On September 5th, I had the opportunity to stop by The Patio on Goldfinch once again for the delicious brunch and of course, to see some of the Spring 15' designs from FWSD designer, Lady Lane.https://www.facebook.com/FashionWeekSD/photos/a.903290719766697.1073741881.178908118871631/903292133099889/?type=3&theater
The brand is best described as "vintage inspired women's wear for real women" according to the FWSD website, and I felt like the description perfectly matched the vibe throughout the duration of the event. Each outfit radiated a familiar yet comforting old-timey feel (think Peggy Carter from the Captain America films or the television series, Agent Carter) while keeping up with the latest fads of today. Featuring femininely modest necklines, intricate beading, and eye-catching patterns, Lady Lane is the brand to keep you on your toes, but in a good way.https://www.facebook.com/FashionWeekSD/photos/a.903290719766697.1073741881.178908118871631/903291509766618/?type=3&theater
Rachel Lane, the designer, had her beginnings at the age of eight after receiving her first sewing machine. Since then, what was once just a hobby turned into her career; it led to her
3rd place win as Best Designer of the Year at FWSD 14' with the same collection that was showcased at the event. Having seen it myself, it's easy to see why- the clothing line uplifts women in a positive way with it's comfortable yet aesthetically standout pieces. Using fabrics that she personally sources, she intertwines the materials with inspiration from, in my opinion, the fashion from the 1930's and beyond, allowing onlookers a flash of the past. It's no wonder the brand continues to be a fan-favorite, and now mine as well. I'm looking forward to seeing her new designs hitting the runways of San Diego this October.
