Sample Sale Friday in the LA Fashion District

Sample Sale Friday in the LA Fashion District is a favored destination by industry professionals and the public alike. Find out more about this monthly event.

As we approach each final Friday of the month, we can expect the California Market Center building here to be abuzz with bargain shoppers and deal hunters. In what is known as Sample Sale Friday in the LA Fashion District, many of the showrooms open themselves up to the public, selling off their wholesale inventory and sample pieces at a fraction of the price you would pay at a retailer or boutique. If you haven’t yet participated in a Sample Sale Friday in the LA Fashion District, it’s a fun reason to visit. We have a few tips for you.

If there is a specific brand or showroom you are looking to shop, contact the appropriate building to confirm that this store will be participating, as not all showrooms do each month. If the last Friday of the month falls during a market week, you’ll want to double check that it is taking place, as market week generally trumps Sample Sale Friday in the LA Fashion District. (though it is possible for some showrooms to reschedule their sales). Often times, there is not time or space to try garments on. If you are a stickler for fit, wear a fitted tank top and leggings where you can easily slip items over your clothing to get somewhat of an idea. Many of the Sample Sale Friday showrooms only accept cash payments so equip your wallet accordingly.

For the most part, the sales only last from 9AM to 3PM, so you will want to budget your time accordingly. Keep in mind that there are different sales to explore in not only the California Market Center building, but the Cooper Design Space, Gerry Building and New Mart as well. During this 9AM – 3PM time frame you can take advantage of $9 parking in the CMC’s garage. However, why not make a day out of it? When you are done with your shopping, relax and recover at one of DTLA’s exciting urban destinations such as The Classic Coffee or Ace Hotel, or use the time as an opportunity to go check out Please Do Not Enter.
