Past and present collide this fall when mod, Mid-Century-inspired fashions are juxtaposed by the ultra-modern steel and glass architecture by Wendell Burnette for Christopher’s at the Wrigley Mansion.
When we first saw the amazing architecture by Wendell Burnette for Christopher’s, we felt a Mid-Century modern LA vibe. When Chef Christopher Gross said the lines of his new restaurant felt like an iconic photograph, ‘A Shot in the Dark,’ by Julius Shulman of one of the most iconic homes in Los Angeles, the Stahl House designed by Pierre Koenig, our ICONIC eyes and ears were piqued.
“We simple couldn’t resist today’s newest iconic location for our fall fashion shoot,” says Renee Dee, ICONIC LIFE publisher. Thank you to our three fashion designer friends Kevan Hall, Sylvia Tcherassi and Zang Toi who interpreted our vision with their stunning designs, inspiring us on what to wear this season.

Past and present collide this fall when mod, Mid-Century-inspired fashions are juxtaposed by the ultra-modern steel and glass architecture.
We were honored to have fashions flown in from three favorite design icons for this ICONIC LIFE fashion shoot.
In 1983, this designer to the stars founded Kevan Hall Couture, selling to luxury retailers including Bergdorf Goodman. In 1997, Hall was asked to reinvigorate Halston—the label famous for dressing Jacqueline Kennedy, Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor, among other notables—as the Design and Creative Director from Fall 1998 to Spring 2000. In 2002, he launched his own signature ready-to-wear line, Kevan Hall Collection, worn by Salma Hayek, Charlize Theron, Katherine Heigl and Michelle Obama. His fall collection is inspired by the stars and galaxy around us.
Trailblazer and trendsetter, Silvia Tcherassi has been awarded one of France’s highest honors–the Officier de L’Ordre Arts et Lettres, a distinction bestowed on leaders of the international arts community. The Columbia-born pioneer of the Latin flair—according to WWD—began her career as an interior designer, but the search for new artistic expressions led her into fashion. Her creations have been presented during Paris and Milano fashion weeks, invited as a special guest by the organizers. Her collections are available worldwide through her 15 namesake stores.
From humble beginnings to renowned international fashion designer, Zang Toi
has dressed celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor, Eva Longoria, Farrah Fawcett, Melinda Gates and even royalty, and this year celebrates 32 years of his brand. Zang’s 2021 collection is inspired by his love for his favorite city, Paris. Zang started his own collection in 1989, and his first collection was selected by Anna Wintour to appear in Vogue, and he was the first Asian American designer she championed.
