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.

The stores here have a wide selection of wedding dresses, personally did not find "the one" yet but I will most likely be back to browse again. I cannot believe how inexpensive it can be to buy a dress here! A few of the dresses that I did like were between $150-$250! And the ladies working are more than willing... More

I've been hitting the alley's and fashion district for over 20 years. There used to be great finds, but now it is all junk! So not worth it. The service is horrible, parking sucks, there are no public bathrooms and everything is cheaply made. The only place I do recommend is the fabric shops like Michael Levine. The selection is... More

Hi there, We're sorry you had a disappointing experience. We're not sure what part of the district you visited but we suggest visiting the stores on Pico Blvd. between Los Angeles and Santee St. for higher quality items. We also have sample sales on the last Friday of every month where you can find designer goods at or below wholesale... More

Found lots of cheap clothes, purses, shoes, and prom dresses as well as lots of fabric stores and children's clothes. Had a hard time finding better quality fashionable clothes such as what you would find in Nordstrom or Saks. Did find one good store, Vertigo that had great clothes for a trendy office environment!

We've never been to the district, so we thought we'd give it a try. We were there the weekend after Christmas. There are blocks and blocks of stores, and then more blocks. Santee Alley is an experience in itself - get there early to enjoy the shopping, otherwise you will be in a crush of people. In my opinion -... More
