Although the Los Angeles Fashion Council did not reach the funding goal for their "London Calling" Kickstarter campaign, the organization and designers have corralled enough money to follow through with the initiative anyway.
The official press release will go out tomorrow, but LAFC co-founder Kelsi Smith revealed to us that they are sending LA designers Jen Awad, Victor Wilde, Bryan Hearns, Alana Hale, and Curly V to London, in addition to "a handful of accessory designers, including Sires Crown and Bijou Van Ness." The showcase will take place at the Truman Brewery in London.
