We will travel by Metro Gold Line from Pasadena to downtown Los Angeles’ Fashion District. Justine Limpus Parish, Associate Professor at Art Center College of Design will lead us through the area and offer her knowledge and insights about this 100-block district from an insider’s point of view.  Los Angeles has become the clothing-manufacturing center of the U.S., and the Fashion District is its pulsing heart. A cross between New York’s Canal Street and a Middle-Eastern bazaar with a Latin American flair this area is a hub for textiles, apparel for adults and children, accessories, shoes, cosmetics, even fresh flowers, both in the wholesale and retail markets. There will be time to explore the area’s retailers (credit cards are accepted or you can try your hand at bargaining with cash).
