Los Angeles, California – April 11, 2019 LA Fashion Festival (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.

Revitalizing the historic heart of Downtown LA to celebrate the city’s cultural, culinary, and creative essence, ROW DTLA has transformed the industrial backdrop of the former LA Terminal Market into a fresh concept of experiential retail and wellness, with specialty dining, shopping, and innovative commerce housed within its open, green spaces. This iconic landmark makes a uniquely invigorating and fitting venue for the festival, particularly given its location in LA’s growing Fashion & Art Districts.

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 festival incites meaningful exchanges via an immersive program of cutting-edge brand experiences, hands-on masterclasses, and thought-provoking panel discussions.

“Supporting creatives & the LA community while promoting awareness of sustainability through inclusive events like LAFF: that’s what drives ROW DTLA. We are thrilled to team up with LAFF to bring together a vibrant collective of brands transforming today’s fashion landscape.” Karen Yi, Events & Marketing Manager, ROW DTLA

A 3-day festival taking place on September 19, 20, & 21, the LAFF 2019 program will include daily screenings of fashion films, workshops, masterclasses, pop-ups, lectures, and stimulating experiences, with the awards show taking place on the final evening. ROW DTLA and the festival are open to the public, however certain events will require registration via the LAFF website.

The fashion industry plays an instrumental role in shaping consumer values and lifestyle choices, especially in Los Angeles, which is also a haven for sustainable living where green is the new black. While the conversation on sustainable fashion continues to gather momentum, LAFF 2019 would like to take it further by asking: how can we make sustainable fashion more accessible and inclusive? Sustainability shouldn’t be a luxury; it should be a way of life.
