Downtown Fashion District

As the heart of L.A.’s apparel and textile manufacturing industry, the Fashion District is a dream come true for budget-savvy fashionistas and budding seamstresses. Comprised of several blocks of off-price designer retailers and wholesale fabric stores, it’s the kind of place where the amount of money you save depends on how willing you are to search each store and sales rack. Some shops only offer wholesale prices to the public on certain days, so check the district’s website for details and a good map.
