Check out a sneak peek at the fall '08 collection from LA-based label Rojas, shot at the Rojas boutique at Melrose and Fuller. You have to get through a bit of rambling by designers Freddie Rojas and Alejandra Hernandezon (who he hired as an intern in 2003), but you do find out—right on trend—the season is very '80s inspired (Debbie Harry, Pat Benatar, etc.), featuring lots of black, studs and texture. Best quotage from Hernandezon: "We're really scattered. I think he's really organized, and he thinks I'm really organized, but we're really both a mess." Best Rojas quotage, describing the Rojas girl: "She's the night of the party."
