Designers Lisa Guajardo and Jessica Moss, cofounders of Los Angeles-based fashion label Leyendecker, initially bonded over their shared love of longhaired Chihuahuas. Guajardo was walking her tiny pooch one day when Moss ? a fellow owner of the breed ? pulled her car over to chat about canines. It turned out that an affinity for pocket-sized dogs wasn't all the pair had in common; both were trained in apparel construction ? Moss in costume design and Guajardo in fashion design.

Anthropologie, the retailer known for its twee and often vintage-inspired fashions and home goods, opened its first BHLDN "shop within a shop" store in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. The sister label, pronounced “beholden,” launched as an online bridal collection in 2011 and has since expanded to two standalone brick-and-mortar stores in Chicago and Houston. But the Beverly Drive location, taking up 1,000 square feet on the mezzanine level of the existing 10,000-square-feet Anthropologie store, represents the first time both brands have coexisted in the same space.

What was on the runway in the two-plus weeks of spring 2014 fashion shows in Los Angeles was as varied as the venues themselves, which ranged from the entertainment complex L.A. Live downtown to the Grove, some seven miles to the west. One of the standout events was the Los Angeles Fashion Council's two days of runway shows held for the first time at the Grove. Staged in the center of the outdoor mall's park area, where the Christmas tree sits each holiday season, the event showcased eight designers.

"I seem to approach each collection as if I were creating a perfume, blending basic, well-loved style elements with 'top notes' of our own," says designer Adolfo in the show notes for his spring collection, presented at the St. Regis Hotel here this week. "The result is meant to please and intrigue the women who wear our clothes. These women reject an overpowering fad as they do an overpowering scent. They loathe the term 'high style' as much as I do."

Already modeled by dozens of celebs on the red carpet in the last few months, Raf Simons' much-ballyhooed Dior spring ready-to-wear collection has finally landed in stores, including Maxfield, where it has taken over the side gallery space for the next two weeks. A party was held Wednesday night to celebrate. And though the designer of the hour (year?) wasn't there, lots of L.A.'s social butterflies were, including hosts Quinn Ezralow, Julia Sorkin and Kelly Styne, as well as Liberty Ross, Crystal Lourd and Leandra Medine, all dressed in Dior, of course.

Your Spring Fashion Issue showcases Bryce Dallas Howard in a $26,665 evening gown and another dress priced at $12,000 ("The Most Fair," Feb. 26). This bothers me as a fashion- and budget-conscious consumer. I doubt that the majority of your readers can afford dresses in this price range, and I venture that most of them would choose not to spend that much on clothing even if they could. Moreover, I am offended as a citizen of the world. I sponsor an African child's educational, living and health needs for $288 per year.

My husband and I couldn't agree more with Tom Moore ("Is Freestyle Cruising a Washout?," Letters, Feb. 10). However, not all cruise companies are doing away with the traditional dining experience. We too will not sail with any company that only features freestyle. Who wants to dine in an elegant restaurant where everyone dresses as if they have been doing yard work all day?

NEW YORK -- Tory Burch chose the second-floor atrium of Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center as the backdrop for her spring-summer 2013 runway collection which showed on Sept. 11 during New York Fashion Week, with floor-to-ceiling windows giving the audience the same bright, sun-drenched feel as the clothes that came down the catwalk. The inspiration: “American prep remix. We were thinking about a stylish magpie who picks up special pieces while traveling around the world and always mixes them with classic sporstwear.” Photos: NYFW Week celebrity sightings The look: Yellow wheat patterns printed on silk faille dresses, patchwork jackets and shorts, honeycomb eyelet dresses and dresses covered in a floral print of the daisy's kissing cousin, the black-eyed Susan.
