LA Fashion Week kicked off its last year under IMG on Friday and so far, many of the shows sound less than exciting. Racked LA's been on the scene, blogging the runways, and let's just say, we feel for them. On Las Vegas denim line Sheiki Jeans: "The ultra sexy, exposed styling—bare midriffs combined with low-slung studded belts, big, teased hair, over-the-knee stiletto boots, and at least two instances of booty cleavage—upstaged the denim." It's not all bad, though: bright spots have included Whitley Kros and Gen Art, with a few more exciting shows like Crispin & Basilio to come. Keep watch on Racked LA for more images and reviews from LA Fashion week—they'll be covering the madness through Friday.
