L.A. Fashion Week Returns, Recognized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America
Los Angeles Fashion Week is back from Oct. 18 to 22.
N4XT Experiences is behind the reimagined production in Los Angeles since acquiring LAFW in January 2022. Entering its second year, the lineup — recognized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America — will include Imitation of Christ, No Sesso, Theophilio, Luis De Javier, Kwame Adeusi, Neon Cowboys, Sergio Hudson, BruceGlen, TomBogo and Advisry. Sami Miro Vintage, AnOnlyChild and Demobaza are among the returning brands.
“We’ve invited and curated a specific group of designers to showcase the future of fashion — exciting emerging brands showing alongside respected, established labels with deep ties to Los Angeles,” Noah Kozlowski, vice president, head of designer relations at N4XT Experiences, said in a statement.
Founded Ciarra Pardo, president of LAFW and former chief creative officer of Fenty — with Imad Izemrane, Marcus Ticotin and Keith Abell, Kozlowski is N4XT Experiences’ newest team member. He’s responsible for securing designers for partnerships with LAFW.
“Each brand brings a unique perspective and we are proud to present this preliminary list of designers,” Kozlowski continued. “They have all been carefully selected to reflect the dynamism of the fashion industry, with important opportunities to introduce new names to center stage and help them grow their businesses globally. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of creators, as well as audiences. There is something for everyone and we cannot wait to share more soon.”
Imitation of Christ kicks off festivities, while No Sesso will be showing at LAFW for the first time. Saintwoods, the Montreal-based lifestyle brand, will host the official after party.
