A rainy day in Hollywood, CA didn’t stop fashionistas from attending the Bikini Rock Fashion Show at the Music Box this past Friday. We saw a number of familiar designers from L.A. Fashion Week including Annie Le’s Annie and Jade (Project Ethos), Teeki Bikinis (L.A. Fashion Weekend) and familiar brands like RedHawk Brigade and Grow, whom we’ve photographed at past Graffiti Beach events. Unfortunately, we had to duck out before the third fashion show of the night but luckily we’ve covered a few of the designers numerous times before: Teeki Bikinis (L.A. Fashion Weekend at Sunset Gower Studios) and Cheaky Swimwear (back in August with Devin Lucien).
The first show was called “Girls Night Out,” and featured sandals from Gabby Alexandra (G.A.Y. Sandals):
Next was Dustie Doll Clothing, which consisted of stylish dresses with bold prints that oozed chic style. Created by Dustie Smith, an Anaheim native, her designs have been sold in L.A. boutique shops including Fred Segal, Kitson and Bloomingdales:
We also saw looks from Keisha Audrey and JessBee Designs:
Host Alex Curry wore a dress from the Annie and Jade Collection by familiar L.A. Fashion Week designer Annie Le:

The second show featured looks for both men and women courtesy of RedHawk Brigade. Bold colors and comfortable fabrics gave this collection a California surfer vibe:
Next, we saw edgy L.A. inspired looks from Grow paired with Jackie Schmitt Silver Works:
HA-67 jeans were paired with Tarnished Jewelry and Screaming Crest:
Junk Underjeans hit the runway next giving men a colorful, stylish option in boxer briefs:
Unfortunately, we had to duck out and missed Gorgeous Got a Gun, but the last time we reviewed them, we said, “This band is definitely one to watch as they deliver fast-paced guitar riffs courtesy of Ernesto Rivas, explosive drum beats a la Josh Zeigler, bass thumping beats from Jimi Blaze and overall edgy songs that will make your body move.” See photos of their performance at Bikini Rock Holiday: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=252571&id=38261436734
Held on a cold and rainy day, the Bikini Rock Holiday event was not as packed at the last event in June. Perhaps it was because the majority of the audience flocked to the Music Box for the RAWards and decided not to stick around. Maybe people were just tired since the fashion show was not the main attraction this time around. Instead, the RAWards were held at 8pm, followed by the Bikini Rock “after-party.” Nonetheless, the fashion was great and the models were hot as usual.
