Donatella Versace is named global ambassador of the Los Angeles LGBT Center

Donatella Versace has been named global ambassador of the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

“It’s an honor to become the first-ever global ambassador of the Los Angeles LGBT Center,” the chief creative officer of Versace said. “My first visit to the Center is one of my favorite memories of L.A. — I truly felt like I had come home. I got to shine a light on the organization’s beautiful clients and I’m so proud to formalize and continue this partnership so I can magnify the life-changing work of the world’s largest LGBTQ+ nonprofit.”

As part of the celebrations, Versace was joined by three-time NBA championship winner, brand ambassador and LGBTQ ally Dwyane Wade to cohost a March 8 fundraiser for the Center.

Building on the executive’s ongoing partnership with the organization, the fashion house donated $50,000 in support of the Center while Wade announced that he would be matching their gift to support healthcare, legal aid, housing, food and nutrition, education and employment to LGBTQ individuals in need.

“I’m beyond proud to be supporting the Center. There are young folks who need love and who don’t find it at home, so they find it here,” Wade said. “We all have a responsibility to keep places like the Center open and thriving, because they do the work nobody else will.”

Fundraiser guests included Wade’s wife Gabrielle Union and daughter Zayn Wade (pictured above), Dylan Mulvaney, Karrueche Tran, Kathy Griffin, Raven-Symoné and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez.

Lafayette 148 unveils a capsule collection celebrating Martha Madigan’s legacy

American womenswear brand Lafayette 148 is celebrating Women’s History Month with a capsule collection that pays homage to the life and work of photographer and artist Martha Madigan (1950-2022).

Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Madigan’s experimental approach to photography and image-making saw her adopt a cameraless photographic process using cyanotype-coated paper and sunlight.

Madigan’s work can be found in museum collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Free Library of Philadelphia, Bowdoin College Museum of Art, James A. Michener Art Museum, Woodmere Art Museum, California Museum of Photography, Detroit Institute of the Arts and the Illinois State Museum, among others.

For Lafayette 148 creative director Emily Smith and her design team, Madigan’s work and philosophy surrounding nature was a key source of inspiration for the brand’s recent and forthcoming collections, in particular the exploration of natural art techniques such as eco-printing and cyanotype for applying botanical print motifs to garments.

The exclusive and limited edition Martha Madigan x Lafayette 148 Capsule Collection, produced in collaboration with the artist’s daughters, Claire Khodara and Grace Fuller Marroquin, consists of a pajama-inspired set and scarf crafted using the finest Italian silk twill and a kaftan in semi-sheer voile — all featuring one of Martha’s iconic, flora-infused prints.

“My own guiding light while creating this collection was the thought of introducing more women to Martha’s beautiful depictions of nature and, through wearing the pieces we’ve designed using her prints, adding their own presence and their own passage of time to what is already an important and inspiring artistic legacy,” Smith said.

A generous 20% of the capsule collection’s sales will be donated to the Martha Madigan Foundation, providing funds for art education.

Miaou opens a Parisian-inspired pop-up in West Hollywood

Cool-girl brand Miaou has opened an immersive pop-up experience in partnership with Starface, Adidas Originals and floral studio Specimen Designs.

In a nod to her style influences, founder Alexia Elkaim transformed a West Hollywood studio into a chic, Parisian-inspired haven reminiscent of her grandmother’s apartment in Paris’ Left Bank.

“In conceptualizing the space, my North Star has always been my late grandmother’s apartment, which remained untouched since the ’70s,” Elkaim said. “She mixed what was new world back then with mid-century nods. The vinyl and paprika velvet walls mixed in with traditional old world Haussmann moldings and French doors have all been recreated here.”

Inside, shoppers will discover Miaou’s bestselling pieces, including its beloved corsets and its Spring/Summer 2024 collection — along with footwear by Adidas, including the iconic SL 72 by Adidas Originals, and skincare products by Starface.

The pop-up is open until Sunday at 6111 W 5th St., Los Angeles, California 90048.
