had the opportunity to visit Venue Trade Show last week (July 8) and got a glimpse of what the future of streetwear has in store. The independent trade show celebrated its third official show with a host of great lectures from the likes of Chris Ngo (The Leverage Sales Agency owner) and Lady Maximo (stylist for Dr. Jays).

The show itself seeks to create a platform for newly launched and already established brands to connect with buyers and other entrepreneurs whom are looking to market their own trends before they blow up.

Notable brands showing off their collections included Grand Society, The Others, E THE REAL and United Schemers.

The Venue Trade Show returns to Los Angeles’ Cooper Building next January.
