As the final shows at Paris Fashion Week came and went, the party was just getting started in Los Angeles with the city’s own Fashion Week. For most participating designers, it meant a traditional runway show at an art space in Los Angeles. Designer Jennifer Zuccarini of Fleur du Mal, however, the only lingerie brand slated on the LAFW calendar this season, opted for something a bit more festive. For the occasion, Zuccarini headed over to Sunset At Edition, the underground, speakeasy-like club boasting a ceiling of 400 disco balls which commands the attention of the Sunset Strip’s nightlifers weekend after weekend. Here, it wasn’t a runway show that took place but a series of four vignettes from House of Yes performers showcasing Fleur du Mal’s holiday collection. Simultaneously, a similar soirée took place in New York—a night also celebrating the brand’s ten anniversary calls for double the fun, after all.
Pearls! Bunny ears! Champagne! House of Yes’ diverse cast took center stage throughout the evening. Performers wore fuschia, red, and black teddies, bras, garters, and more—some pieces were adorned with heart-shaped motifs, others with floral lace embroidery. Regarding bras, a few styles were cupless, and as for underwear, some were revamped with Fleur Du Mal’s new tucking capabilities for trans women. Later came additions to the brand’s ready-to-wear line, including corsets, fringed cocktail dresses, satin slips, and crystaled-out accessories. All were complemented by iridescent glam by Too Faced.
Joining in for the evening were the likes of Rocky Barnes, Jesse Williams, Serena Karrigan, Jasmine Saunders, and Nora Mae. The crowd was dancing away to a set by DJ Rukus, with Champagne or another aptly named cocktail for the night (for example, The French 69) in hand. Cheers to ten years!\
