Praised for "raising awareness of cultural diversity and creativity in the United States," Executive Producer, Arthur T. Chipman and the LA Fashion Week Team were recently recognized by the honorable Office of Michelle & Barack Obama for being innovators in the industry.

"LA is going through a cultural renaissance and we are excited to be a driving force behind its development into the premier hub for fashion, art, design and entertainment," says Arthur Chipman, the Executive Producer at LAFW. "Our city is surging with energy and artistic talent, and we cannot wait to unveil this season's offerings as we kick off our event this October."

LA Fashion Week aims to be a divergent crossroads of both distinct California & International labels & Artists. Georgian designer Lela Eloshi signifies elegance & confidence, making her U.S. debut. In contrast, Indonesian designer Rinda Salmun, known for her contemporary take on infusing elements from nature into her high-end looks, returns to LAFW for her second season. In addition, LA-based artists such as Bryan Yazzie known for his cutting edge use of fluorescent visuals, and pop art pioneer Rolland Berry will both be displaying their latest work. 

LAFW designers represent the ever-changing landscape of fashion as experimental artists like LA-based brands Radka SalcmannovaGeorge Styler,  and Amsterdam-based design duo MaryMe-JimmyPaul. A stunning array of international labels such as Asava GroupMilin, and Jeffry Tan will also be there to leave audiences in awe. Other contemporary participants include heavy-hitting global streetwear brand Issue ThailandSav Lavin, and B-YO.

The Official Fashion Week of Los Angeles as declared by Mayor Eric Garcetti, LAFW has established itself as LA's most esteemed fashion event, maintaining the support of the city of Los Angeles and California State Senator, Ben Allen. Featured SS18 season's partners include Kiss CosmeticsSwarovski, Living Proof Hair CarePassion RosesThe Royal Thai Consulate, and The Indonesian Consulate of Los Angeles.

Last season it was "Be the change you want to see in the world," and for Spring/Summer 2018 the message is, "The World needs more Sparkle." Stacey Bendet is conquering the world with positive vibes and good energy via fashion and her label Alice + Olivia. (And we LOVE it!) 

This season, accompanying all the 'sparkle,' A+O gave us ruffles, florals and fringe. Dresses, shorts, slacks and separates embraced a Bohemian chic factor in a way that only Stacey can deliver.

"As cutting edge as some of the pieces might be, Acra retained a cool ’60s-era classic feel in many looks, evoking a Jackie Kennedy—even Jackie Onassis—at times."
