From popped collar pastel polo shirts that were all the rage in the ‘80s to the just got out of bed grunginess of rumpled flannel and hoodies in the ‘90s to last year’s legging and ankle boot revival, how does a fashion movement gain such instantaneous, widespread popularity?

By MAGIC—the twice-annual international fashion industry trade event during which brands from Abercrombie to Kenneth Cole converge on Las Vegas to show off their latest creations and inspire new style trends. From this cauldron of creative mojo will come the next big thing that everyone just has to have.

While only fashion industry insiders can enter the MAGIC wonderland of trendy delights, there are plenty of stylish equal-opportunity afterparties you’re welcome to attend. Rub elbows with designers and models, listen to entertainers like Asher Roth and DJ Steve Aoki and maybe even score some free swag at this week’s hautest fashion fetes.
