With A-listers like Fergie, Alicia Keys, LiLo & Pink, luxe Streetwear fashion by KRMA now found on Taobao!
Hollywood, CA. – Over the last decade, crops of young designers have popped up all over Los Angeles. Like the world of reality celebrities and their pop culture influence, Los Angeles has emerged as the fashion underdog that the world should pay close attention to. This certainly earns tinsel-town the title of North America’s West End, as in London’s iconic incubator district, where influential young Brit’s in the 70’s & 80’s challenged and changed an entire fashion establishment forever. Now with Los Angeles’ in flux of young international brands banking on a piece of American pie, (sales & celebs) LA has become a platform for what’s next in fashion.
