There’s Fashion Week Los Angeles, which kicked off three days of events on Sunday . That’s not to be confused with the trademarked “LA Fashion Week,” which kicks off tomorrow .

Los Angeles is an art capital, a cultural center and home to Hollywood stars, so why doesn’t it have one cohesive fashion week?
