Thousands of Holiday/Resort 2014 collections will be available to buyers during Los Angeles Fashion Market, Monday - Thursday, August 4 - 7, 2014, hosted at the California Market Center (CMC), with Sunday, August 3rd, open for Preview. Resources can be found throughout hundreds of CMC showrooms, Fashion Market Temporaries and the LA Kids Market.

In addition to Holiday/Resort 14 and Immediates, buyers will see an abundance of European collections housed at the CMC that will debut Spring 15 this Market. Creative Concepts, a showroom that solely reps European lines, will be debuting many Spring 15 collections from brands including Art On Fashion, Beate Heymann, Rodika Zanian, INDIES, Not Shy, and more. "August is a good Market for us because buyers attending know that our Spring European collections break," says Peter Jacobsen of Creative Concepts. "LA Fashion Market is the first show in the US where many of our lines debut their new collections."

Other new resources include Adam Jacobs, Orion At'eed, Alice's Pig, Danity, Playful Promises, Whistle and Wolf, Beautiful Stories, Nymfete, Krazy Larry, Me, Stilleto, Custo Barcelona, Wild Rose Apparel , Skylton Paris, W5 Concepts/Klist, Kaii, Inoah, Adore, Art on Fashion, London Minori, Chanour, Stella Nemiro, and many more including new showroom, Skylton Paris, a luxury denim brand, debuting at this LA Fashion Market.

"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.

Holiday/Resort 2014 Los Angeles Fashion Market takes place Monday-Thursday, August 4-7, 2014 at the California Market Center. Show hours are 9:00am- 6:00pm daily, with Sunday open for Preview. Spring 15 LA Fashion Market will take place Sunday - Wednesday, October 12-15, 2014.

The date is set. The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.  In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.  The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.   In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.  By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout. The plan is se

Too Many Fashion Blogs

Is it possible that the world currently has too many fashion blogs? Obviously I understand that fashion is the most interesting subject matter in the universe, but why does everyone wish to blog about it. Although I have not yet completed an official count, I estimate approximately six zillion may be in existence. Here are a few reasons that may possibly contribute to the over population of style relevant blogs: Fashion blogs can make bloggers money (advertising, affiliate programs, etc). Fashion blogging is a creative process. Fashionistas are creative people; it makes sense that they enjoy writing. Fashion bloggers are tired of reading opinions from other people and wish to express their own opinion. Although it is embarrassing to admit, I contribute to several but do NOT derive much of an income for my efforts (yes, this is maybe because I do not write well…). Therefore, I do not think financial gain is the primary reason that the world has to

What is Size XO Fashion

What is size XO fashion ? OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO.  It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed.  Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist.  I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL.  The lady writting the post mentioned she measured them and they appeared to be the same.  Anyway, I tried to research the size and did not find much at all.  It is my understanding (possibly and incorrect understanding) that size XO clothing was created for larger size women in the same manner that size zero was created for smaller size women.  It is very possibly simply a "vanity" size. OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, " The sizes XL and OX are in fact different. An OX provides more room in various areas of the garment such as the body, armholes, sleeve length and shoulders. And a 1X hav
