This location was originally the candy store Sweet Success, when Disney-MGM Studios opened in 1989.
Today, it’s Adrian and Edith’s Head to Toe, which sells custom-embroidered Disney character goods. The store’s name is a tribute to two legendary Hollywood costume designers. Adrian Adolph Greenberg (1903-1959), usually listed in movie credits as “Gowns by Adrian,” had an illustrious career which included designing Dorothy’s Ruby slippers for The Wizard of Oz (MGM, 1939).
Edith Head (1897-1981) was honored by the Motion Picture Academy with 35 nominations and eight Oscars—more Oscars than any other woman. It is speculated that Head was also the inspiration behind the character Edna Mode in Pixar's The Incredibles.
The inspiration for the building is Chapman Park Market Building at 3451 West 6th Street.
The Chapman Park Market was one of the first West Coast markets designed specifically for customers arriving by automobile. Architect Stiles Clements of Morgan, Walls & Clements is responsible for this 1929 Spanish Colonial Revival style complex with extensive Churrigueresque detailing. It now serves Los Angeles’ vibrant Koreatown neighborhood.
Adrian and Edith’s Head to Toe is the place to have just about anything personalized. They sell hats and other small items that you can have done, or you bring your own. It is located on the right side of Hollywood Boulevard, between Celebrity 5 and 10 and L.A. Cinema Storage.
