That’s right, darlings! We threw on our wigs and slid into our favorite pair of pantyhose to celebrate UV’s first show during LA Fashion Week! It was an evening filled with fabulous fashion, divine dames and general extravagance as we gave the world a sneak peek of what’s to come this Spring! Grab a cocktail and throw some appetizers in your purse as we take you front row to Fashion Week!
We kicked things off with our homage to our divine bathing beauties of yesteryear! Having just expanded our swim line, the fine folks at Fashion Week were treated to quite the splash! From our classic Dinah One Piece to the Monroe Two Piece in a brand new floral print, next season is going to be bright, gals! Our new favorite? Our all white Mansfield One Piece! Fully-ruched and beach ready.
Known for our playful sense of style when it comes to Spring, we kicked off our Pin Up portion of the show with a few flirty pieces we knew you dames would fawn over! A floral cotton two-piece, reminiscent of playsuits in the 1940′s and a medium-weight navy & white stripe frock kicked off the line, both complete with our signature short crinoline slip. We’re playing with hemlines next Spring, gals!
It’s straight to cocktail hour with these two effortless ensembles, darlings! A brushed cotton, white, tea-length dress is embellished with black ribbon detailing and a lady like neckline. While our favorite fabric, chiffon, makes an appearance in a fully dotted, strapless cocktail dress- complete with a matching navy jacket! (which we fully lined with matching dotted chiffon, of course.)
But perhaps our most anticipated look was our final Pin Up piece! A truly retro ensemble, complete in a shiny yellow and topped off with black polka dots Inspired by Suzy Parker circa 1955, a classic fit and flare dress is updated with a chic back cut-out and darling bow. And since it’s all in the details, we topped off the look with an authentic 1950s picture hat and matching gloves! Divine, darlings? Why of course.
Our show closed with a touch of art deco glamour- that only UV could provide. Some our best and boldest flapper dresses took to the runway and shimmied as though they were Daisy Buchanan herself. From our most famous pieces, to a handful of newly inspired looks, the 1920′s came roaring back in grand style, dames.
All of which wouldn’t have been possible without our marvelous models. Each one, a fabulous UV Darling for the evening.
And of course none of the looks would have come to life so fabulously without the vision of our fearless leader and owner, Katie Echeverry! Doesn’t she just look lovely with her darling daughters?
All in all, it was quite the spectacular, gals! From eyefuls of chiffon to the unveiling of our highly-anticipated swim line, the UV Team had a fabulous debut on the runway. Doesn’t it just make you OH so excited for Spring?! Look out for these looks and so much more from Unique Vintage!
