LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Los Angeles Jewelry, Antique & Design Show will kick off with a stylish Opening Night Premiere Party benefitting the FIDM Museum Fashion Council. Taking place Wednesday, January 15 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, South Hall, the evening’s festivities features food, wine, music, and an exclusive fashion program showcasing a curated exhibit of noteworthy pieces from The Helen Larson Historic Fashion Collection and a high-end fashion show with couture and celebrity designers Kevan Hall and Sue Wong.

Proceeds from the Opening Night Premiere Party will benefit the FIDM Museum Fashion Council. A volunteer group dedicated to supporting the museum’s educational goals, as well as the acquisition of important objects, their current focus is fundraising to support the purchase of The Helen Larson Historic Fashion Collection—1,400 pieces of clothing and accessories dating from the 1600s to the 1930s, assembled by Southern Californian Helen Larson between 1946 and 1996. Highlights include a c. 1610 Italian jerkin, eighteenth-century cloth-of-silver and gold garments, nineteenth-century haute couture, and many ensembles with royal provenance, including over 30 objects worn by Queen Victoria. The collection includes Helen Larson’s personal correspondence with eminent fashion curators and dealers, and purchase records. Select pieces from this world-class collection will be on view in a special exhibit curated by Kevin Jones, Curator of the FIDM Museum. Titled, Collecting Style/Making History: The Helen Larson Historic Fashion Collection, the exhibit will feature pieces universally acknowledged for object rarity and provenance.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Los Angeles Jewelry, Antique & Design Show to raise awareness and support to acquire this important collection,” states Curator, Kevin Jones. “The show’s commitment to high caliber art, design, and decorative works makes it the ideal platform for our organization. The high-energy and sophistication of the Opening Night Premiere Party is an ideal fit for our supporters.”

The Opening Night Premiere Party will also include high-end fashion showcase featuring Los Angeles-based design houses. This exciting program will feature several couture and celebrity designers including Kevan Hall and Sue Wong creating in a couture experience. Models wearing designer pieces will circulate among guests and selectively pose on pedestals during the course of the evening.
