It's been a while since our last check-in to Coeur, a bi-annual trade show in DTLA highlighting unique apparel jewelry, footwear, and accessories from both rising and established designers. The three-day event relocated from the Cooper Design Space to the Alexandria Ballrooms, where we discovered dozens of inspiring booths from local and global talents.
We also made a pit stop at Designers & Agents, which took over the New Mart's third floor. Both events showcased an incredible mix of cool finds ready to hit the spring market, so we narrowed down our favorites from homegrown brands. Above, explore our top picks from the best LA designers to watch now.
