Concept Fashion Week kicked off its second season at the Spring Arts Tower on Friday night with shows by Kucoon, Mike Vensel and martinMARTIN.

Interestingly, all three labels can be found at retail within blocks of the 5th and Spring show. martinMARTIN recently opened a store at 713 S. Los Angeles. Kucoon can be found inside Gather, at 630 S. Main, which will also soon be selling Vensel's designs.

The event kept the basics from its initial outing in March, holding runway shows in the building's former bank space on the ground floor and staging installations on both the ground floor and mezzanine. A u-shaped runway replaced the linear design from season one.

Concept continues through Sunday.
