Since the inception of Paris couture houses, fashion has been reserved for elite insiders. This tradition continues today — many of the most coveted fashion events are invite only. This, of course closes off the most important person, the consumer. With the push toward a more inclusive fashion world, how we interact with fashion definitely needs a change.
Enter the launch of Made Los Angeles. Launching this June, Made Los Angeles is looking to bring coveted fashion to the people.
Made will be a public ticketed event, headlining Moschino’s Men’s Spring ’17 collection and Women’s resort ’17 collection and Golf Wang, Rapper Tyler the Creator’s fashion line.
Made originally formed in New York city started in 2009. Every New York fashion week, Made showcases need-to-know and up-and-coming designers giving the coolest designers a platform. (Made has opened the fashion gates for illustrious designers working it today like Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler.)
Made’s taking it a step further by bridging together the creativity of fashion, art, and music, offering an event that includes pop-up shops showcasing fashion designers and artist. Clearly this is another mark of the ever evolving fashion industry to be more inclusive, by providing a breeding ground of shared creativity between the creative and the public. There has been discussion about opening NYFW to the public, in an effort to make fashion more accessible. Design houses like Givenchy offered a limited number of tickets for it’s Fall NYFW show, and Kanye West merged fashion and music with his public fashion show this February have transformed the idea of a runway into an event. Let’s hope more and more fashion shows start to open their doors to the public.
Tickets are not on sale yet, but keep an eye out for what is sure to be the next trend in how we interact with fashion.
