Fashion insiders will be flocking to Long Beach on January 7th and 8th for the Winter edition of Agenda, a massive lifestyle trade show which caters to buyers, bloggers, and media members and specializes in showcasing the industry's best streetwear brands. In addition to all the usual suspects (Adidas, Converse, Stussy), this season's show will feature tons of local labels including Crap Eyewear, Stance, Mowgli Surf, Bella + Canvas, and RVCA.
Besides checking out the coolest new gear, goods, and gadgets, attendees to the show can crash Friday's 4th annual Emerge Conference with a panel that boasts bigwigs like pro skater/artist Mark Gonzales and Adidas Originals' VP of Global Design, Nic Galway. Also, Agenda will be improving upon the summer's surf-centric addition, The Point, with a little help from a partnership with Surfline.com. This section will be showing off the most cutting edge apparel, accessories, and products by best-known surf brands alongside up-and-comers.
Though reps for Agenda are still waiting for firm commitments of special guests, previous shows have seen the likes of Travis Barker, Lil Wayne, and Amy Purdy. We'll keep you posted on more details as they come.
