MADISON LA MEN'S STORE LAUNCH


I STYLED A MANNEQUIN. SURREAL FEELINGS ENSUE.

It's not an everyday occurrence that you get to style a mannequin, especially not for the legendary, LA-based Madison store. I've always been a huge fan of their stores and the incredible edit and breadth of contemporary, high-end brands (think Givenchy, Valentino, Acne, Alexander Wang and the like!) for womenswear. When they approached me to style one of their mannequins (along with Reyal Fashion, Zack Tanck and Peter Adrian), I jumped on the opportunity without any hesitation!

Much like their women's store, the Madison men's shop selectively curates from some of the hottest menswear labels -- there's an assortment of investment, luxe basics from BLK Denim, Rag and Bone and Acne. I stylized my mannequin with minimalist chic in mind, greatly inspired by Swedish streetstyle. It was such a proud moment for me to share my creation to all the guests, friends and my beloved boyfriend in attendance. There was such an outpouring of love and excitement! I couldn't have asked for a better night--and a first in my experience as a blogger--thank you so much Madison LA and Bollare for having me!
