LNA Presents Fall 2010, Patti Smith Dedicates Song at After Party to Alexander McQueen

LnA presented a fall 2010 collection in the pent house of Milk Studios yesterday, luring guest with the promise of a Ryan Gosling-helmed DJ booth and grungy West Coast fashions. The fact that Gosling never showed up was besides the point, however, because Patti Smith promised a "surprise" set at the after party held in the same space hours later. An overly packed house watched as Smith dedicated her last song "Because the Night" to Alexander McQueen and told the crowd his death should be a reminder to "celebrate life."

The clothes (above)—a mix of slashed tees, long tube skirts, paneled leggings, and striped mini-dresses didn't scream buy-now like their burn-hole tops from spring did, but we must admit LnA can cut an affordable tee, and designers Ashley Jane Glasson, Lauren Alexander, and April Leight clearly know how to pack a house.
