Meet seven made-in-L.A. brands locals are loving right now.
Every time I visit Los Angeles, I leave with an urge to return or — much to my East Coast family’s objection — an impetuous urge to stay. And I’m not alone. L.A. attracts many people from different countries and cultures who gravitate towards the magnetic energy that somehow exists in harmony with its relaxed lifestyle. It’s got great weather year-round, a dedication to health and wellbeing, a city to keep you cultured, and a beach to keep you grounded.
With all L.A. has to offer — including one of the largest manufacturing centers in the U.S. — it's no surprise the city boasts a plethora of emerging designers, hailing from all corners of the world.
