Irvine and the surrounding area offer fashionistas, casual shoppers and people-watchers five retail and lifestyle centers, including three major centers each with their own personality.

A trip to the Center wouldn’t be complete without a visit to their unique shops including; award-winning Australian retailer Lorna Jane, which offers stylish and innovative active wear designed by women, for women;Brandy Melville featuring affordable, bohemian apparel highlighted by oversized, beachy and comfortable styles; and Kaitlyn Clothing offering a current collection of trendy designer brands including Fresh Laundry, True Religion, Juicy, Seven and more.

The California lifestyle is on display at Fashion Island, an open-air mall with an ocean view and more than 150 high-end shops, including specialty boutiques and world-class department stores, over 60 of which are found nowhere else in Orange County including Kate Spade, Jonathan AdlerBloomingdale’s Home Store and Michael Stars. High-end designers Halston Heritage, favored by celebrity style icons such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Kendra Scott, the queen of contemporary statement jewelry, both recently opened their first Orange County boutiques at the center.

Recognized internationally for its unparalleled retail collection, customized concierge services, and critically-acclaimed restaurants including Charlie Palmer at Bloomindale’s, South Coast Plaza is Southern California’s premier shopping experience.
