To compete with New York Fashion Week, the organizers of LA's Fashion Week announced this year's shows will take place only at downtown's Union Station.

But wait: it may be a designer knock-off.

Fashion Trends Daily's Michelle Dalton Tyree says there's a fight over control of the "LA Fashion Week" brand.

She says a new company stepped in to wrestle the direction away from person who organized the calendar for over a decade. Then they announced that Union Station would be the sole venue.

However, designers told Tyree they still plan to showcase all around Los Angeles.

This battle is just the latest in trying to give LA's Fashion Week a makeover so it's no longer in New York Fashion Week's shadow.

Tyree joins Take Two to talk about the yearly grumblings about LA Fashion Week and how to give it a makeover that helps it pop.
