King Design at LA Fashion Week

by Tara McDonough

Now a permanent feature on the international fashion week circuit, LA Fashion Week held their three-night event at the Petersen Automotive Museum this past weekend, March 22 through March 24. On the third and final night of LA Fashion Week, the events began with the unveiling of King Designs Fall/Winter Collection by female designer Jessica King.

Billie Eilish’s “Bury A Friend” vibrated through the speakers as the first two models made their way down the runway in both black and green versions of King’s Python One Shoulder Swimsuit.

The collection is full of waterproof holographic and reflective prints, python reminiscent patterns, hand dyed bralettes, leather bottoms, velvet and chains. The line combines streetwear, swimwear and sportswear in a unique and enthralling way. The body types of each model varied, reflecting the clothing line’s range of sizes from X-small to X-large and the designers inclusive views on fashion. No two models looked alike, bringing a fresh air of diversity to the runway.

Jessica King herself graciously received her applause at the end of the show in an all black ensemble featuring a one shoulder top from the Fall/Winter collection and chainwork hanging from her belted ankle-length skirt.

Petersen Automotive Museum

Everyone else uses transporters, but not Petersen founding chairman Bruce Meyer. Watch as Bruce and friends take to the streets of Beverly Hills to personally deliver some of his winningest cars to the Petersen Automotive Museum ahead of the opening of “Winning Numbers: The First, The Fastest, The Famous.”

On Saturday, February 23, 2019, the Petersen Automotive Museum opened its newest exhibit featuring 10 groundbreaking race cars, each with a unique story of triumph and victory. Titled “Winning Numbers: The First, The Fastest, The Famous,” the exhibit is comprised of Le Mans winners, land speed record setters, dragsters and road racers from the personal garage of Petersen Founding Chairman Bruce Meyer.

Key vehicles on display include the winningest Ferrari road racer of all time, the 1957 Ferrari 625/250 Testa Rossa, which claimed first prize in more than half of the 50 competitions in which it was raced; the first production 1962 Shelby Cobra, CSX2001; the 1962 Greer Black Prudhomme, which was raced by drag racing legend Don Prudhomme who won 237 of the 241 races in which he piloted the car; the renowned 1952 So-Cal Speed Shop Belly Tank Racer, which was fashioned from a P-38 Lightning fighter belly tank from World War II by hot rod racing icon Alex Xydias; the 1979 Kremer Porsche 935 K3 that took first place overall at Le Mans; and the 1929 Ford “747” Bonneville Racer that Meyer ran 204 mph at Bonneville Salt Flats.

“Affectionately called ‘the car guy’s car guy,’ Bruce Meyer epitomizes true automotive passion,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “The charisma with which Bruce shares his passion is what sets him apart. ‘Winning Numbers’ reflects his discerning tastes as a collector and motorsports enthusiast, and we’re proud to share his fervor for the hobby with the community.”

The exhibit’s public opening was preceded by an evening reception and media preview on February 22, 2019. Guests of the exclusive event were treated to passed appetizers by the Petersen’s exclusive catering partner Drago, a full cocktail bar and a Fireside Chat discussion between Meyer and Karges.

“Winning Numbers” will run through January 19, 2020. For more information about the Petersen Automotive Museum exhibits, visit www.Petersen.org.

How Online Coaching Helps Busy People Get Fit

How Online Coaching Helps Busy People Get Fit

People are busier today than ever before, and for many people that tends to keep them from getting the exercise that they need. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, less than 5% of the adults in the country engage in physical activity for at least 30 minutes per day. What’s more, they report that 80% of adults do not meet the guidelines for both aerobic and strength-training activities each week. One of the most common reasons people cite for not getting enough exercise is that they don’t have the time, but online coaching is changing all that.

“I’ve been offering online coaching since 2009, and I’ve seen how it’s helped so many people find the time to get fit,” explains Coach Sarah Walls, personal trainer and owner of SAPT Strength & Performance Training, Inc., who is also the strength and conditioning coach for the WNBA’s Washington Mystics. “There are a lot of benefits to opting for online coaching for those who may be too busy for in-person meetings or who have geographic constraints.”

Online coaching puts the power of having a trainer right in the comfort of your own home. By logging online with a computer or tablet, the coaching session is right there at the person’s fingertips. They still get the same powerful information they would in person, but the delivery format works better for many people. Online coaching gives people a tool that they can use when it’s convenient for them, which will help them stay on track, hold themselves accountable, and work toward reaching individual fitness goals.

Many people spend their day commuting back and forth to work and spending long hours in the office. The last thing they can imagine doing is trying to squeeze in an additional drive to go work out somewhere. Online coaching has become a popular option for those who are busy, but also for those who are looking to have their workout fit their own list of what they want out of a workout routine. Some of the ways that online coaching is helping busy people get fit include:

  • Saving time. In the time that many people will take to drive back and forth to go work out, they could complete an in-home or in-office workout. Using your own body weight, there are many exercises that can be done right in the living room in order to get fit.
  • Motivation. Online coaching provides people with the motivation when and where they may need it. Working with a personal trainer is a great way be get motivated, as well as get the expert advice that people need to achieve their fitness goals.
  • Privacy. There are many people who would like to work out with a personal fitness coach, but don’t want to do it in front of others. They may be embarrassed or feel they don’t measure up. Online coaching provides them with a whole new level of privacy.
  • Flexibility. Online coaching allows people to work out at the hour that is convenient for them, as well as in the geographic location that works for them. Whether they are on vacation, in the office, or at home, they can fit in a coaching session when it works for them.

“Those who try online coaching tend to love it,” added Coach Walls. “They get the same great information, but it fits their life better, so they are more able to stick with it. Getting fit is easier when you have the tools that can help you get there, and that’s exactly what online coaching aims to do.”
