Shows go on � in L.A.

In the run-up to New York Fashion Week, Los Angeles found itself abuzz with a series of high-profile fashion happenings, many by designers, including Rachel Zoe and Tommy Hilfiger, who opted for L.A.-area venues and weather instead of showing in the Big Apple this season. Here's a look at those fashion shows by designers in a SoCal state of mind.


A brand to know: Club Monaco

NEW YORK - It's time to join the club - Club Monaco, that is. This Canadian retail concept with stores across the country is owned by Polo Ralph Lauren and specializes in mid-priced, high-end casual clothing, shoes and accessories for women and men. (Think J. Crew or Banana Republic, but more relaxed and unexpected.)


Coral Gables jewelry company focuses on female empowerment

In 2009, Tiffany Dominguez of Miami opened her online-only business with only one employee handling all the work: herself. She named her new jewelry company T. Audrey, combining her name and that of her idol, Audrey Hepburn. The name evolved into Taudrey, as fans began pronouncing it as one word.


Peixoto swimwear founder holds monthly Beach workouts with fans

On the second Saturday of each month, Peixoto founder Mauricio Esquenazi can be found working out in the sand with “fans” of the swimsuit brand. Peixoto’s buyers are mostly active women who want to stay fit, so Esquenazi thought offering workouts led by women trainers would result in a stronger connection with customers.


Only recycled materials used in FIU graduate’s fashion show

Two years ago, Amira Ajlouni, a graduate student from the School of Architecture at Florida International University, prepared her master’s class thesis project. Instead of designing a building, she took an alternative route where the focus of her project would center on sustainability. She created a fashion show with design pieces that only incorporated recycled materials.
