As the lights came up on the fashion runway at the Petersen Automotive Museum Friday night, the audience was taken back in time to the high fashion of the 1940’s and a world where beautiful dark vixens reigned.  Vampires that is.  Beautiful sexy vampires that were dressed to kill.

The Mordida Collection by Adolfo Sanchez at Los Angeles Fashion Week SS20

The Mordida Collection by Adolfo Sanchez that appeared on the runway was created to recreate the look of the 1940’s and 1950’s fashion with the vampire twist.  Mordida is Spanish for the word “bitten.”

When LA fashion designer Adolfo Sanchez dresses a woman, he empowers her and demands that she be bold and daring. The haute couture that paraded down the runway is intended for the woman that isn’t afraid to be seen and wants to make a bold, beautiful statement.

That’s probably why Sanchez has been called upon by the likes of Fergie, Khloe Kardashian, Tyra Banks, Kylie Jenner, Brandi, Kesha, Kat Von D, Poppy, Niki Murphy, Lia Marie Johnson, Kat Graham and so many more to create their high society gowns.

Be sure to watch Adolfo on the CW and an exclusive Netflix series coming soon. 

Watch for our upcoming post on how Adolfo Sanchez took one of the dresses in the collection from concept to runway.  Also see our earlier article where Sanchez discusses how he got the concept for his new Mordida Collection.  To see more of Adolfo Sanchez’s fashion designs, visit his website.
