LA Fashion Week is a melting pot of West Coast designers and international talent. Designers who are committed to the show include LA-based stylist and designer Shani James as well as Australian women's contemporary label Betty Tran.

Additional designers who will show include Mexican streetwear label Anuar Layon, Peruvian celebrity couturier Noe Bernacelli, Maison The Faux from Amsterdam and eveningwear designer Michael Leyva.

LAFW was declared by LA Mayor Eric Garcetti as the official fashion week of LA and has been recognized by former First Lady Michelle Obama for being innovative and promoting cultural diversity in the industry.

Chipman added that Los Angeles "is surging with energy and artistic talent, and we cannot wait to unveil this season's offerings."
