LA Fashion Market has also been a great opportunity to build relationships with new buyers. We are excited to be able to welcome them into our new showroom.”
 
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.
 
“We are very pleased with the turn out,” said Roland. “We had more buyers come Day 1 than we did at our initial first Men’s Market. We also noticed buyers were spending more time with brands and writing orders. This is one step closer to our goal of making LA Men's Market a vital stop for buyers when planning out their yearlyschedules.”
 
Additionally, new exhibitors at special exhibit area, SELECT Contemporary Tradeshow, confirmed reports of success throughout the Show. 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. We are extremely happy and will be returning for the Spring Show.”
