Walking distance from my hotel in downtown LA, this is a couple of blocks packed with shops offering all kinds of clothes and other items. Loads of variety and definitely do bargain! Lots of eateries in the vicinity too. One thing i missed seeing were souvenir shops.

I go here to purchase fabrics in bulk for projects or to find something unique for a smaller project. The selections are vast and the shops are many. So many notions and choices, blends and polys, love to walk for miles just looking at all the possibilities. It's great to come down and make a deal on tights or rhinestones... More

Went to Clade men's clothing store on 6th and Spring st. A small store with very special pieces designed by Maya Reynolds, whose store it is. They are made locally of beautiful fabrics. Very special and unique. A great find in downtown LA.

A great place for fashion shopping! Spent a full day here- a lot of cheap clothes to see/ buy. Most stuff are similar from one seller to another. NOT a place for high end stuff!

This is a cool area to walk around in, but its a very large area and it is hard to know exactly where to go as a first time shopper.

My family of seven went just to see what was there, as my dad sells clothing online. We've never been before. First, it was very crowded (odd for a sunday). Most of the good shops were closed. Like some other reviews said, it was mostly the same thing over and over, but they all sold items at different prices. Huge... More

I come here whenever I am free to shop or sometimes look around for new trending outfits. Majority of the clothes here are very affordable and if you are a fashion addict and like to see what you are buying, come here. This only disadvantage is you have to be extremely patient if you want to buy something very nice.

The corner hot dog stand with the bacon on the hot dog is delicious. It can be a little overwhelming since there are so many bargains.

The place is good to wander around if you are downtown but it is an area for wholesalers and not mainly for retail where you want to buy one or two items, although you might be in luck in a few shops. If you want retail go to a nice mall instead.

We came to the fashion district to find something for my brother and we ended up walking around several blocks just looking at all of the stores. We were able to find what we came to look for and also did some people watching. Unless you are looking for Fabric or dresses then you dont really need to head here.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood 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.
