Nick Canon Presents The Zenith Collection for L.A Fashion Week
Sunday October 6th, 2019 at a strict celebrity invite only show, Nick Cannon hosted a collaboration between designers Alani Taylor and Deviant La Vie at Spaces in Hollywood.
I arrived at 5pm to get my spot and already the line to get in was down the block. By the time I made my way through the red carpet there were so many photographers from Getty Images and people on doing interviews I just went straight up to the event. There were people buzzing every where because there was free food and and open bar.
The owner of Alani Taylor, Timeekah Murphy, who is an Army combat veteran and the owner of Deviant La Vie, Brittany Duet, who is best known for her appearances on “Wild N Out.” They both have strong brands on their own right, but little do people know is that they are best friends and their brands are more intertwined than you know. Deviant La Vie is a mix of shibari and lingerie which is all made by hand. You’ve seen Deviant La Vie on Blac Chyna, Porscha Coleman, Natalie Nunn, Haley Kalil, Tiffany Haddish, Cardi B and even for Beyonce in the new Lion King music video. Alani Taylor started designing clothes because she couldn’t find anything stylish to wear while still in the Army. She moved to Los Angeles and within a few months quickly became one of the top premier designers with her unique gender neutral clothing. Deviant La Vie and Alani Taylor for the last two years in a row have dazzled crowds during LAFW Society Fashion Week shows but this year they decided to put on their own show.
The Zenith collection is an exclusive collection between Alani Taylor and Deviant La Vie. When the first model hit the runway the crowd came out of their seats with “ooh’s and ahhh’s” along with applause. The pieces are the perfect cross between elegance and sexiness. This was there first solo event and to start off the official Los Angeles Fashion week in a packed house was exciting. Check out the collection below.
