House of Blues in Anaheim sets the stage for Tom Ford, Prada, Saint Laurent and other edgy fall fashion – Orange County Register
Fashion is more than just fine tailoring. It’s art. It’s expression. It’s action. Similar to music, style is about harnessing the spirit of a moment. It’s about capturing a feeling and projecting that energy into the universe. Songwriters pen the anthems of a generation. Whereas fashion designers construct wearable images that scream without sound – riffs on street style, re-envisioned fairytales and powerful heroine imagery projected across time and space. These elements make modern fashion simultaneously subversive and strong.
At the House of Blues in Anaheim, the locale’s stages and industrial spaces created the perfect tone for encores of embellishments and eye-catching patterns roaring with strength. These edgier fashions scream that the future is female – and we mean business.
