After Cross-Country Trek, Cynthia Rowley Truck is finally here for LA's Fashion's Night Out

By Laura Medina

Yes, yes, finally...the Cynthia Rowley "Boutique on Wheels" has finally rolled into the City of Angels, made a couple of pit stops in Santa Monica and West Hollywood.

Now, it is part of Los Angeles' Fashion's Night Out highlight, the kind folks at the Mayor's Office are honored to host the truck on the city's shining night in fashion.

The truck will visit historicial Downtown Los Angeles, the birthplace of the city and visit the city's biggest secret-the huge Garment District, home to the city's 5,000 mainstream brands from Guess? Jeans, Bebe, and BCBG to name a few.

The women of the Mayor's office has assured this scriber that the truck is in good hands while here.

For my LA fashionistas, the truck will be parked right outside your loft or apartment. Might as well as say "hi."

When you do drop by for a visit, these are what you're going to see...

Feather collared tee & feather party dress

Ms. Rowley's current Fall 2010 collection, the "Dark side of Beauty."

She, too, fell under the spell of Lady Gaga and used theaterical feathers, dipped in ombre, against strips of grosgrain ribbon in inky purple, navy, and of course, black.

If Ms. Rowley was influenced by Lady Gaga's "Little Monsters," her monsters are more like Seasame Street's Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and Elmo.

All fluffy. All furry. All cuddly yet so darn hip.

Feather & Silk Tuft Dress
Check out this mixed-media dress tufted with black feathers and black lace intersparsed with navy silk ruffles.
It's Lady Gaga gone ladylike. Her idea of a tea dress.

With Ms. Rowley's exploration of the "dark side," then mixing it in with her signature preppy cocktail dresses and ensembles, she made this collection Lower East Side hip or rocking Sunset Boulevard. Think of this as "Punk Prep"2.0.

Since her truck will be parked in Los Angeles' artsy neighborhood on Friday's Fashion's Night Out, take advantage of the opportunity and get some rocking outfits.

Get them while they're hot.
