In the habit of showing their prefall and cruise collections outside of the normal fashion week staples, designers are constantly popping up in unexpected places. For her fall 2016 show, Stella McCartney landed in Los Angeles, and produced a presentation full of celebrities and, what else, music. The show took over Amoeba Records on Sunset Boulevard, and was filled with models parusing the record bins, celebrities decked out in McCartney's whimsical aesthetic and a surprise performance from Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys. What else would you expect from rock royalty?

Not to Basic Black
A timeless staple, the black dresses this season were anything but basic. From Roman-inspired detailing to intricate lace, the ladies in black showed you can take on a classic color and still make it chic.

Just about every brand has their own Instagram page dedicated to cultivating a following for its wares. Whether it's posting fashion show snap shots, newly shot campaign images or special-edition releases, the brands keep the public up-to-date on their next big offering.
But behind every great line is a great designer, and some of those creatives are offering a candid glimpse into their world via the photo publishing site. Here four of our favorite designers on Instagram, and why you should follow them now.
A relative newbie to Instagram, the ultra-glamorous Donatella Versace came out swinging posing with social media powerhouse/ it model Gigi Hadid in a behind the scenes snap while shooting the Versace ad campaign. And she hasn't stopped giving us a look into all things Versace from her custimized Gucci platforms from Alessandro Michele to throwback photos of her sitting back while J. Lo dances on a table. It's as over-the-top as you would expect it to be.
Nicholas Ghesquiere of Louis Vuitton
While not the type to overly seek publicity, Nicholas Ghesquiere allows his photos to speak for themselves with a mix of fashion-focused images along with glimpses of the tropical vacations and international landscapes that keep the man behind such a large brand on the go. He even debuted his Spring 2016 women's ad campaign via Instagram, which featured the fashion risk taker Jaden Smith.
Famous for his love of the good life, Valentino Garavani shares his luxe world via Instagram. Photos of the designer yachting on the Mediterranean with Olivia Palermo and Anne Hathaway vie for screenspace with vintage ad campaigns, snapshots from holidays in Gstaad and, of course, his beloved pack of pugs.
Alessandro Michele of Gucci
As with his rise to prominence at Gucci, Alessandro Michele keeps a low profile on social media. But once you discover his ecclectic page filled with alternating whimsical photos of classic art, his Boston terrier and the occasional dreamy landscape you'll follow instantly. It's a look inside his much heralded bohemian aesthetic breathing life into the Gucci universe.
While the women in music are no strangers to pushing fashion boundaries, it’s Harry Styles that had everyone talking at the American Music Awards red carpet in Los Angeles Sunday. The One Direction band member has a taste for high-fashion, and when he’s on the red carpet sets himself apart with outside-the-box sartorial choices. Case in point, the Gucci spring summer 2016 suit he donned for the AMAs. The cotton crepe herbarium printed suit set the boybander apart in a sea of dark colors, and offered further proof he’s a style star to be reckoned with.
