“It was cool once...”
3 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“It had its interest and uniqueness but now it's heading down the wrong track”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

It amazes me how this district has changed in the last years and not in a good way. When I first visited it five years back it was all about architectural design with smaller shops and displays and a few cute restaurants tucked in. Now the feeling is that of being in a sort of Rodeo Drive Corp. mall atmosphere. Now you can find Cartier, Prada, Armani, Fendi etc..even valet parking all over. Sad. The feeling of arts and crafts is long gone and by the massive work in progress construction development it seems it will get worse. It is merely a portal for the usual big brand names and not much more.
