Gypsy ’05 Unveils the Fall 2011 Men’s and Women’s Collection in a Transcendent Fashion Show
Los Angeles, CA (March 16, 2011) – Debuting the fall 2011 men’s and women’s collections, Gypsy ’05 conducted a dazzling display of earthy, bohemian style with their first ever fashion show. The Gypsy ’05 fashion show, held at the historic Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles, was a main attraction of “Style Fashion Week”, one of the most highly acclaimed event showcases of LA Fashion Week.
The star-studded event attracted over 900 guests including celebrities, stylists, members of the media, national and international buyers, and select tastemakers. The front row was lined with famous faces like Haylie Duff, Beverley Mitchell, Virginia Williams, Taylor Spreitler, Alexa Vega, Jayson Blair, Vanessa Lengies, Ben Hollinsworth, Kristy Wu, and Amber Lancaster.
The show opened with a large projection illuminating the stage walls, taking its viewers through the seasons as the images changed and colors morphed. As the animated leaves fell, the runway was transformed into an enchanted garden cueing the eco-inspired fashions. Gypsy ’05 delivered everything from their famed diaphanous silk maxi dresses to unchartered territories of knit sweaters and even explored footwear this season. Designer Osi Shoham intentionally created styles that convey a carefree romanticism while still remaining a “casual lifestyle collection.” With a focus on pastels and earth tones in flowing styles, the color palette consisted of greens, blues, and purples, exuding a lightweight, natural feel. Osi Shoham explained that airy, ethereal fashions are not solely for spring and that “people can look light and beautiful in fall as well.”
Gypsy ’05’s headquarters made a mark in the fashion world by going green in December 2009. A true revolution for the garment industry, this is the first completely solar-powered dying, printing, and manufacturing facility in Los Angeles. “People feel very connected to our clothing, not only because it’s so easy to wear, but because of our efforts to protect the planet,” said Dotan. “Gypsy ’05 is about a lifestyle, and our customers relate to the philosophy behind the brand in addition to loving the look of our clothes.”Gypsy ’05 was established in the spring of 2005 by a dynamic brother and sister duo, Osi and Dotan Shoham. Based in Los Angeles, the contemporary line reflects the Southern California lifestyle, with a focus on effortless, comfortable clothing. Using nature as the inspiration behind each collection, Gypsy ’05 is one of the fastest growing eco-friendly fashion lines on the market today.
Today, Gypsy ’05 has established itself as a well sought after brand with representation in over 1,000 stores worldwide. With a strong celebrity following, Gypsy ’05 has graced the pages of major publications both nationally and abroad. Since the creation of the brand, Osi and Dotan continue to push the envelope in creating a truly distinctive collection.
