This Week's Top Los Angeles Fashion Events

The Los Angeles fashion calendar is completely unique, and full of amazing brands to discover. Read more >

The fashion scene in Los Angeles is unlike any other major fashion city, and the city's fashion calendar is no exception. LA has an amazing collective of upcoming labels in its DTLA Garment District - and a variety of really cool labels operating across Melrose, Santa Monica and Venice - which makes it one of the best places in the world to explore and discover independent brands.

We all know that nobody walks in LA, and that makes the scene a lot more spread out than cities like London or New York, where the fashion scene is centered in one particular area. In Los Angeles, while DTLA does have a rich calendar or events, expect to travel to get to many of the coolest fashion events - especially with festival-ready and beachwear brands, which can often be found in places like Costa Mesa, Venice and Commerce.

The sample sales calendar in LA runs all year round, but is most commonly focussed on end of season periods - from April to June and from October to December. There are some incredible bargains to be had at some of the amazing Garment District fashion studios such as the New Mart or the California Market Centre, which will often open their doors once every month or once every two months for a sample sale, where you can explore the studios of the labels who operate there and buy clothes very cheaply.

If you're a vintage lover, look out for the regular Artists & Fleas vintage market, which runs alternatively in Venice and in LA. This popular market features a wide collection of merchants from all across the state, and features a great collection of clothing, jewelry, homeware and more.

Finally, although LA doesn't have quite the heft of fashion exhibitions as a city like New York, keep an eye out for exhibitions at places like LACMA, where you'll find world-class shows that are absolute must-sees when they're on!
