In the great ‘L.A. versus New York’ debate, our city dominates in pretty much every category—year-round sunny weather, an abundance of quality Mexican food and the option to wear cutoff shorts in any season. But where Los Angeles has continued to fall short is its very own fashion week.
Dismissed from Paris to Milan, L.A. Fashion Week has never garnered the respect, attention or attendance of its New York counterpart. But Los Angeles is bursting with creative entrepreneurs and independent spirits, so why does Los Angeles Fashion Week continue to fall flat?
Some say it’s an overall lack of organization and marketing. If you do a Google news search for Los Angeles Fashion Week, you’ll mostly find articles about New York, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks instead. Even Christian Fashion Week—yes, that’s a thing—shows up more in the search results.
