Today and tomorrow, industry insiders from across the country are exploring Agenda Long Beach: a creative lifestyle fashion trade show. Less intense than MAGIC in Vegas but equally inspiring, the two-day showcase specifically caters to brands and retailers in the streetwear, action sports, and lifestyle arenas. Besides hosting mainstay heritage brands like Nike, Reebok, Stussy, and RVCA, there are tons of Racked regulars on the scene this year.
For the ladies, essential blogger brands like Wildfox and Stylestalker are in the mix, as are emerging labels like Full Court and Quay Eyewear. For guys, Tyler the Creator's zany Odd Future collection is present, as well as cool Malibu surf line Brothers Marshall, which Agenda founder Aaron Levant is a big fan of. "Each one of these new brands brings something unique and adds another dimension to our diverse Long Beach show offering."
Score a pass to the show here if you're looking to attend.
