Last week I attended the ground breaking ceremony for the future site of Fashion Los Angeles. Fashion Los Angeles aims to bring back a sophisticated and successful LA Fashion week
Fashion LA will take over the rooftop of a parking structure across the street from the majestic Disney Concert Hall. The lot will be built out into several structures including 3 runway theaters, several exhibit halls and staging for design displays.
I am excited to see the organization continue to gain momentum as Los Angeles is continually over looked and scoffed at by other fashion cities even though LA is the 5th largest fashion city worldwide. LA is $32 billion fashion industry with 6,800+ fashion business jobs and 98,00 fashion jobs.

Fashion Los Angeles aims to take fashion presentation beyond the runway, into global awareness, and ultimately the marketplace through a mix of original content. Fashion Los Angeles has formed a strong partnership with the Los Angeles fashion bloggers via Two Point Oh! LA, a blogging community created and lead by Kelsi Smith of a Dedicated Follower of Fashion. I am a member of this community and will keep you up to date on all of the amazing events and programs!
