Los Angeles Men’s Market (LAMM) also made its return, running concurrently with LA Fashion Market. Kellen Roland, President of The NTWRK Agency and Co-Organizer of LAMM reported the success of the Show, which included a notable cross section of retailers such as American Rag, Revolve Clothing, Len Drusken, Neiman Marcus, Suru, Neo 39, Number A, and more.

This is one step closer to our goal of making LA Men's Market a vital stop for buyers when planning out their yearlyschedules.”

Sarah Zane, national sales representative for Miami based accessories brand, By Lilla, made their West Coast debut, “We had such a great Show. We opened somewhere between 15-20 new accounts.
