It is a good place. However, many shops are only for whole sales. You should study it very well before going... it is huge.

When I was told we were going to the fashion district, I wasn't really looking forward to it. Little did I know it was a 70 square block flea market with literally everything you could think about buying or eating. So impressed.

Fabulous! Didn't know that LA Fashion District existed till just before this trip. We had a little more time, so checked out Santee Alley – mind-boggling HUGE Fashion District! Is a design, warehouse, and distribution hub; retail and trade. Sensational prom dresses, beautiful ballgowns & cocktail dresses; reasonable prices. In Santee Alley, boho prints, skin-tight bodycon dresses, floaty chiffon numbers,... More

I love wandering around the wholesale shops. You can find almost anything at great prices. I top up my wardrobe when visiting Los Angeles. Parking is available all day for around $5. Wander to your hearts content and find a fabulous handbag for $10. Just bought loads of clothes and handbags for around $15 each item reduced from way over... More

The freeways were packed getting there so we opted for side streets through china town. Saw a lot of homeless encampments. Parking is challenging. We found a place that allowed for the entire day for 5 dollars and tipped the attendant as well. We googled shops prior to going so we had an idea of where we wanted to go.... More

Was hard to get a parking spot here. Lots of inexpensive branded stores which isn't great quality. Found a complex with some better quality goods such as BCBG, but this was only their sample display room. We found a guess store that sold samples that some stores didn't have. Got lost in that complex a little. Fashion design school located... More

Shopping around the fashion District in downtown Los Angeles it's a great place to find super fantastic deals. You got a look around. There are blocks and blocks and blocks at fashion vendors. The deals are amazing. It's definitely worth a trip to try to find things that you like.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
