Noted international fashion designer Quynh Paris unveiled her Fall/Winter 2016-2017 show, aptly titled “The Light of the Stars” as a part of Style Fashion Week at the Pacific Design Center (PDC). Quynh is a noted international designer in the true sense of the word and I love how she has a great fusion of East meets West. I also loved how the setting of PDC, or “Blue Whale” as it’s referred to, fit the occasion perfectly. The runway for the PDC shows was surrounded by water, which fit in with Quynh’s theme of the galaxy and there was no tent […]

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing sportswear designer extraordinaire Heather Verran. In the small world that is Los Angeles, I later discovered that Heather’s sister is amazing event photographer Sheri Determan that I often run into at events. So creativity truly runs in the family for these amazing ladies. If you are of my gender and have worn the likes of The Gap, Zella, Shape Active and/or other notable activewear designs at the gym or around town (this is So Cal after all and casual, comfortable style reigns supreme), then you have surely worn Heather’s amazing designs. Verran is […]

On Saturday, October 17th, there was the perfect fusion of East meets West, when acclaimed international fashion designer Quynh Paris debuted her gorgeous new spring-summer 2016 “Feeling” collection at the prominent Style Fashion Week at the Reef in downtown LA. Quynh also debuted her sleek and stylish Ready-to-wear collection.
