Los Angeles, Mash Gallery announces the premiere of “CoutureMash” celebrating art, fashion and their intersections with Los Angeles designers Monah Li of Monah Li Designs, Laura Byrnes of Pin Up Girl Clothing and Haleh Mashian of Maison H, November 17 through December 22 at the Mash Gallery.
Fashion and art collide in a high-energy opening night runway show produced by Mash Gallery and conceived by curator Lisa Derrick, who says, “I had long envisioned an art show where the artists whose works were on the walls would model Los Angeles designers. When I saw Haleh Mashian’s art-inspired Maison H. line, it clicked, and I began to build an art show that elaborated on the influences present in Southern California art and fashion.” Los Angeles curator and journalist Lisa Derrick has an eye for creative talent with an edge.
