los angeles fashion week: trovata’s accidental cocktail party


“New York is about the clothes, Los Angeles is about our friends,” said Trovata’s John Whitledge last night at the L.A. hotspot the Palihouse, where the brand was celebrating its Spring ’09 collection with a troop of West Coast devotees. “It was supposed to be a sit-down dinner but we ended up inviting too many people, so we decided to serve hors d’oeuvres at the last minute.” Not that any of the guests seemed to mind. “Sit-down dinners are boring, anyway,” said Rihanna stylist Lysa Cooper. Whitledge, for his part, said he “didn’t lift a finger organizing this event. The most important thing I’ve learned over the past three years is that you’re only as good as the team you work with. And my team is incredible.”
