This past weekend I had the pleasure of hosting a trunk show for Mexico-based designer Carolina K. As I wrote about here, my pal Beatrice Valenzuela and I met Carolina in Mexico earlier this summer. We immediately got to talking about fashion and business and within ten minutes we were all fantasizing about doing an event together in LA. Ten bunches of marigolds, one bottle of mezcal and many Oaxacan dresses later, we had ourselves a very fun and successful afternoon. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported this fantastic designer. And for those of you who couldn't make it, here's a little taste of the afternoon.
