Designer Ina Soltani‘s first runway show was the fabulous finale for the 2011 Style Fashion Week LA. Her colorful luxe collection was shown at the renovated cathedral space, Vibiana. On the runway: A lively and colorful mix of red carpet-worthy gowns and flirty short cocktail dresses in shimmering silks, satin, chiffon and washed leathers.
Soltani’s sexy show-stopping dresses have been worn by Hollywood’s hottest celebs including “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, Emily Blunt, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Kristin Cavalleri, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, and Carrie Underwood. Stylist Jonas Halbert was already eyeing Soltani’s runway outfits for a fashion shoot with Cameron Diaz this week.
“I love Ina Soltani as designer for red carpet, celebrities, and shoots,” Halbert said. “It’s all about color combinations, special fabrics and even cool leather pieces. I’m always looking for something special and Ina’s washed leathers are amazing.”
The Dish Rag’s Tom Julian (official style seer for Oscar.com) chatted with Ina after the show about her collection, her inspiration, fans and expansion plans.
