Will Los Angeles Ever Have a Fashion Week?!
As much as we love love love New York Fashion Week, we would love to have one of our own on the West Coast even more. Unfortunately, according to the LA Times, that won’t be happening anytime soon…
Fashion Los Angeles, the group that has spent the last two years planning the week in hope of it’s revival has decided on postponing the event for 2012 instead of next month (what would have been the week of February 1st-7th). The group’s co-founder and executive Michael Venedicto said,”We’re postponing until 2012 to work on building up sponsorship and fashion-presentation-ready designers”. The group plans on continuing to acquire more sponsorships while also creating a community project with major beneficial outcomes from a week of fashion solely in Los Angeles. The postponement of the event means that only one local fashion group will be putting on runway shows. The Los Angeles Fashion Week at Sunset Gower Studios is set to showcase it’s fall and winter 2011 collections in the middle of March.
I guess we will just have to hope for an actual Los Angeles Fashion week next year, but as always, only time (and money) will tell.
