London Fashion Week is not the only fashion week wanting a revival. LA continues to fight for its position as a fashion capital.
It's been a rocky couple of years for them. If Smashbox, Mercedes Benz and IMG pulling out as official sponsors isn't bad enough, several designers don't actually want to show there anymore. Let's just say that the Pussycat Dolls and Lauren Conrad's clothing line are the biggest shows on the show schedule. Enough said.
Fashion insiders have been less than kind about the city. As The Cut said, 'It hardly pays for them [designers] if no one important is there (and as great as it is to have Tori Spelling or P. Diddy on the front row, they won't place large wholesale orders or put the clothes in Vogue'. Rick Owens also lashed out at the city saying, "Get off your ass and go to Europe... [W]hy do they have to be a fashion capital? They're the movie capital of the world and they've always been that, can't they just be satisfied with that?"
Do you think LA Fashion Week can follow in the footsteps of London Fashion Week this season and reinvent themselves?
