Alcantara is a unique Italian-made material found on some of the world's leading automotive brands. A number of vehicles at the L.A. Auto Show will have interiors furnished with Alcantara. Based on patented technology, it's also the choice of leading fashion designers, as well as the designers of accessories and home furnishings.
The Italian brand also hosted a private fashion show during the first press day at the L.A. Auto Show for designers, partners and auto-industry executives at Vibiana, in the city's downtown historical district. The party included fashions and accessories from Rosa Clandestino, Jamin Puech and PLORE's Zhang Xi.
