Happy Monday Fashion Femme Fatales and Gents!!! I hope your weekend was the best ever! Ralph and I saw the Wizards play my Hawks at the Verizon Center. We had a blast! The only way it could have been better for Ralph is if we were watching the Lakers. Born and raised in LA – he’s a DIE HARD fan. Speaking of Los Angeles love, I’m turning full attention to LA designer Ashton Hirota who made his debut on the fashion scene at the age of 19 selling at stores such as Patricia Fields NYC, and Volcan & Afrodite in Tokyo. It’s been ten years since and his look is the fashion-forward choice of celebs! With stylish clients like Will.i.am, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Pitbull, Future, Wiz Khalifa and Mario, he is definitely a force to be reckoned with! Check out video and pics of his spring/summer 2014 Black Cross collection where the streets of Hollywood were shut down with a runway in the middle! The S/S14 collection was inspired by Hasidic details and East L.A. cholo silhouettes. I’m in love with all of the bad boy perforated leather looks! Cool Fact – Purchases and rentals are available with full option to alter or customize any piece in house one on one with the designer himself.
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
