What better place to revive a decades-old tradition than at historic Vibiana? On December 8, we were proud to host Chef Neal Fraser and friends’ Beefsteak 2011. It was a night of food, drink, and old-timey fun to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. Pulitzer Prize-winner Jonathan Gold was there to join in the festivities and wrote about it in the most recent issue of LA Weekly.

LA Fashion Week at Vibiana

LA Times

This past week we had the pleasure of hosting Style LA Fashion Week where several talented designers presented their Spring/Summer 2012 collections on the runway.

The week began with the vintage inspired designs of Stop Staring! as well as the Alternative Apparel who drew inspiration from the desert sunset colors of Palm Springs.

Closing out the week, Gen Art, an organization who fosters new talent in fashion and film, hosted “Fresh Faces in Fashion”.  The event featured a mix of both apparel and accessory designers, including: Stand and Deliver, Dear Creatures, and We are Handsome. Actress and fashion guru Zoe Saldana served as the evening’s emcee.  Saldana, who is a self-proclaimed supporter of up and coming designers, is “always on the lookout for new talent” for her fashion website My Fashion Database. Prior the runway show, designers Tomtom, Plomo, Sticks and Stones and Iman Toloui displayed their accessory lines in the garden courtyard.  Items ranged from handbags and totes to jewelry made from recycled material and objects found in nature.
