20 Under 30: Micah Adam Cohen
Our "20 Under 30" series continues with Micah Adam Cohen, a native Angeleno making a big splash in the fashion world. One day he was just another nice boy from Brentwood who started his own fashion line. Then, he exhibited the line at the Pool Trade Show, an a boutique lifestyle trade show showcasing fashion-forward designers. At the show, a Chinese clothing company approached him about designing their men's line. Now Micah designs a full collection and has offices in Shanghai and Los Angeles.
Age and Occupation:
I’m 25 years old & a men’s fashion designer.
How long have you lived in Los Angeles, and which neighborhood do you live in?
I’ve essentially lived in Los Angeles my entire life – except for my four years at Pitzer College in Claremont, CA. I grew up in Brentwood and have lived in Silver Lake and Santa Monica. I’m currently living in Downtown.
Why do you live in Los Angeles?
I live in LA for so many reasons. But, mainly, there’s just no better place to live.
I am able to pursue my career in fashion and be close to my family and friends. Of course, the weather is fantastic and there is always something new and different to see/do/experience, due to LA’s most unique attribute — its diversity. And definitely because of the ladies — the most attractive women in the world reside in LA.
