Raise your sake glass! Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace recently joined forces with Las Vegan-turned LA local-turned designer Jonathan Bash for two fashionable undertakings. As the essence of the Nobu brand is in sync with Bash’s modern designs, the perfect pairing first intertwined when Bash shot his spring/summer 2014 lookbook inside the jaw-dropping Nobu Penthouse, debuting the full collection there.

It was just in time for LA Fashion Weekend, held last week on Oct. 18-20 at Sunset Gower Studios. With front-and-center placement, Nobu was the 2013 Title Sponsor and had its own accompanying lounge branded and designed to give top fashion industry insiders an immersive experience into the posh world of Nobu. (Runways, poppin’ bottles, and a crowd so beautiful it hurts? Check.)

In addition to his own 15-piece line, Bash was also commissioned to craft four stunning “Nobu Couture” pieces to showcase the stylish brand through the medium of fashion. Lights, camera, glamour!

Does each dress have a theme?
We took inspiration from the Nobu Hotel theme of East-meets-West. Since the hotel has in its DNA a “Japanese and Asian tradition,” it led us to draw and incorporate elements to our designs that were influenced by the geisha traditional costume. We wanted to blend our design aesthetic with Japanese elements, keeping in mind the beautiful design of the Nobu Hotel. Our goal was to create beautiful living work of arts that reflected Japanese nature [and] culture of luxury, elegance, sophistication, beauty, and harmony that could also be found in the Nobu Hotel.

What fabrics and colors are the inspirations behind the designs?
To further enhance the aesthetic of our designs, we decide to utilize silk fabrics in earth tones drawn from the Nobu Hotel color scheme.

There were some amazing headpieces.
For the headpieces, we decide to take a direct inspiration from the geishas—to incorporate over-the-top headpieces with Japanese elements that complement and finished off the overall look of the Couture garments. The headpieces consist of Japanese fans, parasol, orchids and one Manzanita branches.
