September 29,2018, Los Angeles, CA
On September 29 guests and media gathered at The Holding Co. space for the Vicken Derderian’s Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show.
The great collaboration of two designers, Vicken and Kyung Hwa Kim, demonstrated creativity and influence of European and Asian clothing styles drastically changing the way we see modern street fashion. This is the third collaboration of the duo.
For the designer’s fourth collection, Vicken Derderian is exploring new territory, introducing traditional handwork finishes such as beading and crochet into the brands’ visual lexicon.
Kim, who brings her trademark softness to the collection, the perfect juxtaposition to Derderian’s clean, architecturally-inspired designs. The pair first met at the Academy of Art University, and reconnected during their shared time at BCBG Max Azria.
Vicken shared with HGM his next fashion show will take place in Armenia in November of this year.
The show was organized with the help of the LuxeLab in association with L’Oréal Professionnel as the exclusive Runway Hair Team, Chic Studios as the Official Makeup Partner, and nails by LA-based Ani Michele. Footwear is provided by Charles David. The production of the event is made possible with the incredible support of Neptune Productions.
