Talk about a woman on a mission. Eni Buiron has made her life’s mission about celebrating inner creativity, passion, love and the need to bring otherworldly beauty and purpose to herself, her family, and others through her work as a fashion designer and as a motivator for helping others give back. 2017 TPFW opens with a bang- a beautiful story of a woman charged by life and the love of art, her daughters, and the world around her.

For anyone looking for a extra push to follow their heart, their passions, and dream big…this is a story for you and for bringing in the New Year with the notion that anything you want is possible. A valuable lesson Eni Buiron wants to pass on, so read on. This shoot is a celebration of her most recent collection Le Parisienne at NYFW16.

Jene Park

Thomas WyldeLos Angeles, CAPhoto & Story by Lauri Levenfeld

For most, there is the dream of someday walking down the Red Carpet. For Jene Park, the dream is to dress the ones that do (in the most kickass, rock-n-roll glamour she can possibly create mind you). Park, of the iconic brand Thomas Wylde, dresses all the A-listers. She puts her heart and
soul into everything she does. But her greatest achievement and best product, her twin teenage girls, who have sparked a continued inspiration and need to keep creating and staying passionate. This is a story about a woman with a joie de vivre that propels her and an honest perception that excels her.

Lubov Azria

For BCBG Max Azria GroupLos Angeles, CAPhotos & Story by Lauri Levenfeld

Lubov Azria tells the story of when she was 18 and new to Los Angeles,  she walked by a department store and was stopped by the most gorgeous dress sparkling in the window. It was love at first sight! She went inside to try it on, everything was perfect from the fit to the feel.

This day changed her forever and gave Azria the purpose to follow her dreams and
become the woman she is today. It was at this moment that the DNA of BCBGMAXAZRIA was born. I met Lubov at an intimate dinner she hosted for 45 women held in San Francisco. After Lubov told her story, she asked everyone in the room to introduce themselves (a vital process for her to learn and know about everyone in the room and one we dedicated an hour to during dinner). Instead of asking “What each person did”, the questions were about inspiration, favorite quotes, and a first job.…

Laura O’Dell

Fashion DesignerSilverlake, CAPhotos & Story by Lauri Levenfeld

There is good design in everything touched by Laura O’Dell. Not only is she one half of the coolest wife & husband fashion design duo, she is now owner of the cheeky, fun Bucks and Does boutique in Silverlake (the hipster hood of LA). The storefront houses Laura’s most chic curation, a style that is uniquely her own.

The yurt in the back acting as the studio design center showcases just how different and out of the box the O’Dells choose to go. Laura with her upbeat attitude and fun-loving family has created a dream job situation where she can do and be what she loves, and still have time to custom design the wall paper.
