Spain's Zara Opens Urban Fashion Outlet in Los Angeles

Posted: Jun. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Downtown Los Angeles is getting a fashion injection. Spanish designer Zara is opening a 27,000 square foot store in the urban center of downtown, in hopes of making it a dining and shopping hot spot once more. Macy's and Urban Outfitters seem to be following suit and opening up locations nearby, adding more places to hit on a soon plausible LA shopping spree destination.

Spanish retailer Zara is coming to downtown Los Angeles, bringing a dash of fast fashion to a district increasingly pegged as a potential shopping powerhouse.

The 27,000-square-foot store that the trendy chain plans to open in the Figat7th shopping center next spring will be nearly three times the size of some Zara stores.

The retailer is debuting downtown just as the neighborhood — already developing cachet as a culinary destination and residential center — starts to shed its reputation as a fashion desert.

Once home to L.A.'s big-name department stores, downtown steadily lost its place as a shopping destination outside the draw of Garment District discounters and ethnic retailers.
