Located on Sawtelle Boulevard, Black Market LA has become quite popular to local UCLA students and Generation Y.  In operation since 2000, the shop has evolved from being a high-end vintage shop to what it has become today – street wear that has a strong following in the LA marketplace.  It transformed in the way that it has in order to better reflect current customer demands and style trends in the area.  In addition, the market has been able to build up its store inventory.  Today it proudly carries several hundred coveted fashionable brands.  The market boasts for offering an incredible selection of kawaii that includes everything from limited edition T-shirts, household novelty items to adorable Snoopy collection.  A huge draw to the shop of course are the trendy clothing for both men and women that fill the racks beside funky jewelry and lifestyle shoes from modern brands such as Tom’s and Dolce Vita.

Owner Jisook Lee has been able to take full advantage of having her shop in the Sawtelle neighborhood.  Lee has easily been able to mix art with fashion.  In addition, it is evident that the shop is heavily influenced by the current Asian trendy styles.  The shop carefully designs its window displays and this would most certainly impress the most seasoned art curator.  They are a must see.  In essence, the shop really has gotten it right, offering its clientele a unique perspective on what a lifestyle boutique should be.
