The sun-baked neighborhoods of Los Angeles are home to some of the most creative people across a wide range of fields. As the neighborhoods coalesce, the city itself proves an enormous haven for innovators, entrepreneurs and iconoclasts. Though not typically thought of as a fashion stronghold, LA’s reputation in the world of style is quickly changing. The work of three designers — John Moore, Greg Lauren and Greg Chait — show that Southern California is not only an incubator for fashion, but an area that champions pioneering ideas.
