LA designer Juan Carlos Obando might have just showed his spring '09 collection at NY Fashion Week, but our CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalist hasn't left us yet. We learn he's opening up an atelier in Koreatown in the same complex as airbrush makeup experts Temptu (they did the amazing makeup for Jared Gold's runway show last season), which apparently already has 40% occupancy. His lease begins November 1. We definitely miss JC Obando this LA Fashion Week. [RackedWire]
