On Friday Los Angeles magazine hosted a panel discussion—part of its Breakfast Conversation series. The food for thought? How to promote Made in L.A. branding and further grow the city’s successful apparel industry. Senior editor Linda Immediato moderated a Q & A with panelists Sam Ku, creative director of AG Jeans, Calleen Cordero, shoe and accessory designer, and John Mc David Lehman creative director and handbag designer for R.B. of Mc D. The event drew a stylish crowd of aspiring and professional fashion designers, writers, bloggers, retailers, fashionistas— all interested in the fate of the apparel industry in L.A. It’s a topic close to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who swung by the event to talk about his recently launched “Designed in L.A.” initiative. Click here to read about the event.
