Los Angeles Fashion Week is anchored by the California Market Center (CMC)
located in Downtown Los Angeles, one of the largest fashion marts in the
world with 100s of showrooms featuring contemporary fashions. Each year
CMC hosts the Los Angeles Fashion Market tradeshow for Fall and Spring seasons.
Los Angeles Fashion Week is organized around the events of LA Fashion Market
creating a synergy between established fashion brands and showrooms and
the fashion designer shows that highlight emerging talents.
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (MBFW) at Smashbox Studios was the main event
for Los Angeles Fashion Week for many years with a full schedule of Los
Angeles Collections Shows including designers like Petro Zillia, Rock &
Republic, Maggie Barry, Corey Lynn Calter, Whitley Kros, and many more.
The MBFW core schedule of shows formed a strong basis for the organization
of Los Angeles Fashion Week, culminating in the Spring 2010 incarnation
titled Downtown Los Angeles Fashion Week (DLAFW). DLAFW is being held at
the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Geffen Contemporary in October 2009.
The DLAFW Show Schedule includes designers Louis Verdad, Yotam Solomon,
Oliver Tolentino, and more. Also in October 2009 Gen Art and Rock Fashion
Week will hold their LA Fashion Week shows at Paramount Studios.
