Fashion : Refocus Los Angeles is a fashion event experience produced twice a year by BOXeight during LA Fashion Week. We celebrate the art of fashion photography by inviting fashion designers to invoke their creative spirits and present their collections via an open photo shoot installation. This eye-catching avant-garde presentation of collections, set against artistic backdrops, makes for a one-of-a-kind backstage experience. Guests of the event get a behind the scenes look at designer collaborations with some of fashion’s most in-demand photographers, models, and stylists. Fashion : Refocus bridges the gap between fashion and art through photography. A season captured in a lens, the publication of this photo narrative gives each fashion week artists, and collection, visibility beyond the runway. The following images are the manifestation of the 2010 spring/summer and fall/winter visions.

BOXeight is an arts organization that provides a platform, which supports brands and artists, by producing content designed to showcase these collective talents internationally. Our mission is to lead an Artist Movement and house a destination where creative giants come to share in a common purpose of fusing art with commerce. Founder Peter Gurnz alongside partners Azzurro Mallin, Benjamin Cope, and Michael Utsinger have positioned BOXeight and its 12,000 sq ft. Art Gallery and Photo Studio as a cornerstone to the resurgence of the Downtown Los Angeles arts and fashion communities. Since 2007, BOXeight has steadily become the leading producer of Los Angeles Fashion Week Events. These efforts have been deemed by the headlines of local newspapers and fashion magazines as the only event to nurture and support emerging and established designer talent in Los Angeles during Fashion Week. Modeled after the Warhol factory, BOXeight is a fantastical folly into the land of make believe. This great studio in the slum is the set of a film waiting to be called to action. BOXeight is a place where magical things happen.
