Snow could be falling outside and Angelenos will still walk around in flip flops. And most Americans couldn't tell the difference between Kmart and Karl Lagerfeld. But Sally Singer, fashion news and features director of Vogue, heads this panel discussion, “Conscientious Consumption: Sustainability and the Future of Luxury,” on how fashion has been bitten by the recession with four local tastemakers. Panelists include jewelry maker Tom Binns; denim king Adriano Goldschmied; clothes and home furnishings designer Christina Kim; and one-half of Rodarte line, Kate Mulleavy. A Q&A follows the talk.
