May 19, 2016 Coral Forest art installation debuts in the Fashion District Follow us on Instagram to see more photos of the Coral Forest art installation! @lafashiondist #CoralForest Art in Downtown L.A. is about to get a lot BIGGER! The LA Fashion District is excited to announce the official debut of the Coral Forest art installation, an interactive art piece by Los Angeles-based artist Doron Gazit. The Coral Forest art installation is composed of 10 separate larger-than-life-size pieces that can be reconfigured and displayed in various ways. The inflatable art piece uses air as a medium and explores how people interact with the element. The public is invited to walk through, touch, and take selfies with the art. View Coral Forest every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at THE WALL Farmer’s Market, located on Wall Street between 7th and 8th Streets in Downtown L. A. The installation will be set up in front of the So Cal Flower Market at 755 Wall St. Doron Gazit is an environmental artist and industrial designer who focuses his art on air, line, and color. He has done art installations internationally and is based out of Los Angeles. His work has been featured everywhere from the New York Convention Center to the Dead Sea. Learn more about the artist and his work on July 14, 2016 during Downtown Art Walk. Gazit will be speaking about his work and inspiration for Coral Forest at Preux & Proper, where the art installation will also be displayed. The piece was commissioned by the LA Fashion District Business Improvement District (BID) and curated by Carmen Zella as part of the Fashion District’s space activation initiative. Our goal is to take underutilized and/or less trafficked areas of the LA Fashion District and use art and culture to bring the community together around these spaces. By doing so, we hope to illustrate the full-potential of these streets and what a truly vibrant Downtown L.A. community looks like. The Coral Forest art installation is a mobile art piece and will be installed at various locations throughout the LA Fashion District this summer. See our previous space activation projects here and here. Follow us on Instagram to see more photos! @lafashiondist #CoralForest Please Note: Coral Forest will not be on display in the event of rain or inclement weather. The piece will be on display at the farmer’s market indefinitely.

La Flower District

The LA Fashion District encompasses the 6-block area of Downtown Los Angeles that is known as the LA Flower District, home to the country’s largest flower market and hundreds of independent flower vendors. Here you’ll find the freshest and most extensive selection of fresh-cut flowers, arrangements, bouquets, potted plants, and floral supplies. Wholesale vendors are open to the public, which means shoppers can save up to 70% off retail prices.

We are the Los Angeles area’s premiere wholesale flower market resource for flower growers, shippers, suppliers, floral wholesalers, distributors, floral designers, event planners and retail florists. Located on Wall Street between 7th and 8th streets, the Flower District and Los Angeles flower markets* welcome both the floral trade and the public.

In 1912, when Japanese American farmers opened the market in another location nearby, the industry was dominated by California flower growers. In the following decades, the Southern California Flower Market and the competing Los Angeles Flower Market dominated the wholesale business in the region.

Products at the flower market are sold in bulk, so you are getting much better pricing than you would if you walked into a flower shop. The (possible) downside is you have to meet certain minimums + can’t buy by the stem. For garden roses, the minimum is 12, but for some other types, you might be able to order a bunch of five.

“Ultimately, we want to stay in downtown Los Angeles,” said Scott Yamabe, the market’s executive vice president. “Our objective is to improve the area and maintain the Flower Market.”

At the base of the tower would be shops and restaurants that would spill out onto a paseo connecting to the other Flower Market building, which will be renovated. There, flowers would be sold on the ground floor, and creative offices on the second story could be leased to technology firms and others.

“The Flower Market is a city of Los Angeles institution, but they face challenges,” Coca said. “We are taking the lead on this because these kind of applications often get bogged down in bureaucratic malaise, and we want to make sure that this has the proper public review, while not taking any more time than necessary.”

Yamabe said the Flower Market’s problems stem from the age of its structures, one built in the 1960s, the other in the 1980s. Problems include outdated refrigeration systems and freight elevators. “Unfortunately our buildings are so obsolete, we are spending tons of money maintaining them,” he said.

“The imports started showing up and bypassed the flower market. In the old days when 100% of flowers were California grown, everyone came here because there were no alternatives,” Yamabe said.

Kasey Cronquist, chief executive of the California Cut Flower Commission, said imports surged after 1991. That’s when the U.S. enacted a trade pact that made it cheaper for flowers to be imported from a handful of South American countries, including Colombia, in the hopes of supporting industries other than drug production.

GWS Tip #6: Set a budget ahead of time. We think the easiest thing to do is shop with cash. Most vendors prefer cash anyway (and a few don’t accept credit cards or have minimums) and this allows you to control how much you spend overall. Believe us, it’s easy to get caught up in the beauty around you, so for all of our fellow flower lovers who might come home with way more than you need, make sure to plan ahead!

GWS Tip #7: Shop for floral supplies at the flower mart. Aside from fresh cut blooms, you can purchase clippers, foam, floral tape, vessels, votives and more at great prices. We also saw a ton of amazing decor items, like branches + tree stumps that you can mix with flowers + incorporate into your wedding design!

GWS Tip #10: Once you get home, make sure to unpack + prep all of your flowers right away. Almost every item sold at the flower market is unprocessed, so you will need to remove excess leaves + give the stems a fresh cut before placing them in water. And keep your blooms in the darkest + coolest place you can think of, as sunlight and heat will cause flowers to open prematurely or wilt.

From my own experience, I second what Heather said: know how long it will take! To be on the safe side, be conservative when estimating the time it will take to DIY your own flowers. GM Floral in the LA Flower Market has an amazing selection of supplies like ribbon and pretty containers. (Think of Michaels, only WAY better.)
