We are happy to offer exhibition space for emerging brands! Showcase your brand to potential buyers, showrooms and influencers with us! Exhibitors are able to exhibit on day 2!


Expos are usually housed in big venues that only brands with the biggest pockets can afford leaving consumers overwhelmed and confused with so many choices.

At The Fashionpreneur Academy's LA Fashion Retreat, we cut through the noise and clutter by providing a uniquely curated experience for Fashion Enthusiasts to directly connect Indie Brands that support the Multicultural community.


The Fashionpreneur Academy has created the LA Fashion Retreat to change the standard of how multicultural emerging brands are represented within the fashion industry through an intimate experience. We want to provide a platform for attendees to CONNECT with Indie Fashion Brand Founders, NETWORK with Bloggers, Fashion Enthusiasts, SUPPORT future makers and artisans and provide education.
