Considering the inauguration was this morning, the timing of this is quite interesting. Earlier this week, Balenciaga showed their Men’s Autumn/Winter 2017 collection at Paris Fashion Week. If you pay attention to the embroidery on some of the pieces, you may notice a reference to a certain United States political figure: Bernie Sanders.
Two years ago, I moved to Los Angeles to follow a passion (how cliche does that sound by the way?). I started graduate school to earn my master’s degree so that I could work in the fashion industry. I was nervous because although I’ve visited LA numerous times, it was a brand new city and I had no idea what I was getting into. On top of that, I wasn’t the best student when I was working on my undergraduate degree and I was scared that I was going to fail out of school. However over the past two years, I’m on the path of graduating with honors, I am interning at one of my favorite brands, and I’m 5 months from graduation.
After many tries to visit, Neil and I finally got to go to the Broad Museum in downtown L.A. the other day. Since it first opened last summer, I constantly kept requesting for tickets whether I was able to go or not because as everyone who has tried to go, the wait for tickets is unbelievably difficult. In any case, I was really excited and I was not disappointed. I didn’t know what to expect other than the giant balloon animal and the Infinity Room (which we got yelled at because Neil stepped into the water by accident and they had to clean and reset the entire room and I didn’t even get a good picture in there either). I was surprised to see so much famous artwork from Barbara Kruger to Andy Warhol. Anyway, let’s just enjoy some of my favorite pieces.
Back in February, I attended the Louis Vuitton Series 2 Exhibition in Hollywood.
In November 2013, the French fashion house, Louis Vuitton, announced that Nicolas Ghesquière will replace Marc Jacobs as the creative director for the company. Ghesquière would show his first collection for Louis Vuitton in March of 2014 at Paris Fashion Week. Now a full year later, Louis Vuitton will highlight Nicolas Ghesquière’s first few collections from Fall ’14, Spring ’15, Resort ’15, and Pre-Fall ‘15 in an exhibition that will be touring the world.
