Westfield Fashion Square, formerly Sherman Oaks Fashion Square, is a shopping mall in the Sherman Oaks area of Los Angeles, California and Van Nuys, Los Angeles. It is owned by Westfield Group. Its anchor stores are Bloomingdale's and Macy's.

Originally anchored by Bullock's from 1962, Sherman Oaks Fashion Square added The Broadway, and I. Magnin department stores in 1975. From 1988-1990, the outdoor mall was enclosed and double-decked with a Mediterranean theme. In 1994, the mall suffered serious damage from the Northridge earthquake. In 1996 Bullock's was converted into Macy's. The Broadway later became Bloomingdale's--the result of Federated Department Stores buying out Carter Hawley Hale Stores, parent company of The Broadway. The Westfield Group acquired a half-interest in the shopping center in 2002, and renamed it "Westfield Shoppingtown Fashion Square", dropping the "Shoppingtown" name in June 2005.[1]

Westfield Fashion Square underwent another major renovation in 2013 creating a more cosmopolitan look and an upgraded food court.[citation needed]

Westfield Fashion Square has been featured in many television and film productions including Malcolm in the Middle, The Office, Clueless and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.[citation needed]
