The Los Angeles Fashion District is a design, warehouse, and distribution nexus of the clothing, accessories and fabric industry in Downtown Los Angeles. The Fashion District spans 90 blocks and is the hub of the apparel industry on the West Coast of the United States.

Thousands of fast-fashion wholesale vendors line the streets of the Los Angeles Fashion District. Fast-fashion vendors stock the most recent fashion trends straight from the catwalk.

Clothing companies that manufacture in the Fashion District include American Apparel and Andrew Christian.

In March and October, the district is recognized for Los Angeles Fashion Week. Crowds. Celebrities, designers, media, guests, and VIP’s from all over the country come to sneak the first peek at new collections and trends. The LA Fashion Magazine highlights new designers, trend reports, fashion news, collections, and photos straight from the catwalk during fashion week.

The District is also home to the Los Angeles Flower District and Santee Alley, the downtown open air bazaar.

Designer showrooms and wholesale businesses are trade-only, but the district is open to the public, specifically Santee Alley and businesses in the surrounding area. Many businesses on the west side of the district are open to the public on the last Friday of the month for sample sales.
