Last Wednesday the California Mart was graced with Los Angeles Mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa’s presence as he started LA Fashion Week on a good note with his 10 am press conference in the lobby. After meeting and shaking Mayor Villaraigosa’s hand he proceeded to speak about the major influences Los Angeles’s $28 billion dollar industry has on the fashion world and in specific in spurring the economy. During LA Fashion Week alone some $50 million dollars are spent at local hotels, restaurants, and transportation making it one of the most prominent design capitals in the world according to Apparel News.
Among those in attendance of the conference was ever popular designer Louis Verdad (see picture below) whose show of remarkable silhouettes was shown just last night, Tuesday, October 13th, in LA.
Come check out Celebrity Pink during fashion week at the Fashion Mingashow this Friday at BLVD 3.
Hope to see you there.
