Letter from the Publisher

Los Angeles is known worldwide as the land of beautiful and fashionable people… and for good reason. But it’s not just the pretty faces and stylish looks that make L.A. the epicenter of style and beauty trends. Many of the leading looks, services and products behind keeping Angelenos so chic are from home-grown businesses. Successful and emerging apparel and beauty companies drive tremendous economic growth in the Los Angeles region and make Southern California a major force in the fashion and beauty business. These companies are definitely worth celebrating!

Welcome to our annual Fashion & Beauty Awards special supplement, commemorating the lively and unique event we held December 12th at the L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown.

The event brought together industry leaders as we recognized leading brands and their accomplishments in a wide range of categories, including beauty, fashion, direct-to-consumer, service and social responsibility. Our Made in California and Trendsetter awards were just two handed out during the event.

In the following pages we spotlight some of the professionals and companies that make L.A.’s fashion and beauty industries so successful.

To all the great organizations and trendsetters profiled in this volume, we say thank you!

Best regards,

Anna Magzanyan

CEO & Publisher
