Hood By Air Does Los Angeles
Hood By Air
Not gonna lie, I never got into street wear or Hood By Air as a brand. And not until Queen Bey donned in a haltered fur by the brand, paired with a Yeezy Season3 bodysuit, did I even care to look at their Fall/Winter 2016 NYFW show.
However, the MADE LA HBA and Moschino show, were all everyone in my "fashion circle," were talking about. Originally, I wasn't gonna go. It wasn't until the night before the event that I purchased my ticket, and let me just say...I am glad I did.
If you know anything about LA and our unofficial "Fashion Weak" (yes weak, as in weak as hell), you'd know that the fashion shows have no fashion. But let me tell you how HBA and Moschino did a hell of a job bringing out the crowd that understands serving and creating looks. Even some of my Instagram faves like Sami Miro and NikotheIkon, were in attendance. If I could've created the perfect Fashion Utopia last weekend, this was it.
In true Raisa fashion, I was late to the show and caught the tail of the performance arts, Kanye-esq, visual display of HBA clothes. There was lots of screaming, dust, broken heels, "bloody" faces, and DENIM (a yes for me)! All in all, I didn't quite understand the looks, but Shayne Oliver knows his audience, and does a great job at feeding their souls, and aesthetic.
After the show, the best DJ I've heard in a long while, delivered an amazing set that had us all dancing, complimenting outfits, and snapping pics. I spent the entire hour in the Beer Garden bc, beer, and networked with some of the coolest bloggers, designers, and stylist in LA.
I snapped quite a few of my favorite looks on other attendees....the personal style was everything!!!
The super babe, Niko the Ikon, whom BTW, I had no idea was him until I looked at my pictures later like, "wait a damn minute, that was him, I love his work"

Super Cute babe in her Cow two piece and Vetements Sock Boots
Okay so, the fit on the right was SUPER cute in person. It was a knit two piece resembling Denim. The trio was really cute.
I LOVED Alysias' denim choker and square toed boots
The Guy in the middle is my new bae! Super bae, actually.
The 69us Installation was so cute
Obsessed with her Orange boots
The Suede persuade me
(you see what I did there)
They let me take the pic...I guess that's what having 'Zero Fucks to Give' feels like. Both jackets were a "YES" for me
Doma's outfit was so cute! Super glad she listens to my fashion advice and let me dress her, a lot lol. Super mad we didn't capture the full look.
MADE LA threw one hell of an event! KUDDOS..
