LA Fashion Week: Lauren-Elaine rocks her Fall 2010 Black Label Collection

March 22, 2010 — The last show I attended for LA’s Fashion Week was Lauren-Elaine’s “LA Rocks Fashion Week” over at the Key Club in West Hollywood. This time, I was on the guest list as opposed to press which meant I could enjoy the show with a good friend and fashion photographer without being in the trenches with the press. The down side is that I don’t have any images that I can post, but I’m working to get permission and will update this post as soon as I get a few. In the meantime, you can go to Lauren-Elaine Designs on FACEBOOK or to her website to get a glimpse of the looks presented that evening and other festivities.
