Candice and Vanessa to close out LAFW

LA Fashion Week (LAFW) celebrates its fourth season of collections running March 17-19, kicking off the Fall/Winter event series on March 16th, 2017 with its Opening Reception at the Rooftop Loft at the W Hollywood, hosted by Vanessa Simmons. Her collaboration with designer Candice Cuoco will be unveiled at an exclusive engagement on Sunday, March 19th in a bookend closing to LAFW FW17.


“Los Angeles is oozing with amazing energy right now – we’re living in a cultural renaissance for fashion, art, and music. LA Fashion Week has done an amazing job of bringing these elements together, and I can’t wait for everyone to experience my take on contemporary cool. Collaborating with Candice on Bad Butterfly has been incredible. She has completely taken me out of my comfort zone as a designer, and has been teaching me the true fundamentals of fashion and design. This collection has transformed my skills and I’m super proud to be a part of something so amazing,” says Simmons.


LA Fashion Week’s Fall/Winter 2017 shows will explore new ways of highlighting each brand’s vision… Project Runway alumni Candice Cuoco and host Vanessa Simmons partner up to close out the FW17 season on Sunday, March 19 with the debut of their collaborative collection Bad Butterfly.
