The Fashion Industry Gallery in the Arts District is expanding just in time for its summer collections trade show, Saturday-Tuesday. The wholesale fashion venue is building out new showrooms for True Religion jeans and Juicy Couture among others.


And while FIG is normally closed to the public shopper, it will open for a two-day 75 percent-off sale on Feb. 16 and 17. The sale will include retailers such as Forty Five Ten, Elements, Billy Reid, Krimson & Klover, Turtletique, Sheke Boutique and Milan

Shoes. General admission to the sale is $12. But, those buying the $100 VIP tickets can be admitted two hours before openingto get first dibs on the best merchandise. VIPs also go to the preview party at the W Hotel.
