Garment District VS Bushwick
We've been focusing on the retail store here , and are watching the walls go up in our new space . This is a new experience for us , having a retail store front to represent ourselves . Currently we are located on the fourth floor of the building we're in , with a showroom / office space . With the move to Brooklyn we will be directly on the street in a storefront location . Which will certainly be different than the current "By Appointment Only" environment we have now ! The appointment based atelier shop was an appropriate adaptation to our location in Midtown Manhattan . But this new location on Varet Street and Bogart Street is a polar opposite of the present Midtown location . A space with direct access to the street is the ideal vehicle for us on Varet and Bogart in Brooklyn . The streets here vibrate with color , sunlight and energy that permeates the area . So unlike the shadowed corridors of Midtown , that lack vibrancy and creativity . The street side walls of these industrial buildings have been transformed into large scale canvases for street art . The connective walls and fences are like unrolled scrolls displaying illustrated stories . The area is a visual explosion of structure's turned into art installations . I do not think that we will be looking back after the move is complete .
