His silhouettes are highly detailed, boldly embellished and beautifully constructed whether in the ballroom or on the red carpet. Michelle Obama, Oprah, Duchess Kate Middleton, Emily Blunt, Aishwarya Rai, Queen Noor of Jordan and Kerry Washington are some of the many fashion icons who shined in his dresses.

With each season, LAFW is building a stronger and wider network of established brands, partnerships, and sponsors aimed at increasing the profile of West Coast Fashion.
