This inaugural year will be a testament as to whether or not New Orleans can sustain itself as a fashion mecca. I don't think we'll ever be as fashion destination the way NYC or even L.A. is but the real litmus test will be the draw of independent, locally based designers doing small scale operations. How will be put our own NOLA spin on the scene we are trying to create here? That will be the big draw vs. replicating what exists elsewhere.
The fact that we don't have a substantial mall in Orleans Parish makes it evident that creating this fashion culture will prove challenging at best. Regardless I will be attending two of the fashion weeks as they've both piqued my interest.
