Whitley Kros designers Marissa Ribisi and Sophia Coloma went digital for Fall. At their Sunday night fashion week slot, the L.A. designers welcomed guests like Cat Power’s Chan Marshall, Devendra Banhart, and Giovanni Ribisi to studio-slash-party hot spot Miauhaus to check out their ’09 offerings via installation and video presentation. “This multimedia stuff is so them, and you get to talk here,” hostess Erika Christensen, in a turquoise Whitley Kros dress, said of the designers and their new venue. “You do not get to talk at a fashion show.” Off-the-shoulder tops, bright prints, belted shirtdresses, and schoolgirl blazers (the Whitley Kros girl has been backpacking through Eastern Europe) along with notes, photos, and travel accessories adorned the walls. “She’s like a nomad and wanderer, and it feels like you’re walking into her wardrobe or hotel room,” Marissa—whose husband, Beck, created the play list for the evening—said of the decor. “This was what we always wanted to do, and it sort of feels like the art world or something.”
