BOUTIQUE CRITIQUE :: A. Turen : Look 3

Edited by

For Ashley Turen, owning a shop runs in her blood. She tells us, “My grandmother had an incredible store in Alabama. I fell in love with the art and creative freedom of having your own shop. I wanted to open a shop that represented my dream one stop shop.” She recently moved to this new space on Stanton Street from just a few blocks away on Ludlow to make room for shop in the one stop. “My old space was very small, and mainly housed my line, and some jewelry. This store has men’s, women’s, shoes, accessories, lifestyle products, all under one roof.”

Boutique Critique:: The Reformation NYC: Look 5

Edited by

The Reformation, named for both Martin Luther’s Reformation to a simpler approach, and for the concept of reforming vintage clothes, is a favorite among reformed shoppers like Leighton Meester, Emma Roberts, and Shenae Grimes. Their reasons for shopping The Reformation on the regular could be its low environmental impact from only using vintage clothing and dead stock fabric, or the one-of-a-kind quality of it being made by hand in-house, or the sexy effects of lace, washed silk, breezy prints and zippers. All of those points and more have driven Fashion Indie to it, making this week’s Boutique Critique sustainably sexy.
