Melrose Avenue can be broken into four main sections:
From Fairfax Avenue to Highland Avenue | Melrose District became a popular underground and new wave shopping area in the early 1980's. Pioneered by colorful, adventurous, eclectic owners of shops and eateries. It was the epicenter of Southern California's New Wave and Punk cultures. The attention and excitement drew movie stars and the trend-setters and Melrose Avenue was dubbed "The New Rodeo Drive".
From La Cienega Boulevard to Fairfax Avenue | this part of Melrose Avenue houses many of the luxury, upscale high fashion boutiques, and restaurants. Some of them include the Kardashian sister's boutique DASH, Fred Segal, Helmut Lang, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, John Varvatos, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood.
Melrose Avenue found even more notoriety when "Melrose Place", Aaron Spelling's hit television show turned into a hit. Melrose Place is a smaller offshoot of Melrose Avenue.
The intersecting area of Melrose and La Cienega is considered a design center as it is populated by many antique, furniture, home accessory shops, and art galleries.
Since 1997, every Sunday a crowd gathers at the Melrose Trading Post outdoor flea market. On any given Sunday approximately 250+ local vendors and artisans gather with food vendors and live music for entertainment.
