Los Angeles Fashion Week: Kevan Hall Spring 09

Los Angeles Fashion Week designers couldn't have a worse hand in life having to show after the life-altering New York, London, and Paris collections--alas, we suppose they could relocate to New York and fight for a time slot (not that that's a particularly fun prospect either). We started our Los Angeles coverage off with Kevan Hall and promptly skipped over to his biography page (how did we know it would be there) to find out that the designer knew he wanted to be a fashion designer from the age of seven. As much as we want to talk about his Spring 09 collection that had some really beautiful pleating and Monique Lhuillier-happy gowns, we have to call him out on the indulgence. In no other profession is it permissible to include in your biography some blurb about things you thought and felt when you were seven. Does he (or any of these designers) think that has anything to do with it? Obviously they're reaching for some "I'm a designer prodigy" sentiment but, designers, if that was so, wouldn't you at least be showing in New York by now? We know it's a little harsh, and a little uncalled for on a Monday morning, but it just struck a nerve with us. Kevan Hall, you made some lovely dresses this season.
