Ashton Michael / Los Angeles

I'm not going to lie when I say that I was lying in wait for this show. That being said let's get right to the the highlight of the show, the model casting, and it was mind blowingly superb. Tattooed, angular faced models with slicked back hair, if any at all, stormed down the runway with a ruggedness that was in opposition of the soft color palette. Tattoos were a requirement and we were graced with full sleeves and intricately beautiful full head ink. A full collection in pink sounds a little daunting with possibilities for episodes of redundancy, however each piece stood its own ground.  Well constructed ensembles were shown layered with strategically placed straps that danced down the runway. Rich leather pieces in classic black added to the goth-grunge edge of the show. This presentation was an exercise in balancing soft and hard. From the soft pink rose petals that fell in the background to witnessing intense stares from the models at the end of the runway. The worlds of delicate and fierce came together ever so beautifully in this collection and was the perfect way to end the evening.



p.s. the model casting.... :)
