Ouch, looks like our poor city is getting sartorially snubbed again: two kinda big LA labels, Rory Beca and Wren, are electing to show collections at Austin Fashion Week. Rory Beca is premiering holiday and resort, while Melissa Coker is presenting looks from Summer and Fall 2011. It definitely sounds more market driven, but?our own sad anemic LAFW sure could have used the boost. Ouch. Austin Fashion Week is August 20 - 27. [Racked Inbox, Austin Fashion Week]
