L.A. designers worth a second look
The month-long marathon of events known as L.A. fashion week has commenced, but off the runway, several designers have been hard at work building promising collections and clothing brands, all based in L.A.
The collections range from the slouchy and modern to the sweet and retro, but each manages to capture the ease and insouciance that seeps into everything women in Southern California wear.
Check out my story in this Sunday’s Image section, where lines including Theonne, Charles Henry, Amber Sakai and Brochu Walker are profiled.
