"We are very proud to be part of the CMC," said owner, Cyril Bonnan. "We wanted to be in the heart of the LA Fashion District, and the CMC has a rich history of being associated with successful brands."
Additionally, Skylton, along with Splash PR Agency, will be hosting a Runway Show on Monday, August 4 in the Main Lobby of the CMC. Open to registered buyers and industry guests, cocktails and food will begin at 5pm. The show will feature a variety of denim looks from the French brand, in addition to a live band, a raffle drawing, and gift bag giveaways.
Running concurrently with LA Fashion Market will be Temporaries and an abbreviated edition of TRANSIT LA Shoe Show, both held in the CMC's Fashion Theater, Monday and Tuesday, 10am-5pm, and Wednesday from 10am-4pm. A sampling of exhibitors include A.Marie Jewelry, Blowfish Malibu, Latigo, Green Tree Jewelry, Nomad Footwear, Yellow Box and others.
TRANSIT exhibitor, Pete Julienne of Nomad Footwear, expresses the importance of showing at the traditionally scaled-down, August Edition of TRANSIT. "The last August Show turned out very well for us," says Julienne. "The smaller number of vendors gives us an advantage and better opportunity to meet with the regular buyers at the Show."
SELECT Contemporary Tradeshow & TRANSIT Shoe Show will not take place during the August Market but will return to LA Fashion Market on Oct 13-15, 2013 for the Spring 2015 season.
