The Style fashion week’s venue tripled in size with two runways, and received the Seal of Los Angeles supported by City of Los Angeles Councilman Curren D. Price, Jr.
The ever-growing and innovative week of events earned Style Fashion Week a respected position of influence in the fashion community.
