We went there on a Saturday morning and the place was packed with stores. All kinds of things for sale: wedding/party decorations, fabrics, bags, clothes, etc. They are located in their own areas, so first we only saw fabric stores and as we wandered further, came the bag and clothes stores. There’s also a dollar store, where I found lots... More

The reviews were mixed when I read about the LA Fashion District and unfortunately I agree with those which were negative. My partner and I came here in the hope we would find some unique LA fashion for a good price. What we found was an area full of stores which look like either wholesalers (for fabric & costume jewellery)... More

I love to shop! There were so many shops in the Fashion districts, I didn't know where to start. Generally, the apparel is moderately priced and I would advice you allocate at least a day to shop so that you get to have a look in a few more stores than we did.

We had high hopes for the fashion district after having visited some of the expensive malls in LA. Whilst there may be bargains to be had here, it's mostly row upon row of cheap stuff of poor quality.

This place felt like I was at a bigger version of a cheap flea market. I did not see a single thing I wanted to buy. It felt like a complete waste of time to visit this place. It's probably okay if price is your only motivation and you do not care about quality.

Take a day and go to the fashion district. You will not believe the buys you can find. Plus food, drinks and more fun as you can walk miles shopping.

Maybe this place is live on the weekends but wow was it ever ghetto on Tuesday afternoon. Walked out quicker then we did walking toward it. The jewelry district is better.

We stopped by on our way down to Disneyland as we had never been there. This is an attraction all by itself! MY wife and Granddaughter shopped and looked for over 5 hours. Plenty of great bargains and now my wife wants to go back ASAP. Doesn't matter what you are looking for it is there. Also love it that... More

Love this place! Go on a Saturday morning to find the best deals. You will find lots of deals and even designer steals. The prices are always not firm, so try your shot at bargaining. I could spend the whole day here. You will get lost easily because there is just so much!

If you like shopping and great bargains, than this is the place. The Fashion District consists of blocks and blocks of nothing but deals. Some good and some not worth it. But if you are a savvy and patient shopper, you will fine great deals, both generic and name brand. I say, go for it, you want be disappointed.
