Fashion Police: NYC Anti Counterfeit Bill will Arrest You for Buying Fake

Edited by

The devil doesn’t wear Prada. The devil wears fake Prada. Counterfeiting in the fashion industry accounts for over $250 billion in losses for businesses, not to mention drug trafficking, terrorism and the most despicable labor conditions on the planet. Harper’s Bazaar and the City of New York are both taking action against this heinous smirch on fashion.

Boutique Critique:: AvaMaria: Look 1

Edited by

AvaMaria is tucked away along the cobblestones of Crosby St just So. of Ho. Inside you’ll find a load of Louboutins and Choos and DVF wraps next to relative unknowns that will soon circulate your wardrobe. Store owner, and former professional ballroom dancer, Katherine Virketiene’s buying philosophy lies in that when you buy something one season, you’re going to have it forever. Therefore, she doesn’t always scramble to get the very newest in Ava Maria, much of her energy goes to finding the best never-before-worn pieces from recent seasons past, and sells them a discount.

There are infinite ways to wind up in Court, but you’ve got to be pretty smart to get out of there guilt-free. Thankfully store owners Lisa and Nicole have stocked the store with highly logical pieces. Including this multi-funktional five-way “skirt”, and a dress I bought from them a while back by Something Else that zips everywhere. Court is brimming with gems like these.

Now you have even more of a reason to go to Court: 15% off when you mention FashionIndie!

Boutique Critique:: Court: Look 2

Edited by

This Court room is a treasure trove of layers. Especially with the majority of pieces being shades of black and white, the garments are merchandised to live with one another, complementing and interchanging. I clothe myself by the philosophy of layering, so to have selected a dress, a single solitary layer of clothing for Look Two, you know this dress must be super fascinating.

Boutique Critique:: Court: Look 1

Edited by

Boutique Critique was taken to Court. I can’t get into the specifics of the arrest, but I will fiercely deny any allegations that it involved Rebecca Black and a finely sharpened object last Friday… Well, the trial ensues upon the lacquered black floor of the Court room, with a film noir NY color palette and western-leaning-California vibes; highly suspect if you ask me. Reimagined t-shirts of many weights and structures intersperse silken black dresses, leathers, sweaters and the occasional floor length chiffon. Though the case appeared to be rather black and white, shades of gray and few jumping hues peeked through as evidence of the brighter buying choices. The jury has been out for the whole week, and they want more proof. Over the course of this week, come sit in on the trial, and help us reach a final verdict.

Guilty of lusting after that jacket? Mention FashionIndie and get 15% off everything on the Court room floor.

Boutique Critique:: Début: Look 1

Edited by

Tucked away on the north end of Mulberry Street, just above Houston, lives a petite boutique lined with the freshest names in design. Début is sparsely arranged to feel like a gallery, built to give each designer a proper artist’s display. Storeowner Lisa Weiss frequently hears from new customers, I’ve passed by it so many times and just never came in! I wasn’t entirely sure it was a store. Let her hear that no more. This incredible little-known and selectively merchandised store sparked my desire to explore the best boutiques in New York, and take you shopping with me. Piece by piece. Designer by designer. Through five original looks. One look each day. Every week. From now on. This is the Début of Boutique Critique.
