WHAT:In association with Concept Fashion Week, Fashion Group International of Los Angeles (FGILA) honors the creative relationship between a designer and their muse with their “Meet The Designer and The Muse” cocktail party. LA’s top designers will walk the red carpet arm-in-arm with their celebrity or model muse dressed in their design to celebrate these unique artistic associations. The evening’s activities will also feature a special musical performance by Annie Trousseau.
