A New Look for the Fashion District
The Fashion District launched a new logo and brand identity inspired by the neighborhood's architecture, colors and community. The new brand seeks to incorporate the district's distinct offerings under five brand pillars that highlight the historic, eclectic, inviting, connected, and fashionable nature of the area. Our goal is to create an inclusive brand that speaks to all the different industries, businesses, and people who shop, work, and live in the Fashion District.
