designers, B. by Aperie showed off its collection of eclectic footwear.

Some of the key pieces were more edgy but most male models looked light and comfortable strutting across the catwalk.” Splash Magazines
