Los Angeles Fashion Week has come and gone, but the looks are staying with us. Between Oct. 19 and Oct. 22, Art Hearts Fashion presented a LAFW week production with over 30 designers, including some heavy weight names such as Natalia Fedner and Michael Costello.
All the brands brought their own personal flavor and style to the runway, creating a diverse amount of looks that graced the Majestic Downtown venue. After recovering from the LAFW week high, here at Loop Magazine, we are now eager to see these looks hit the streets of Los Angeles and the rest of the world.
And being a nightlife magazine, we have some personal favs that we are dying to see rocked in LA’s top restaurants, bars, clubs and venues. See our top picks below!

Los Angeles is the place to push the boundaries of nightlife fashion. There are more options that the traditional little black dress or infamous jeans and going out top combo. This patchwork set from Tell The Truth highlights that, as this ensemble would fit right in at a trendy bar and club.
Sustainable and fashionable go together with Love for Upcycling. This brand not only stuns with their denim looks, but also their purpose. During LAFW they also held a donation drive were all clothes will be given to LA’s homeless population on Skid Row.
Fans were saddened to hear Michael Costello announce his retirement at the end of his runway show. However, the designer went out with a bang, and all his looks belonged in a red carpet glamour spread. We know this fire-engine sparkly red evening gown and headpiece is overdoing it for most nightlife events, but it’s perfect for those attending an upcoming gala or formal dance. We just had to include it!
For the readers who have an occasion for the above Costello dress, we are begging you to tell your peers to wear this Walter Mendez couture evening dress. The contrasting halves on the bodice, the slit, the fabric, everything about this piece is stunning and deserves all the attention.
At Loop, when we look for fashion recommendations, we are looking for pieces that will make you stand out in the crowd. This Coral Castillo dress from her Metaphor collection is not only sustainably produced, but the texture and silhouette gives a unique effect that highlights the Aztec culture Castillo used for inspiration.
One of the biggest names to present at Art Hearts’ LAFW, Natalia Fedner brought in a large crowd Sunday evening. Known for her patented stretch liquid metal fashion, her looks have graced top A-listers, including Beyoncé! One look at her designs and you can see why she’s caught Hollywood’s attention. This shimmering gold chain-link dress was even more stunning in person and is sure to dazzle any crowd you’re around, literally and figuratively.
Switch out your little black dress for this black two piece from Yasaman Fashion. From dinner to a club, this versatile ensemble can be a nightlife fashion staple.
Another big name to present this past weekend was Michael Ngo. The designer has been seen on some top celebrities including Chloe Bailey, Lizzo, Latto and Megan Thee Stallion. We especially love this piece that looks like belongs in Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour, and who better to model it than Queen Bey’s very own backup dancer, Jonte Moaning.
It’s not just the ladies who know how to slay nightlife-worthy fashion on the runway. Designer and Arts Hearts Fashion founder Erik Rosete‘s Mister Triple X collection featured a slew of attention grabbing menswear looks that would kill it after dark. We could totally see this sleeveless, exotic skin-inspired jumpsuit turning heads on the dance floor at a West Hollywood hotspot.
Giannina Azar’s collection was Elle Wood’s dream come to life. The entirely hot pink collection showcased a variety of fabrics, silhouettes, and styles but we can’t stop thinking about this puffy dress. We’ve seen textures such as feathers make a comeback, but this fabric presents a whole new dimension to the trend and we’re loving it.
