Cars & Fashion LAFW Runway Event feat. Escada and Porsche Design

The glitterati of California’s City of Angels recently appeared in droves to witness the intersection of high-fashion and high-octane automobiles at Los Angeles Fashion Week’s Cars & Fashion runway event on Aug. 3: a prelude to the highly-anticipated, five-day LAFW 2019 event this coming fall.

Appropriately hosted at the Petersen Automotive Museum, Cars & Fashion featured presentations from two of the world’s most iconic luxury brands, Escada and Porche Design.

German-bred powerhouses Escada and Porche Designs audaciously emerged in the 1970s as innovators in apparel and industrial design. Escada’s 1978 debut collection, Escada & Sporty Elegance, helped to define the glamorous-yet-bold and wholly feminine aesthetic of the Escada woman through four decades. Just six years prior in 1972, Ferdinand Alexander Porche founded his namesake brand with an ethos that emphasized an uncompromised commitment to sleek, high-quality luxury goods with little regard to costs of production, and shifted Porche design focus beyond automobiles.

FAULT Magazine was on location at Cars & Fashion for a sneak peak of what sartorial devotees of both fashion houses can expect at LAFW SS19 this October: an event that will showcase the latest frocks by designers and brands from around the world.

How did Billie Piper get to where she is today; starring in Showtime’s high-budget  horror Penny Dreadful with top names in the industry? FAULT talks pop beginnings, wild teenage years and how acting was always the plan. It feels like only yesterday we were putting on our best pair of cargo trousers and singing ‘Because We Want To’ into our hair brushes but Billie Piper, the teenage pop princess, grew up into one of British television’s favourite actresses. With two platinum albums, 70 award wins and nominations and two children already in the bag by 32, is she a go-getting, force to be reckoned with? No, says Billie, she’s just restless.

FAULT Issue 21 features the star on our internal Style cover and we chat Penny Dreadful, upcoming movies and what it takes to go from teen POP-star to simply a popular culture icon – Only available in Issue 21!

What was the hardest thing about becoming famous at such a young age?

Never being able to just walk around normally. And when you’re a pop star you’re always on duty. You’re suddenly a role model even though you don’t start out with ambitions of being a role model and also you’re a fallible mess yourself. So trying to keep some resemblance of togetherness and good behavior was just shit as a teenager.

Mostly that you couldn’t walk anywhere without people wanting pictures and autographs and I found that so suffocating. We all did at that time. I went out with Rich from Five and we used to just sit in our flat for days, if we weren’t working, and never leave. It made you really reclusive. That’s the stuff I hated.

What have been some of your favourite acting projects?

I love them all to be honest. I’d say I’ve had some of my best times doing plays. I’ll always

have an enormous soft spot for Dr Who. That was a gift as a job and everyone was so nice which is rare. I loved Secret Diary because it was mad and loose and other-worldly.

You’re playing Lily Frankenstein in Penny Dreadful which is out at the moment. It’s a bit similar to Dr Who with its supernatural elements. Is that something you enjoy?

It’s funny that I get cast in things like that, it’s either prostitutes or time travelers!

Is that something you would advise your children on?

Yeah, I think I’d be quite firm about it. I don’t know that I’d let my children get involved in that world until they’re about 16 or 17. But who knows?! Because if they were really dedicated and really gun-ho and passionate about it then you just support that but if you’ve got a kid who just wants to be famous I would just totally rule that out.
