Location: Los Angeles, California
I recently had the opportunity to become acquainted with LA-based designer Kevan Hall when we were both serving as judges for Texas Southern University’s competition For The Sake of Art. I recently went for a visit to Los Angeles, so I stopped by his atelier to check out all his beautiful clothing and some of the things he’s working on for Fall. I was immediately drawn to this stunning black dress with beige-underlay. The deep v-neck, tight waist band and peek-a-boo lower skirt are so figure flattering. His strips of rich black fabric are carefully aligned to make the most stunning pattern. He had so many beautiful gowns to choose from..I wanted to model them all!
In 1998 Kevan was called in to revive the house of Halston and served as Creative Director there for 3 years. This stint exposed him to major fashion houses as well as celebrities. In 2002 Kevan launched his own line, Kevan Hall Collection as has since succeeded to dress fashionable women all over the country. Some of his celebrity clients include Renee Zellweger, Vanessa Williams, Tina Fey, Michelle Obama, Taraji P. Henson, and Kerry Washington.
Oh, and let me mention that Kevan is a super nice, easy to work with guy and I had the best time hanging out with him and his assistant Debbie. Can’t wait to go back!
