Most of the outdoor vendors/booths had the same items. We saw leggings/jeggings, makeup, inexpensive jewelry, various types of shoes and clothing, hair accessories, etc. The outdoor vendors are set up like a flea market, although there are nicer stores/boutiques with bridal gowns/prom dresses and expensive clothing. I suppose there is a little bit of something for everyone! I would suggest... More

This place was recommended by a local merchant after a successful bridal gown purchase. It is cleverly decorated and offered a great view of the busy shops & vendors. But the service and food were mediocre. We wanted a place to rest our feet, but next time will probably eat with the street vendors.

I suggest not going weekends if you can help it.. find a car park for $5 for day and walk.. many of the wholesale places will sell to you even if a notice on their door says they do not ,always ask.. it is more alive in weekends but can be a crush... Look at the craft and material area,... More

This place is so much fun! Tons of alleys and stores! Suit shops, after 5 dresses, jewelry, purses and shoes! It can take all day to shop. Go early because they close around 5 and lots of places to pay and park.

We strolled the L.A. Fashion district and there are too many shops to count. It was a nice visit but not my kind of shopping. There were definitely a lot of bargains and plenty of fabric and yarns everywhere.

If you are looking for fashion then this is not the place to come. The stuff that is sold here is knock offs and cheap quality stuff. The area is not so great as well and can be somewhat dangerous at times. You have to pay to park and unless you are looking for fabric I would advise you to... More

We took a bus tour and this was our first stop I thought it would be more interesting but it was not. Yes they have fabric every where and the only stores I found good was the main jewelry center but would not trust what they were selling unless you have an expert with you. Their prices were so high... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
