Designer and the Muse offers a unique opportunity for fashion designers to showcase their amazing talent celebrating the best of LA fashion.

Á LA Mode Productions is pleased to announce the first “DESIGNER and THE MUSE” on October 3, 2013 from 6PM to 9PM at The Sofitel West Hollywood's Riviera 31. Spearheaded by Susan Stein, Fashion Editor of Palm Springs Life Magazine, and fashion publicist Dorothy Mannfolk, this Invitation-Only event will showcase the finest brands by couture and ready-to-wear contemporary designers who will appear alongside their inspirational “Muses” and their singular creations.

The evening brings together Hollywood’s A-List Designers and their muses with the city’s fashion cognoscenti – from editors, photographers and stylists to studio costume department heads and fashion reporters. Susan explains that the event was organized to provide a platform to both herald and celebrate the finest fashion LA has to offer. “This is a wonderful opportunity for engaging these fashion masters in an up-close and personal way. They will provide insights into their creative processes and express their views on the state and the future of California style with the city’s fashion community,” says Susan. The event promises to be an elegant gathering with a red carpet reception, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. “DESIGNER and THE MUSE” is merely the first in what Á LA Mode Productions intends to be a series of Los Angeles fashion events highlighting its amazing talents.

Á LA MODE PRODUCTIONS was co-founded by SUSAN STEIN, Creative Producer of Fashion Week El Paseo (a Palm Springs Life Magazine event) in Palm Desert, CA, and Fashion Editor of Palm Springs Life Magazine. A truly consummate professional with over thirty years of experience in the fashion and retail industries, Susan has not only gained an invaluable insider knowledge and cachet within these fields but has established much deserved recognition for dependable expertise, creative strategies and delivering laudable results.

DOROTHY MANNFOLK, Á LA MODE PRODUCTIONS co-founder, began her PR career when she joined a specialty public relations firm handling media relations, special events planning, along with every aspect of accounts servicing for luxury fashion and retail clients. Recognizing a lack of effective public relations representation for the growing west coast fashion and beauty industries, she established Mannfolk Public Relations in 1998. Since then, she has successfully created and developed brand and product awareness for countless fashion, beauty, and lifestyle clients across all media channels.

Susan Stein and Dorothy Mannfolk established Á La Mode Productions in 2013, after working together at El Paseo Fashion Week 2013. Realizing the need for a premier fashion event in Los Angeles, the two combined their experience and expertise in the fashion industry to produce the most anticipated annual Los Angeles fashion event.

Palm Springs Life magazine has represented the greater Palm Springs area for 55 years. Their award-winning monthly publication, recognized as “California’s Prestige Magazine,” is a perfect reflection of the special lifestyle of the desert resort communities. Palm Springs Life monthly editorial includes: the social scene, upcoming events including major golf and tennis tournaments, luxury homes, fine dining, fashion, travel, the arts and profiles of celebrity and business leaders.
