‘The difference between Los Angeles and yogurt is that yogurt has real culture.’
Over the years, the East / West Coast rivalry between New York and Los Angeles has lead to some serious mudslinging. Disdainful New Yorkers maintained L.A. had no culture, as in theatre, art galleries, fashion, design or even worse, taste (that was a low blow.)
Since then, we’ve proudly opened the ‘new’ Getty, The Broad Museum DTLA, hosted our own fashion shows, and established design trends. Take that, Big Apple.
More proof ? This past Thursday, fashion tastemaker Josh Peskowitz partnered with Buick to celebrate the Los Angeles Design community in Los Angeles. Peskowitz is well known in the global menswear industry as the former Men’s Fashion Director of Bloomingdales and for his work as both a stylist and writer.
Buick and Josh Peskowitz put together a who’s who of key LA tastemakers from the worlds of fashion, culture, design and media for an intimate dinner, hosted at the historic Chateau Marmont Penthouse as part of Buick’s “Culture Happens Here”Dinner Series. The series was created as a platform for driving (sorry) conversation among Los Angeles’ cultural design, fashion and art communities and celebrating the cultural changes taking place on the west coast – with Los Angeles quickly becoming a “Place of Change Now.” Told ya.
