JEN AWAD FALL/WINTER 2013 "WE ARE NIGHT SKY"

This past Saturday, I showcased my Fall/Winter 2013 Collection "We are night Sky". A song title by Dax Riggs that really resonated with me. The show took place at the Siren Studios for Concept during LA FASHION WEEK. It was truly wonderful re-uniting with the Concept family. Mike Vensel, is not only a great designer but a consistent believer that LA Fashion Week will have its day in the sun. 

A big thank you to Aubrey Loots and the rest of the Studio DNA team and the FABULOUS Melanine Mills and her incredible Make up team!

JEN AWAD PROMOTES HEALTHY MODELS

This past March, Running in Heels featured Jen Awad in their blog Running in Heels: LA Fashion Week Promotes Healthy Looking Models. "I noticed Jen Awad also featured several models...who are clearly not a size 0 and that's OK!" Jen does not support girls who make themselves look ultra-thin but who are healthy and fit. To look healthy and be healthy with some meat on your bones is beautiful and real women can feel good about themselves wearing Jen Awad. "LA may not be the fashion capital of the world but at least most designers are willing to showcase garments that "real" women can wear."

Brenna Whitaker wears Jen Awad for Sunday Jazz Nights at the W Hollywood


If you didn't know already, Brenna Whitaker is that amazing singer who performs every Sunday at The W for Jazz Night. In fact, she is the creator of Jazz Night. Brenna has not only managed to blow people away with her beauty, stage presence and incredible vocals but she has also managed to provide the citizens of L.A. with a second option of night life for the peeps who do not wish to fist pump to shit music in a shit club.

I have had the pleasure of dressing Brenna for two consecutive weeks now for Jazz night. This past Sunday, not only did she wear one outfit but she wore two! Even though I provided wardrobe Brenna was styled by the very lovely Stylist Alexandra Estin. I especially love the Kabuki Two Piece outfit she wore for the second set.

Last Sunday night at the W hotel in Hollywood California Brenna Whitaker wore one of Jen Awad's XX Jackets from her Spring 2012 collection. Brenna and her Little Big Band play live jazz and blues music Sunday nights at the Living Room Lounge where chic attire is preferred. The blonde bombshell is one of the great voices in modern jazz and renowned by her old Hollywood glam. Catch Brenna this Saturday opening up for the Giants vs. Padres game in San Francisco singing alongside Cyndi Lauper and Janelle Monáe. Brenna will be dressed in another piece from her collection at the baseball game and will be fitted by Jen Awad for her vintage jazz performances Sunday nights at the W.

Mz Bratt wearing Jen Awad styled by Aaron Walker

Soooo back in February, the London calling crew and myself had the pleasure of meeting all kinds of cool peeps in the fashion scene out there. One of em, being a Mr. Aaron Walker who is a very talented and extremely kind stylist. He dug on my PVC trench coats and I in good faith let him hold on to them for a couple months. Needless to say... Mr. Walker was kind enough to style Mz Bratt in my elctric blue PVC Trench! Thanks Aaron! She looks bad ass!!! Aside from looking amazing, the video sends a strong message about domestic violence and women being demeaned by inescapable circumstances....I am proud to be apart of such a strong message as the Jen Awad brand encourages and embraces strong women.

Shannen Doherty wearing Jen Awad!

Soooo what feels like a million years ago, my awesome friend/talented stylist Christopher Mannor pulled some pieces from me for a shoot with 90210's O.G. Shannen Doherty for Work Mag. I was totally stoked because we all know she's a bad ass chick and my clothing is for BAD ASS CHICKS! Thats not all though! By some strange coincidence, my good friend Ally (Designer of Kittinhawk jewelry) and I, always seem to be paired together. So those fabulous spiked earrings Shannen is wearing....are by Kittinhawk!

Thanks Chris! You're the best! This collaboration is a sheer example that all of us designers, stylists and everyone else in the fashion circuit must stick together and together we shall do great things.  

Here is a photo below!

Blogger Lux Leonard, Jen Awads choice to model for ASOS Market place.

Yesterday, after a few hours of sleep and no energy, I was scheduled to bring some of my most sellable pieces for the ASOS Market place photo shoot. Kelsi of Bloggers 2.0 and Style Smith coordinated the whole thing and if you didn't think that was'nt enough, she shot the damn thing too! So basically the whole deal was to pick one of your favorite bloggers to wear my most popular pieces and shoot it in a street setting for https://marketplace.asos.com/.

   Yes folks, designers of the LAFC will have made to order pieces available for y'all very soon. Designers such as Curly-V, Kittenhawk, Victor Wilde and Alana Hale will be involved in all the fun!

   So who did I pick? I picked none other than the loveliest, bubbly, most out-going LUX LEONARD of http://www.luxlikesit.com/. She did my clothing justice by breathing life in to em! Here is a sneak peak from the shoot yesterday!

JEN AWAD FEATURED IN BRITISH VOGUE

There comes a time in a young designers life....just kidding.

Last month I went to London to introduce my f/w 2012 collection in hopes of expanding my ummm "brand awareness". 

Anyway, I was not alone, in fact if it wasnt for Kelsi Smith's mastermind idea of forming the Los Angeles Fashion Council and bringing L.A.'s finest designers to showcase our collections in London, we would never of fathomed the opportunity. Thank you Kelsi. 

 

Anyway! Our little journey did not go un-acknowledged! Thanks to British Vogue, I can now say we made a dent!

Not the cutest picture and not the most sincere quote but I definitely meant the second sentence.
