King Design at LA Fashion Week

by Tara McDonough

Now a permanent feature on the international fashion week circuit, LA Fashion Week held their three-night event at the Petersen Automotive Museum this past weekend, March 22 through March 24. On the third and final night of LA Fashion Week, the events began with the unveiling of King Designs Fall/Winter Collection by female designer Jessica King.

Billie Eilish’s “Bury A Friend” vibrated through the speakers as the first two models made their way down the runway in both black and green versions of King’s Python One Shoulder Swimsuit.

The collection is full of waterproof holographic and reflective prints, python reminiscent patterns, hand dyed bralettes, leather bottoms, velvet and chains. The line combines streetwear, swimwear and sportswear in a unique and enthralling way. The body types of each model varied, reflecting the clothing line’s range of sizes from X-small to X-large and the designers inclusive views on fashion. No two models looked alike, bringing a fresh air of diversity to the runway.

Jessica King herself graciously received her applause at the end of the show in an all black ensemble featuring a one shoulder top from the Fall/Winter collection and chainwork hanging from her belted ankle-length skirt.

In Loving Memory of Michael Mann

By Madison Smushkevich

Recently, notable fashion stylist, Michael Mann, sadly passed away. His cause of death is still unknown.

Michael has worked with 360 Magazine, Fashion Bomb Daily as well as Vogue Brasil.

Not long ago, model Draya Michele teamed up with Mann for her 360 Magazine cover. “You pushed for me. When they said I couldn’t be a fashion girl, you said I could,” asserts Draya (on a recent Instagram post). It’s evident that Mann made a sincere effort to see both his clients and loved ones reach their personal best.

Recently, a GoFundMe page was created to assist Mann’s family with costly funeral arrangements.
