“There are more creative people here than in any place at any time at any time in the history of human beings,” said Los Angeles County Museum of Art director Michael Govan in a toast at a dinner celebrating The Business of Fashion’s latest print issue, “America,” at the museum’s Ray’s and Stark Bar, co-hosted with his wife Katherine Ross and BoF founder and chief executive Imran Amed. “This is a very special time and place and that’s represented by so many people I know here.”
