Seattle Fashion Week 2009
Thursday Night Featured Independent Artists. One label that stood out was Lavsh by Alfred Lape
Lape is a very driven, disciplined and focused 25 year-old self taught fashion designer. Talking with him for 5-minutes or even observing his demeanor reflects this. Likewise, his clothes demonstrate his ability and inspiration of individuality and luxury in the garments he handcrafts. Taken from Tom Ford, “True Luxury is found in clothing that has been shaped and honed by human hand,” Lape holds true to this as he is responsible for selection of fabrics, design, sketching and production. One-of-a-kind garmets are available for purchase. Overall I applaud Lavsh & their ingenuity in modern menswear. My only question is, does he ever take off his shades?
