UPDATE at bottom of post!
That's the rumor of the day in Historic Downtown Los Angeles. Fashion designer Ed Hardy, who has some of his facilities upstairs at 433 S. Spring Street in the old Title Insurance Building, is rumored to have inked a deal to take at least one of the two new glass windowed storefronts just being built out in the same building. This increasingly important fashion building next to the Spring Arts Tower at 5th and Spring is helping make 5th and Spring one of the major creative intersections of Los Angeles. To post everything that is now located within one block of that intersection would now take a full day of work so maybe I'll tackle it over the holidays.
UPDATE - There will be an Ed Hardy store, but it will be operating as a licensed store. It will also take both of the large new storefronts that were just built-out and it will be operated by the owner of the building.
