The first book to document Los Angeles's remarkable explosion onto the global fashion scene

New York, London, Milan, Paris ... and now, Los Angeles. Thanks to its unique blend of cultural influences and artistic industry, the City of Angels has earned its place alongside these traditional creative capitals and Fashion in LA goes beyond the red carpet to profile more than 40 designers instrumental to its success. It's a who's-who of talent, a true insider's guide to the men and women who have put twenty-first century Los Angeles on the world’s fashion map.
