About the Event
On October 26, 2015 Fashion designer Pia Gladys Perey in partnership with the Sofitel Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills unveiled her 2016 Spring/Summer line with a fashion show and gala dinner Friday night. The invite-only gala dinner sent out four courses to guests that included celebrities, top stylists, fashion bloggers, and an array of taste makers.
Perey’s inspiration for the 2016 Spring/Summer line spawned from concept of “defying gravity.” And she delivered in spades by wowing the crowd with a spectacular display of ethereal gowns in stunning white, glittery gold and sumptuous pink. Her garments were all well fitted to the models. The draping was superb. It emphasized the silhouettes without being vulgar.
