The Ins and Outs of Fashion Designers’ Innovations

Creativity in the fashion industry comes in many forms. It pops up when a designer sees an incredible movie or travels to an exotic destination. It emerges when they look at old photos or see someone walking down the street in a vintage dress.

For years, Los Angeles’ designers have been trendsetters when it comes to ideas and fashion. The premium-denim trend started in Los Angeles as did streetwear, activewear and, of course, swimwear.

California’s sun-splashed climate and beach scene give designers a different perspective on fashion, fabrics and colors that are often mimicked around the world. Is it a coincidence that some of the most sought-after celebrity influencers reside in the City of Angels?

The California Apparel News touched base with some of Los Angeles’ up-and-coming designers and asked them to share their road to success and how they create their fashions.
