“Also, that night at MOCA, Downtown Los Angeles Fashion Week will host a Valentino Vintage Runway Show presented by Elizabeth Mason of the vintage store, The Paper Bag Princess. The clothes should be simply spectacular, and actress Maria Bello will receive the L.A. Spirit Award, which will award a fashion student $2500 dollars in scholarship. The runway show will be produced by Elizabeth Mason, and since it’s been the year of Valentino (the doc “The Last Emperor” is no doubt going to be Oscar nominated), she could not have made a more timely choice. Tickets for that are available to the public at Downtownlafashionweek.com – and no tickets will be sold at the door.”
