With fashion film as the medium of storytelling, we aim to
inspire cinematic narratives that take the conversation further.
We’re harnessing the influence of the LA motion picture
community, creating meaningful exchanges in collaboration with
forward-thinking brands to better reach the connected masses.
The future is inclusive, and consumers are connected.
Conventional retail is giving way to mobile shopping
platforms, with Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
interfaces quickly gaining momentum. In tandem with
the morphing retail landscape, LAFF is here to bridge
the gap by creating immersive experiences that connect
brands with consumers.
Transparency is the future. Beauty brands will need to
be authentic and true, to heed the call for “green
living” while being more inclusive. As a major
influencer of consumer values and lifestyle choices,
beauty brands have the power to shape meaningful
narratives, and LAFF is here to facilitate them.
We are here to encourage the re-invention of retail,
which is now relying heavily on experiential and
entertainment environments. The LAFF EcoLounge
presents a curated collection of brands dedicated
towards making sustainability a way of life, against the
retail extravaganza of 65+ stores & restaurants
situated throughout ROW DTLA.
LA FASHION & ARTS DISTRICT
LAFF partners with ROW DTLA for its second edition taking place this September,
presenting a curated line-up of stimulating experiences with ROW’s unique
collective of sustainable, creative, cultural, and independent retail brands.
ROW DTLA and the festival are open to the public, however certain events will
require registration via the LAFF website.
SUSTAINABLE LIVING: THE NEW BLACK
Poised as a cornerstone of LA fashion events, LA Fashion Festival (LAFF) uses film,
retail, innovation, and beauty influences to inspire meaningful interactions on cultural
expression and creative identity.
The partnership between LAFF and ROW DTLA is rooted in shared social goals of
inclusion and sustainability. A multilayered cultural initiative, LAFF’s primary aim is to
showcase progressive ideas in a cultural experience of film, retail, innovation, and
beauty influences, but it takes the conversation further.
The fashion industry plays an instrumental role in shaping
consumer values and lifestyle choices. While the conversation
on sustainable fashion continues to gather momentum, we at
LAFF would like to take it further by asking: how can we make
sustainable fashion more accessible and inclusive?

“It’s not just luxury brands —
there’s a creative class of cool
kids doing things differently —
and thriving,” says LA-based
fashion consultant Katherine
Ross, who often advises and
mentors young designers in the
city. “People just like it here.” -
Apparel and beauty retailers
are driving retail spending
activity in Southern California.
Residents in the region spend
$15 billion annually on apparel
and an additional $5.6 billion
on beauty products, according
to research from CBRE. -
Still, if the last decade has proven anything, it’s that
the L.A. fashion scene is thriving without a traditional
fashion week. Designers and brand builders have
figured out other ways to generate buzz and sales —
social media and influencers chief among them. -
Google, Netflix, Amazon, and Apple are rapidly
growing their footprint in Los Angeles. By 2022, four
