Fashion Los Angeles Groundbreaking

Last Wednesday, the 15th, marked the official groundbreaking for Fashion Los Angeles! Opening February 1-7, 2011, Fashion Los Angeles aims to serve as the new global platform for fashion in the L.A. area, unifying designers, developers, and media under one roof. They will represent more than 65 designers and 10,000 professionals in a great downtown location (right next to the Walt Disney hall!) that contains everything someone working in fashion could need, from marketing to runway shows.

I'm really excited for what they're doing because I think that it will help make fashion in L.A. more organized and community-driven. Hearing about all their plans and goals makes me feel optimistic for the L.A. fashion industry!

Here are some photos from the event:

Outfit: Black and white silk gingham dress (Betsey Johnson), black studded crossbody bag (won from Tweetmybag), black t-strap mary jane heels (Payless), silver bow necklace (Tiffany; gift from my sister)

(A HUGE thanks to Natalie's boyfriend, Michael Solomon, for taking this and a few of the following photos for us! I was rushing to get there after work and didn't have time to take my usual outfit pics)
