The Los Angeles Fashion Council is getting ready to take a slate of L.A.-based designers to Japan's upcoming fashion week.
We caught up with Smith earlier Tuesday to find out more about the jaunt to Japan and she shared the following details:
--The designers will be showcased in a multidesigner hybrid presentation/showroom format (similar to the way the British Fashion Council stages the London Showrooms here in Los Angeles).
--The LAFC showcase will take place for one day only -- March 17 -- the first day of the March 17-22 run of Tokyo shows.
Most importantly -- especially if you're an L.A.-based label not on the above list -- is that Smith says she's still got room to add two more designers to the mix. (Interested parties can contact the LAFC by email.)
