Los Angeles has a Fashion Week? For real? Apparently the 3 day event starts this weekend and, though a bit less crazy than it's New York, London, and Paris counterparts; is something you should check out.
The three-day event at Sunset Gower Studios will host runway shows from local designers and contemporary lines, including A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz, Ani, Buffalo by David Bitton, Civil Society, Dolce Vita, Division E, Lacoste, Pure, Raw 7, Report Signature and Zanerobe. And while Los Angeles might not have the international fashion faire of New York or Milan, L.A. Fashion Weekend this season will be twice what it was, says Mikey Koffman, the event's founder and producer.
"We've doubled our size; we've doubled our seating capacity; we've doubled our nights; and we're doubling up on our designers. We've grown to into twice as big of an event just since last season (six months ago), so I'm really excited about that," says Koffman. [Via Huff Po]
