Desiree Kohan

Tastemaker

In 2005, Desiree Kohan opened her eponymous boutique, Des Kohan, in a nearly century-old warehouse in the good company of cultural landmarks like LACMA, the La Brea Tar Pits, and the El Rey Theatre. “The Miracle Mile is lined with art galleries, and I wanted my clothing store to be a destination with a gallery-like setting as opposed to being located on a typical shopping street,” the trend forecaster says.
