BoxEight, a collaborative of designers and artists, took over the ballroom of the legendary Los Angeles Theatre (built by Charlie Chaplin) to present shows it had funded featuring the work of 10 West Coast firms. The 17 designs, all with a Goth traveling-circus undercurrent, ranged from the wearable — Kristen Coates’ feather-trimmed black chiffon dress — to the highly theatrical — Adele Mildred’s Victorian-style cage skirts and Goddollars’ burlesque-ready, jet-beaded necklace top. Other standouts came from two Gen Art alumni: Suzy Yun’s off-white, racer-back balloon dress at Unhee and Kit Pistol’s ruffled black corduroy coat.
Two stand-alone shows were also added to the mix. Jared Gold’s Black Chandelier collection evoked a utilitarian prairie girl in such looks as a flirty Holly Hobbie dress — worn by a fuchsia-tressed drag queen — military-inspired swing coats and a fun gingham skirt paired with a gold-foil-motif hoodie. The next night, Eduardo Lucero showed his signature Eighties-style glam evening pieces, this time with peekaboo cutouts. The best in show here: his elegant brown caftan dress.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
