Metropolitan Fashion Week came to a close last week with the Avant-garde fashion show put on by some talented designers and artists at the beautiful Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Included in the show were designers Jason Ryan, showing his collection titled “Resentment. Run. Evil.”
Following those warrior-esque looks was Los Angeles Masks designer Swig Miller, featuring intricate body art by artist Inoe Vargas, with the titled collection, “Rise Like a Phoenix.” And finally, my favorite collection of the afternoon, “Frida, Naturaleza Viva,” by costume designer Ricardo Soltero and artist Manuel Acosta.
Keurig, one of the show’s main sponsors, donated raw materials that were incorporated into the “Frida” looks. Leave it to recycled materials to elevate a show!
