LA Men's Market March 17th and 18th
The top Los Angeles Showrooms will once again come together on March 17 and 18 for what is rapidly emerging as the quintessential West Coast men’s buying event.
Press Release from the NTWRK Agency

Building off the momentum of October 2013’s Los Angeles Men’s Market, industry leading brands and buyers from the West Coast will once again be converging on the California Market Center (CMC) for a two-day event aimed at elevating the profile of Downtown Los Angeles as a destination for men’s fashion. Men’s Market will coincide with the CMC’s Market Week and will offer a specialized focus on contemporary men’s fashion and accessories through the support of keystone showrooms including the NTWRK, Flagship, The Foundation & Park. As Downtown LA continues to evolve into a high-profile hub of men’s contemporary, action sports and street fashion, the event aims to bring retailers’ focus back to the high concentration of brands, businesses, and individuals that are leading the charge.

“Downtown Los Angeles is finally emerging as a center for culture & business,” says The NTWRK President and LA Men’s Market co-organizer Kellen Roland. “With the development of the area through businesses such as Acne, Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles & Tanner Goods we are feeding this growth by bringing in the leading brands & buyers from the West Coast.  Last year we accomplished our goal of bringing men’s market back as a viable Arena for brands and buyers to do business& this time around we look to solidify ourselves as the leader in West Coast Men’s Apparel.”

The two-day event will bring together buyers from the West Coast’s top retailers including American Rag, Active Ride Shop, Revolve Clothing&Kitson and brands such as ALIFE, Zanerobe, Herschel Supply Co, K-Way, Obey & Primitive. Attendees will be treated to gourmet breakfast & coffee from Focus and Stumptown Coffee Roasters, complimentary parking at CMC, buyer incentives from participating brands and specialty rates at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles. An opening reception will be held the night of March 17 with an open bar “Upstairs” at Ace Hotel Downtown LA and The Park Showroom will be hosting an open bar and pop-up barbershop.
