Fashion Los Angeles Groundbreaking

Wake up Fashion Industry, there's a new event in town and it's about to rock your world!

Wednesday night marked the official groundbreaking ceremony for Fashion Los Angeles, a community platform for global exposure. The energy in the air was alluring, the crowd was debonair and Michael Venedicto showed us his heart, guts and glory. With his enthusiastic words and motivating spirit, I must admit I was a bit nervous my mascara would run, but as the noise of overwhelming applause and support began, I knew I could sniffle and no one would hear.

In the heart of Downtown LA, accompanied by the stunning views of the city and neighbor to famed Frank Gehry's Walt Disney concert hall, Grand & 1st, will be the new home of Fashion Week in Los Angeles. From February 1-7, 2011 this empty parking lot you see below will house more than 65 designers and 10,000 fashion professionals as Fashion Los Angeles brings this new, innovative, prefab village to life. With the help and support of the community, Fashion Los Angeles will meet the needs of designers and the fashion industry and in my opinion, exceed every ones' expectations.

and yes, you may of recognized the lovely lady with the bright, pink hair...
