LOS ANGELES — With higher budgets but still focused on price, buyers shopped for novelty items and fashionable basics at the contemporary fashion market that ended here last week.
Merchants from Macy’s, Nordstrom, Holt Renfrew, American Rag & Cie, Amazon.com and a slew of specialty stores searched for upbeat trends and fanciful details, such as sequins, fringe, cashmere and fur, as they checked out the holiday collections at Designers & Agents, Brighte Companies and the showrooms in Cooper Design Space, New Mart and California Market Center.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
