LA Fashion Gets a Lift
The Fall Fashion issue of the August 15, 2004 Los Angeles Times Magazine provides LAist with much to chew on (and spit out in disgust).
Henry Shea, a local media entrepreneur, has launched a magazine aimed at shopping in LA. Called Shop Lift, the glossy encourages Angelenos to discover treasures all over the city.
Booth Moore, fashion critic for the Los Angeles Times, examines the power of local independent boutiques like Kitson, Fred Segal and Intuition to influence national fashion trends and celebrity-driven style. Others like Scout and Satine prefer to keep a lower profile.
Fur is back in fashion and now Angelenos can play too with 'seasonless fur,' which is used as trim or knitted into lighter fabrics. Brentwood publicist Jann Berman admits to being a "fur fiend... Among the many furs she owns are a pink fox muff, a long fox coat, a pink sheared beaver reversible raincoat...and a knitted rabbit stole she calls 'darling.'"
