It wasn't New York, but that was exactly the point made by the Coalition of Los Angeles Designers and the crowd that cheered the nine collections presented Wednesday night. Among the standouts were Goretti, designed by Monica Behan and Desiree Kohan, who successfully pulled off an eclectic mix of fabrics and looks such as a cream leather vest teamed with a flounced tulle lace skirt over tulle ruched leggings.

Fashion Week is held five times a year at the California Mart for wholesalers and other players in the fashion industry interested in upcoming collections. The event pales in comparison to New York's Fashion Week, which is held twice a year. The Big Apple attracts international designers and stages more than 100 runway shows and an equal number of displays in showrooms, generating millions of dollars of revenue for the city.

It was a little fashion sleight of hand, or rather, arm, that appeared in the fall 2002 collection of Eisbar shown on the runway of the Coalition of Los Angeles Designers show last week. The leg warmers that accessorized the new women's collection were originally intended to be sleeves, said Eisbar co-founder Bobby Benveniste, who said this week that he was inspired by a pile of castoff jacket parts last season.

Now that Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss and alleged Toluca Lake madam Jody "Babydol" Gibson are both plying wares on the Web, I thought the sites http://www.heidiwear.net and http://www.babydol.com screamed out for a comparison. I know that's very Entertainment Weekly, but bear with me. Both sites feature mugs: Heidi: A collection of five handmade coffee cups made while she was in prison. ("The day-to-day lifestyle was so stressful and hectic, this gave her peace of mind," according to the site.

Los Angeles designers are not about to let outsiders define California style, which has been ripped off all over the globe lately. They struck back (mostly with success) over the weekend in the first of their spring 2003 runway shows. Chanel's surfboards don't have much on Jennifer Nicholson's flouncy seashell-print party dresses, Eisbar's palm tree-and-sunset T-shirts; David Cardona's rock n' roll leather evening gown and Ashley Paige's pink crocheted bikini.

Dear Fashion Police: I am a graduate of fashion design school in Canada. I have worked for others and for myself in the field of fashion. I am currently in Los Angeles to continue to do the same, hoping my chances are better down in the eccentric, fashionable City of Angels. I could make things and sell them on consignment in stores, but I don't have the backing. I'm asking for any suggestions for how to get into the field here.

While most of L.A. is still basking in the summer sun, buyers this week at New Mart's Holiday market 2000 were stocking up on holiday evening wear. Taffeta dresses, as well as evening wear in silver and gold, did the best, according to Les Appel, whose Rex Lester line has been nominated for the 1999 Dallas International Fashion Award. Appel sees stores buying more evening wear in anticipation of all the dressy or formal celebrations and parties the millennium will bring.

In any other context, it's not a radical fashion idea to show a pair of pants and a woman's skirt cut from the same fabric. But in a presentation Sunday at the historic Schindler house, those garments symbolized a spirit of cooperation that's energizing the Los Angeles fashion scene. The novel concept wasn't just that the clothes matched, but that two different designers created them.
