On Thursday, September 2nd, 360 Magazine attended the Ellaè Lisquè’s fashion show in Los Angeles for the debut of their “Birthday Collection.” Designer Maxie J. chose a desert inspired theme for the models to walk through wearing her latest designs. The melanated event was filled with stars such as Christian Combs, Sevyn Streeter (who performed), Chris Brown, Slick Woods, Amber Riley, Clermont Twins (who opened the show), and many more to celebrate the Black designer and her latest collection.
While many fashion enthusiasts continue to have conversations about inclusion in the fashion industry, the Los Angeles native took matters into her own hands and built a table of her own. With uncompromising ambition & talent, Maxie J. first gave birth to her love child Ellaè Lisquè in 2014-a line intentionally created to make women feel sexy, bossy and sophisticated.
The fashion show took place at LA’s premier nightclub, Exchange LA, with decor by Wright Productions. 360 degree cameras were setup around the event for guests to shoot interactive videos in their outfits and share to their social media platforms. The “Birthday Collection” was elegant and chic for women of all sizes and ethnicities.

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.

Not long ago, model Draya Michele teamed up with Mann for her 360 Magazine cover. “You pushed for me. When they said I couldn’t be a fashion girl, you said I could,” asserts Draya (on a recent Instagram post). It’s evident that Mann made a sincere effort to see both his clients and loved ones reach their personal best.
“From the moment I first laid eyes on you I fell in love. One of the most captivating spirits I’ve ever met. Our journey together wasn’t perfect but it was worth it. I am in disbelief and pain writing this. Rest in Paradise my friend, I love you!,” stated Lil Mama.
Recently, a GoFundMe page was created to assist Mann’s family with costly funeral arrangements.
