This year it seems like LA Fashion Week really stepped up it's game. I was surprised to be invited to so many fun parties, exciting collection launches, and runway shows. One of the events I had the pleasure of attending was the launch of Sophie Simmons' new fashion line in collaboration with The Style Club LA.
Sophie is rock royalty being the daughter of Kiss' Gene Simmons, and also quite beautiful. Despite her assets she is also insanely sweet, down to earth, and fashionable. This is her first collection which she aims to be fashion forward, but also friendly to different body sizes. The clothes are also at a very affordable price point, which is awesome!
Sophie says: “I’m extremely passionate about body image and want to be an advocate and role model to other young women to encourage them to embrace who they are and what makes them unique. My collection is designed to inspire women of different shapes and sizes to take risks when dressing but still feel confident."
I love that she is creating a line for women that aren't just a size "2", and making positive movements in empowering women of different shapes and sizes. Each piece is named after a different inspirational woman from Oprah to Hillary Clinton. The clothes themselves definitely have an L.A. vibe, with a pinch of rock and roll. She plays with crop tops, a bit of glitz, and throws in some vegan leather and knits. Below you can see some of my favorite pieces from the line which launched just a few days ago. You can shop the full collection here. Congrats on your first collection Sophie!
