Where to Shop for Prom Dresses:

There are dozens of prom dress stores in the LA Fashion District, most of which are concentrated on Santee Street a from 9th to 14th Streets and Maple Avenue from Olympic Boulevard to 12th Street. (Download a map of the area here).


LA Fashion District prom dress stores are independently owned and operated, but most open between 9 and 10 a.m. and close between 5 and 6 p.m. Prom dress stores are open 7 days a week.

Shopping Tips

  • Search the directory: Looking for a specific style or store? Contact prom dress stores directly using the Fashion District directory.
  • Parking: We recommend parking in a private parking lot. Most parking lots are cash only and rates can vary from $5-15. Please note, all lots are independently owned and operated, and their hours of operation might vary.
  • Return Policies: In general, LA Fashion District prom dress stores in the area tend to have a “final sale” or very short return policy. We highly recommend trying on the dress before making a purchase and taking a second to check seams and embellishment details.
  • Alterations: Most stores will either offer alterations on site or can recommend someone nearby.
  • Pricing: Dress prices vary widely depending on the style of dress. Most dresses are in the $100-300 price range. Heavily beaded dresses will be the most expensive, while simpler designs will be on the lower end.

The best part about shopping for prom dresses at the LA Fashion District is that most of the stores update their collections regularly, meaning there’s always new dresses to shop! The selection of LA Fashion District prom dresses is unparalleled.
