On the eve of Los Angeles’ Mayoral Election, (and LA Fashion Week’s Fall 2013 presentations), LA Fashion Week.com today announced exclusive interviews with the two leading candidates, City Controller Wendy Greuel and Councilman Eric Garcetti.
Topics of discussion included items such as; City support for LA Fashion Week, Global perceptions of the event, the revenue impact of the event on the City, and whether or not either candidate would pledge public funds in support of LA Fashion Week.
This roundtable discussion with the mayoral candidates was inspired by a popular feature on LAFashionWEEK.com known as the “Producer’s Roundtable Discussion,” where editors conduct conversations with the main producers of LA Fashion Week events. During the last Producer’s Roundtable Discussion, every single producer agreed the City should be doing more in support of a cohesive and impactful Fashion Week in Los Angeles.
John Forrester, the founder and editor of LAFashionWeek.com commented: “We hope the victor in the LA Mayoral contest will take an active role in facilitating a world-class Fashion Week in Los Angeles, as well as protecting the rights of garment industry workers for fair wages and decent working conditions.”
