So about three years ago I discovered Young & Able, a curated online store and seasonal pop-up shop representing emerging brands in fashion jewelry, ceramics, home, beauty and art objects. I knew the brand when it was just starting out so it was great to learn of his temporary space at the Refinery Hotel. This 4th Annual holiday event was celebrating women-owned businesses and connecting artists. In partnership with Pop Up Nation, you can stop in at the pop at Refinery Hotel located 63 W. 38th St will be open until December 31st. (more…)
This past week I attended the Young & Able Presents Series Launch Pop Up Shop Party. Young & Able was founded as an alternative online retail platform featuring small companies and local designers that people love. Series is a month long collaborative pop up space supporting these makers in an offline setting. This marks Young & Able’s first extended brick and mortar shopping experience. With a mission to support emerging designers of all disciplines the designers provide a place to gather and discover unique individuals and products. I fell in love with the sweaters from designer Toy Syndrome. Visit www.shopyoungandable.com and see more of the pieces from these great designers.
