The Mayor Declares Fashion Week Open

It's hard to think spring with these semi-chilly-ish temps. Fashion Week, however, is unafraid to show a little shoulder and a bit of thigh. Gutsy, Fashion Week. Very gutsy.

LA's annual party-runway-shop-show fashion fete starts on October 8th and struts, shoulder and thigh out, right through Halloween. The mayor, several industry luminaries (including Max Azria) and a bevy of gussied-up models gathered on October 7th at California Market Center to declare Fashion Week open. Was there fanfare and photo taking? You bet. 

The tog-related to-dos and openings will dot the city all month long, so while much of our fashion industry is hubbed downtown, look for fashion-y parties to take place in Beverly Hills and beyond. And even if you cannot make it to one of the shows, you can definitely lust after the sparkly goods on display. We figure we'll see them in shop windows around town in pretty short order.

We can also check out the daily headlines here, which is not quite as interesting as sitting alongside a catwalk, but still pretty insider-y nonetheless.
