Front Row Diary [LAFW]: Esther Perbandt


This year, LA Fashion Week took place at the modern yet trendy space within Columbia Square in Hollywood, CA. Amongst all of the designers debuting collections on the runway this year, we discovered an interesting out-of-town designer. Hailing all the way from Berlin, Esther Perbandt is a newcomer to LA Fashion Week, although an already familiar face within the European fashion world. Her line was the last to appear at this year’s event, but perhaps because of this reason, she made a lasting impression by showcasing one of the best clothing lines we’ve seen yet this year.



Accompanying her was German music composer Sven Helbig, along with a brigade of unique, and diverse runway models. The show began with a short monologue video performed by the designer herself. Esther presented a clean monochrome collection, which was classic in style, and with minimal edge. What made the show extraordinary was legendary model Veruschka, hitting the runway, and closing the show. What was particularly distinctive to Esther’s line was the precise tailoring, and manipulation of shape, detail features seen on each piece down the runway. We can easily anticipate LA fashion elites donning over these pieces. With androgynous silhouettes, and beautifully deconstructed work wear Esther’s winter collection, can be summarized as sleek, simple, artfully tailored street wear.
