About Unique LA
UNIQUE LA is an exciting two-day shopping event that showcases fresh, hand-selected design talent.
With no ‘middle man’ you’ll shop directly from the designers themselves, which means prices
will be less then retail yet they actually make more profit. It’s a win-win for everyone!
More important, UNIQUE LA is truly about fostering and growing LA’s great community and bringing attention to the Made in America movement.
