L.A. Fashion Weekend Wrap Up: Day 1

L.A. Fashion Weekend kicked off at Sunset Gower Studios Friday night with an opening performance by Christina Milian, who also debuted her line of sunglasses. Fashion lovers gathered around the runway to watch bikini bodies debut lines by a.Che, Kooey and Teeki.

Check out our live coverage:

Attendees mingled, enjoyed bottomless cocktails from the open bar courtesy of Domenico Winery, Six Rivers Brewery, Tequila Mar Azul and Premier Label Water Company. Party goers also ate delicious hors’d’oeuvres from Crustacean.

Pop-up boutiques at the event offered jewelry by Morning Glory, Wishcraft by Joanna Settoo and the Mia Milano Collection. T-shirts were screen printed on the spot by Matt Geiger’s FSP Designs.

Check out our red carpet and vendor photos:


a.Che showcased bold colors, animal prints and two piece bikinis as well as one pieces with matching head gear. Find the looks at http://www.acheswimwear.com

Teeki surprised the audience by having a beautiful young girl grace the runway wearing a bright yellow two piece bikini.

What surprised us about Teeki was the fact that the “bikinis are made with real water bottles.” Designer Lindsay Hemric noted that her bikinis are eco-friendly and don’t sag when wet. Hemric said it took trial and error to discover that recycled water bottles worked perfectly. She tried bamboo but the fabric was too flexible. Teeki bikinis are available at http://www.teekilove.com where bottoms and tops both sell for $50 each. A few of our favorite looks are featured below:

Kooey debuted swim suits made of bright colors, combining orange, whites and plums. The line offered high waist, two piece bikinis as well as sexy one pieces. Follow Kooey on Facebook: 

Notable favories include the following:

Unlike the other lines, Kooey offered two looks for men.
