Storefront Report ECHO PARK –– The boutique-ification of Echo Park continues with the opening this week of a small but glittering showroom for clothing designer Eva Franco.

Franco, who recently moved from Echo Park to Mount Washington, has been working for several months to renovate the Echo Park Avenue storefront on the ground floor of the apartment building that also houses Chango coffee, Lucas hair salon and other shops. Franco’s clothing line is sold in more than 800 shops but this is her first store.

“After 12 years in business, it’s so exciting for us to showcase our brand in our own brick-and-mortar store,” said Franco via email. An opening celebration is planned for Thursday, Nov. 6.


  1. Welcome. Nice looking store! Much success to you.

  2. The old Flounce space? Hope she’s got flood insurance.

  3. Welcome to EP Ave!

  4. Seriously gross!

  5. All her clothes are made in LA, not overseas which means she employs folks right here in our city. She is an immigrant from Romania and her designs are gorgeous. I’m a teacher and doubt I can afford her designs, but love her style and welcome her to Echo Park.

  6. Aw man, I was hoping for a coffee shop, hair salon or chachki shop. oh well.

  7. Great looking store ! welcome

  8. This type of boutique seems more appropriate on West Third Street, not Echo Park.

  9. Echo Park Kinney
    Echo Park-rose
    Echo Park Plaza
    Echo Park-wood

    High rents, shameless flippers

    Echo Park is and has been done.
