    LA Fashion Week 2017 Attracts NY Designers

    Los Angeles Fashion Week kicks off with a new twist this year. NY designers Tommy Hilfiger, Rebecca Minkoff, and Rachel Comey will be staging their new collections in LA this winter. CEO of CFDA Steven Kolb tells Business of Fashion there is no singular reason for the switch to California. Instead, each company is aligning with a "singular objective" that creates value for their brand. In Rachel Comey's case, the designer of chic tomboy attire may want to focus attention on her latest store opening on Melrose Place. And Rebecca Minkoff has a collaboration in the works at the Grove for a "high-end consumer experience." Official LA Fashion week dates are March 9-12 at the Pacific Design Center.
