Fashion weeks in Los Angeles
Now a permanent feature on the international fashion week circuit, alongside London, Paris, Milan, New York and Tokyo, Fashion Week in Los Angeles is not limited to just one week, it spans a variety of dates during the month.
This year’s events will showcase award-winning designers from all over the world to media, buyers, industry elite and affluent clientele at several locations, including the Petersen Automotive Museum and The Majestic in downtown Los Angeles.
The fashion weeks offered in Los Angeles are unlike any other fashion event on the international calendar as a host of competing organizations stage runway shows and red-carpet events featuring a wide variety of “looks,” including edgy streetwear and custom contemporary.
Some events are exclusive invite-only affairs, and others have tickets available to the public. If you can navigate the maze of competing shows, you can experience some of the most exciting and innovative fashion now produced in the country.
