Los Angeles' design aesthetic could best be described as a heterogeneous hodgepodge, with a layering of incongruous styles contributing to the city's characteristic but fractured visual identity. The seventh annual Los Angeles Design Festival celebrates this diversity, with a series of exhibitions, workshops, pop-up showrooms, discussions, tours and screenings. The festival kicks off with an opening-night party at City Market South, featuring music from dublab and a performance by contemporary dance troupe MashUp, followed by three days of programs that explore various perspectives on Angeleno design from architecture and urbanism to furniture, food, fashion, technology and craft.
