LOS ANGELES — Retail buyers gave a thumbs-up to the affordable and accessible fashion presented at the recent Los Angeles contemporary fashion market.
“This is one of the best markets I’ve seen in years,” said Amy Anderson, owner of women’s contemporary apparel boutique Viva Diva in San Rafael, Calif., mirroring the sentiment of many buyers who visited the showrooms housed in the California Market Center, New Mart, Cooper Design Space and Lady Liberty Building, as well as trade shows including Designers & Agents, Coeur, Focus and Select. At the trade expo, held March 12 to 15, the buying contingent included representatives from the likes of Dillard’s, Kohl’s, Bon-Ton, Piperlime.com and Nastygal.com.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
