Los Angeles’ fashion festival Made LA returned for its second annual year last Friday at L.A. LIVE Event Deck next to The Staples Center last night (June 9). And while attendees could purchase products from Maison Kitsune, A$AP Ferg’s Traplord, and Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang—whose line will hosted its first fashion show there Saturday night—at the deck’s Shop Small at MADE LA retail market, the main event on Friday was Opening Ceremony’s first Los Angeles show.
What seemed to be a fairly ordinary show began after both industry elites and style fans got to their seats. Opening Ceremony’s designers and founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon titled the evening “A Modern Western,” making the stage a desert with cardboard cactuses shaped in letters that spelled the brand's cult name. Models strutted out in plaid dresses, velour tracksuits, and black thigh-high boots.
