Fab Fall fashion in L.A.'s sprawling October 2017 skies...

In addition to all the Halloween-themed billboards haunting L.A.'s October skies this month, there's also been a new collection of fall fashion and apparel ads trying to turn heads.

Fashion billboards
Unity through Diversity LRG Clothing billboard
The arts, fashion and creative people have always been at the forefront of standing up to oppressive regimes, so it's nice to see this 'Unity though diversity' billboard from the LRG Clothing Company in this time of Nazi marches, wall building and free speech backlash.
Ralph Lauren American Dream billboard
In a similar vein, I'm sorry but for many people the 'American Dream' is fading fast, for the poor, people of colour, disabled, undocumented, those with pre-existing conditions, LGBT citizens, so this Tommy Hilfiger seems like a nice idea, but unfortunately these days it's becoming more of a nightmare for some.
Gucci Roman Rhapsody Matteo Zoppis billboard
Gucci's Cruise 2018 collection ad creative starring Matteo Zoppis really evoked Prince for me this month.
Marc Jacobs FW17 fashion billboard
