Future Couture

| August 28, 2012 | Parties

Some 300 stylistas gathered at South Coast Plaza to see what the future of fashion looks like—and there couldn’t have been a better backdrop than AnQi. Trendsetters like 88 Orange’s Heather Artukovich and stylist Leslie Christen were among the fashionable guests, who mingled with designers of tomorrow, sipped Champagne and nibbled on AnQi’s tasty delights before models took to the glass catwalk donned in creations by Art Institute students. Serving as judges: AnQi’s own Elizabeth An, Real Housewives co-star Heather Dubrow, shoe designer Taryn Rose—and yours truly. Top honors went to grad student Coral Castillo for her glam Gold Legend gown and undergrad Michelle Huynh, whose floral designs made all the girly girls sigh in unison. I’d say the future of fashion is in good hands. Photos by Terry Huy
