LOS ANGELES | SEP 15, 2019
A NEW TYPE OF FOOD FESTIVAL - By…
Family Style is a cross-cultural food festival taking place in Los Angeles on September 15, 2019.The world’s top culinary talent will gather at Television City Studios for one afternoon to collaborate with prominent streetwear brands and artists on one-of-a-kind dishes and limited merchandise.
FOOD IS THE BEST EXCUSE TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. IRONICALLY, FOOD FESTIVALS ARE UNINVITING.
Food festivals can be boring, snobbish, and exclusive. Food, on the contrary, is fun, communal, and the basis of gathering. The Hundreds champions community and has built a global brand around the notion of being better together. Whether throwing art shows, basketball tournaments, warehouse sales or concerts, we have used clothing to build relationships for 16 years. We now seek to do that through the universal language of food.
Family Style celebrates collaboration between respected chefs/restaurants and popular brands/designers.
In Streetwear, we memorialize relationships as “collaborations.” Our carefully curated list of world-class talent will be creating unique food items and design specialty merchandise together. The event itself is also a collaboration of cultures, merging the “foodie” world with street fashion, contemporary art with music. The festival is open to all ages, all backgrounds, and all interests that are reflective of LA’s diverse makeup.
