LA-based Lloyd Klein returns to El Paseo Fashion Week

Mar '12
Fashion Week El Paseo (March 16 – 24) will present a rousing runway show by featured designer Lloyd Klein who will debut two new collections at the seventh-annual event in Palm Desert on Tuesday, March 20 at 8 p.m.

Fashion Week El Paseo - the West Coast's most anticipated fashion event unfolds March 16-24, 2012, in the Fashion Week Tent on El Paseo, the Coachella Valley's most fashionable shopping district.

The Parisian Los Angeles-based designer will present his “LKLA” (Lloyd Klein Los Angeles) line of contemporary sportswear and “LKBH”(Lloyd Klein Beverly Hills) his collection of evening gowns inspired by his Couture Collection.

“I am enormously excited to return to share my two newest collections at Fashion Week El Paseo to an audience of sophisticated consumers and tastemakers in a glamorous setting in the spectacular desert resorts,” said Lloyd Klein. Klein's runway show will benefit two local charities -- The Living Desert and Desert AIDS Project.

Lloyd Klein has produced spectacular couture collections since launching his career most notably as head designer of Madame Grès in Paris at the age of 23. His red carpet gowns and highly tailored suits are worn regularly at nightly premiers and awards shows in Hollywood and seen monthly in the pages of fashion editorials year round. For the 2010 Emmy Awards, actress Naya Rivera from television's “Glee” cast, dazzled the red carpet wearing one of Lloyd Klein's tuxedo gowns and was chosen Best Dressed by In-Style Magazine.

Fashion Week El Paseo is the premier consumer-driven fashion experience showcasing the best of West Coast design. This event also welcomes the industry and has hosted more than 30,000 guests in its last six years.

Showcasing the newest collections by top designers, as well as fresh ideas by emerging designers from Los Angeles' Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Fashion Week El Paseo is one of the desert's most popular events and features a fun-filled week of runway and trunk shows, champagne receptions, after parties, in-store events, and events to benefit local charities.

An exciting Fashion Week El Paseo highlight will be an appearance by 7 Project Runway designers including Michael Costello and others from the popular realty TV series.

Other Fashion Week events include an Evening of Fashion featuring Saks Fifth Avenue; La Chien, a day devoted to canine couture fashion, and a runway show featuring more than 15 retailers from the El Paseo shopping district.

Fashion Week El Paseo is presented by Integrated Wealth Management with the sponsorship support of the City of Palm Desert, El Paseo Merchants Association, Land Rover of Rancho Mirage, Bebe, Time Warner, El Paseo Jewelry and Valley View Dental.

Palm Springs Life is the essential lifestyle magazine for the greater Palm Springs communities, offering richly drawn celebrity profiles; intelligent features on contemporary culture, art, architecture, and lifestyle trends; a who's who on the desert's vibrant social scene; and the ultimate guide for what to do, where to go and what to wear. Palm Springs Life has enriched the lives of residents and visitors from around the world for more than 50 years, a rare feat in publishing.

Palm Springs Life is published by Desert Publications Inc., which also produces lifestyle magazines and visitor publications in Pebble Beach, New Mexico, Houston, Newport Beach, and other West Coast destinations.
