A Quick Chat with Fashion Designer Dena Burton

Written by

Herna D DrivenByDesign 6aAmidst the craziness at one of the first venues Driven By Design LA  during LA Fashion Week  I had a few minutes to ask LA based fashion designer Dena Burton a few questions about her collection this season before her presentation of her spring/summer 2014 collection.


S805  What is your inspiration for this collection?

DB     I felt inspired by the 1970's, you will see bell bottoms, cat pants and jumpsuits this season. The thought behind it was a powerful woman who works hard & plays hard, I was envisioning  a woman who does a lot of international traveling doing the summer season. I want her to take her pieces and be able to interchange them and also be classy & elegant, to have a lot of classics in her wardrobe.

S805  Which the classics never goes out of style.

DB     Exactly

S805  What is your impression of LA Fashion Week how do you compare it differences?

DB     LA fashion week is growing, I think it is a great opportunity right now to get in.  Los Angeles has been doing fashion week for a little while now, we haven't reach New York status yet. I think it is growing and I am glad to be a part of it. I think there is a lot of opportunity and potential in LA, considering we have Hollywood here, there are so many different things that we could do, just because of all the resource we have here.

 In 2009, she decided to start Society 805 after noticing that there were really no decent online publications that feature the lifestyles and happenings of her newly adopted area.  As a recent transplant trying to find what activities to get into was a daunting task, the few publications that did have events or articles were done very poorly and the layouts were horrendous.  That is when she came up with the concept and thanks to her girlfriend Tarra Jack who helped come up with the name after an afternoon of  sipping cocktails Society 805 was started.
 In her spare time, Tatiana enjoys spending time with her family & friends. She enjoys entertaining at her home, dancing, traveling and singing karaoke whenever she gets a chance. In her quiet moments she enjoys cuddling with her dog and watching a good movie on TCM or watching anime, a passion she picked up in her twenties.
