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.
And they say L.A.’s got no backstory.
