“Changing and not for the better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

If I had written this in 2011 I would have given the review an extra star , since my last visit some of the units have now swapped over to very high end fashion/accessories/shoes. How many branches of Loui Vuitton does a city need ? The Hermes store is gorgeous but like the other stores seemed to lack the lifeblood of any emporium - cistomers.
There are still many interesting design / furniture stores and if you are interested design it's still worth visting I just think the small avenue of expensive fashion stores is a mistake.

“It was cool once...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I am baffles as to how the Design District has changed over the last few years. When I first started shopping it a few years ago, it was so unique and personable. The shops were aesthetic and many were run by local proprietors. Many of my old haunts have closed, and it's becoming a bland, universally recognized playground for people with more money than sense. Corporations decimate local integrity....a blight worse than lack of development. IMHO

“Fashion District”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Great deals on fashionable clothing 1 of kind pieces. It was great to walk to individual stores unlike the mall. Some items were bulk. We were able to witness distributors & how they negotiate prices to stock their stores interesting!

“Where is everybody?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Lived in MIA for 5 years now. Maybe it's because I'm originally from NYC that I don't get this place. It's nice to drive/walk through for a minute, but for being an arts/culture-hipster-zone-ish area it's a ghost town. Yawn.
