Last night, Fashionista.com hosted a panel of New York based designers and retailers who spoke about their entry into the fashion industry, and how theyre surviving. Rebecca Minkoff was like the class president shes come along way since interning and she announced last night that shes actively looking for a space for her own store.
We have the clothes and shoes and the bags so were ready. But it wont just be my stufftherell be things I love that I find on my travels, she explained. Its very exciting for me because I get to be a buyer now!
Based on the widespread popularity of her bags wed peg her for the Soho or West Village type, but like pointed out last night, she likes to do things differently. (She used to go on the Purse Forum years ago, before blogs were a blip on anyones radar, and interact with her customers.) So well be keeping our eyes peeled in the East Village, or even Brooklyn.
