By Nicole Cifani, special to LAistThis year, LA Fashion Week is bringin' their A-game with nearly two weeks of fashion-related showcases, pop-up shops, salons, presentations and parties, happening from downtown all the way to the coast.

When we think of Fashion Week, other major metropolitan cities like Milan, Paris, London, and NYC immediately come to mind. It's because those cities feature the biggest names in fashion; the moneymakers, the labels that everyone knows. Think Chanel, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney.

LA has always dwindled in the shadows of the beast - the bi-annual New York Fashion Week. The Big Apple is known as the primary place for the fashion industry to call home in the US, attracting buyers, fashion editors and members of the media from across the globe in what amounts to over a half-billion dollars in revenue annually.
