I am about to open a co-operative style store full of hand-made goods in Astoria, Queens. It all started when I was dropping off some babyNOIR merchandise at KrisTEES. I was telling the owner Kristie that someone should take advantage of the market she developed in that part of Astoria for the past 5 years by providing a beautifully chosen designer fashion in the area. There are many young, hip people in my neighborhood, but they mostly go to Manhattan and Brooklyn to shop. KrisTEES changed that a bit. I told her I would like to open a store in a few years, with babyNOIR and babySOLAIRE along with some complimentary lines. Then, she told me about a little store front available a block from hers. She said, "someone should turn that into a cool boutique."
MSG by Mami Suzuki! The door is to open on November 3rd, and grand opening soiree in the evening of the 5th!
Will keep you posted!
