The LA Fashion District is home to thousands of wholesale showrooms, both designer and cash-and-carry or “fast fashion.” Buyers from all over the world come to Downtown Los Angeles to source merchandise for their stores and boutiques. Traditionally, sourcing had to be done in-person but the internet has changed everything. Now buyers can source merchandise online from wholesale marketplaces, but are they paying a premium for the online services? We partnered with online boutique KyootKlothing.com to find out.
Andrea Sager, owner and buyer for KyootKlothing.com, was planning her first-ever trip to the Fashion District when we connected with her on Twitter. She started her business while in law school (she is still a law student) and had up until then sourced merchandise for her boutique exclusively online. KyootKlothing.com caters to professional women and offers causal and business-casual clothing. Andrea’s goal is to maintain the quality of her products while providing options for women of all shapes, sizes, and budgets.
In her quest to provide the best possible quality and price, Andrea booked a flight to Los Angeles and spent two days researching wholesale pricing and style options in the Fashion District. As part of our partnership she let us tag along to take photos and reported back on her experience. She concluded that wholesale merchandise in the district is in fact more affordable when compared to the major online wholesale marketplaces.
While many of the wholesalers in the LA Fashion District do not have a website, they are still dedicated to building strong relationships with buyers. As Andrea learned throughout the process “there’s no better way to build a relationship than face to face.” Many of the wholesalers encouraged Andrea to call if she saw similar items on other websites, as they would give her a better price. For new buyers, Andrea recommends spending at least two full days in the district, as there is not enough time to see everything the area has to offer in one day!
Insider Tip: Many wholesale LA Fashion District vendors sell online through third-party wholesale marketplaces. The online platform acts as the middle-man between the wholesale vendor and the buyer. When you shop directly from the vendor, it eliminates the middle-man and any of the costs that would have otherwise been incurred in the process.
Additional benefits of buying wholesale in-person include knowing the quality and fit of the product at the time of purchase.

So now we know, making that trip to the Fashion District WILL save you enough money to make that flight worth it!
And for all our first-time business owners, we asked Andrea to share her top 5 tips for starting a fashion business.

*Andrea did most of her sourcing on the eastern side of the district, in the San Pedro Wholesale Mart and surrounding area.
