History[edit] Fashion District, Pico & Santee The Los Angeles garment industry was established early in the 20th century, and grew substantially in the 1920s and 1930s.[4] In the 1950s, the area became a center for sportswear and women's clothing, partly with the contributions of Jewish entrepreneurs who had moved to the area from New York City.[5] Sephardic Jews from North Africa and France entered the area's garment trade in the 1970s; followed by Persian Jews fleeing the 1979 Islamic Revolution; and then Korean immigrants who first emigrated from South Korea to Brazil, where they had operated fashion businesses.[5][6] By 2000, the area's textile trade was dominated by Middle Easterners (including Iranians and Israelis) and North Africans, followed by Koreans.[5] As of 2015, at least a third of the businesses were Korean, according to the Korean American Apparel Manufacturers Association.[7] The garment district’s evolution to include retailing in addition to manufacturing and wholesale sales, began in the Santee Alley. An alley that serviced the back doors of manufacturing and wholesale businesses, these businesses would open retail outlets out their back doors for one or two days a week. These retail operations grew into full-time businesses along four blocks and transformed the alley into a bazaar.[8] In 1995, a group of business owners in the Garment District established a business improvement district to improve the neighborhood.[9] In 1996 the new group formally changed the name of the Garment District to the Los Angeles Fashion District.[10] At the time, the Garment District consisted of 56 blocks.[9]

Santee Alley[edit] Santee Alley is a heavily populated shopping path in the Fashion District between Maple and Santee Streets, stretching from Olympic Boulevard to Pico Boulevard. Counterfeit goods have been sold in Santee Alley.[11] Similarly, the alley is also known for its illegal trade in live animals, which has been criticized by animal rights activists as cruel.[12] At times the LAPD has raided the alley to arrest counterfeiters. During a two-day raid in 2006, authorities seized $18.4 million worth of counterfeit designer brand merchandise from two downtown locations. On May 23, 2006, police raided a swap meet located at 500 South Los Angeles Street and found fake Tiffany jewelry worth about $6.4 million and arrested two adults. On May 24, 2006, police also raided and seized 12 million worth of counterfeit handbags, clothes, sunglasses, shoes and wallets on Santee Alley between 12th Street and Olympic Boulevard.[13]
