The Cooper Design Space
: Long, long ago before a city spread far and wide away,
Cooper Design Space was born the Cooper Building. Then as
now at the heart of L.A.'s downtown Fashion District, Cooper
stands 11 tall stories amidst the creative commerce that's
thrived here for nine decades. Cooper's at it again:
stepping up with Fashion District space fitted to L.A.'s
lifestyle Creatives. The building was born in 1927 to suit
L.A.'s fashion designers and manufacturers. During the 40s
and 50s, Cooper refashioned itself to shine as L.A.'s premier
address for fashion industry showrooms – before there was
a California Mart or a New Mart. The Cooper Building pioneered
again during the 80s as one of America's first discount
retail centers, a model for today's outlet malls. And in
the 90s, The Cooper Building anted up for the Fashion District,
working to persuade the L.A. City Council to establish the
city's first Business Improvement District. Today,
renovated as Cooper Design Space, the building at the corner
of 9th and Los Angeles Streets is at it again as home base
for L.A. creatives. The building hosts a space that embraces
cross-pollination among L.A. lifestyle businesses in fashion,
media arts and publishing. A space that encourages fluidity
across functions by offering studio, office and showroom
in a single location.

(CMC) : is the hub of the Los Angeles fashion industry.
