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.

I took a Carnival cruise for Christmas, I needed an additional bag for the extras I was taking back home. My daughter and I come to the District from Arizona about twice a year. Wholesale items of every kind. I purchased purses for $10.00 per purse and a suit case for $12.00, it was not Samsonite, but it was not... More

This is a very disappointing "fashion district". You might expect that being in LA, it would be something fancy. Not at all. It's like a piece of México in LA. Quite an experience.

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.

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.
