  In New York, Los Angeles fashion has come of age. New York Fashion Week, which kicked off Wednesday with more than 300 fashion shows and presentations scheduled to take place in the coming days, is not just a platform for New York designers to gain media attention and retail orders. It's a showcase for designers from all over the world - and, notably this year, Los Angeles, which now has a breadth of talent to rival any major fashion city. Twenty years ago, Los Angeles had a reputation for producing clothing that was casual, comfortable and wearable, but not necessarily innovative or runway-worthy.

Sometime in early November, on an Amtrak Coast Starlight train hurtling north from Los Angeles to Seattle, the aisles between the seats will spontaneously become a fashion runway. They will showcase designer Jared Gold's fall 2009 Armada collection for on-board fans and customers -- who may also find themselves treated to impromptu musical performances -- as part of a seven-city fashion tour of the American West that will include open-to-the-public, virally marketed runway shows set in train stations and full-blown pop-up boutiques.

When I started working at the Los Angeles Times nearly 15 years ago, downtown L.A. was a style wasteland. Sure, there were denim wash houses, sewing shops, designer showrooms and studios, but you wouldn't know it walking down the street. Fashion was something that happened behind closed doors. When I went to New Moon across from the California Market Center to meet designers over the famous Chinese chicken salad, I didn't feel safe walking the seven blocks from The Times office.

Many designers are culture vultures, gleaning the Zeitgeist from headlines, art shows and the buzz among the glitterati. Jared Gold is not such a designer. There's a reverence for the wrong and the sinister at Gold's studio, in an early 1900s building just a spat's throw from the Los Angeles Police Department's Rampart Division. Here, Gold has staged fashion shows accessorized with live Madagascar cockroaches and accompanied by toy piano music--played by the designer himself.

Jared Gold's Black Chandelier collection was full of wearable looks with a sense of humor, including a black circle skirt with robot-shaped patches, a black miniskirt trimmed in pink and red "brothel fringe," as Gold described it, and a blue shirtdress embellished with a pinstriped ruffle hem.

As the fall fashion shows continue, this week winding their way to Milan, the final details for next month's runway shows in L.A. are still being ironed out. The most hotly anticipated event is being organized by 7th on Sixth, the same outfit that stages New York's Fashion Week at Bryant Park. "Mercedes-Benz Shows L.A." will take place April 1 through 4 at the Downtown Standard Hotel, with three runways that will cost designers $750 to $3,500 to rent (compared to $20,000 at Bryant Park).

Potluck dishes, warm beer and venues such as a downtown alley haven't exactly landed L.A.'s fashion shows on the map with their more established counterparts in Milan, Paris and New York. But this year could be different. Recent issues of Vogue, W and InStyle have found the fashion-forward turning westward for inspiration. Indie L.A.

TECHNICALLY, L.A. Fashion Week is a members-only affair. (And we're not talking jackets.) The action happens at Culver City's Smashbox Studios, Sunday to next Thursday, and if you're not an insider, good luck getting in. But fledgling fashionistas, take heart: Several events on the periphery are open, even if you've never uttered the word "fabulous." Perhaps the most established alternative event is Friday's "The New Garde: A Celebration of Innovative L.A.

Local designers are deconstructing L.A. style--and nowhere was that more apparent than during fashion week here. In all, more than 24 designers showed their spring and summer 2001 collections. Many presented an aesthetic that refreshingly went beyond the flesh and glam of Hollywood and the surfer looks of California. The L.A. designs were decidedly different from those on view at New York's recent shows, which offered primarily ladylike looks and 1980s chic.
