A new shop sells clothes made right in NYC
It?s no surprise that the locavore trend has changed the way we shop for groceries. So why not apply the same approach to our wardrobes? The new Nolita boutique Black + Graze makes it easy to do just that.
Fashion designer Caycee Black and vintage collector Jennifer Volodarsky (of the e-commerce blog Nudes & Graze) took their passion for the ethical production of clothing and created a supremely stylish environment where New York women can buy pieces that have been cut and sewn locally--many right here in the Garment District.
The intimate, well-curated shop is largely centered around made-to-order items, meaning you can choose a sample silhouette (from the likes of Caycee Black or Dessu), and Black and Volodarsky will have it produced to your exact measurements. Black?s own line is even interchangeable among a variety of printed fabrics (based on artwork she painted herself), so you can mix and match textiles as well.
Peppered in the mix is Volodarsky?s ultra-wearable vintage collection (always a responsible buy) and a rotating array of off-the-rack but locally produced lines (like Alexandra Grecco) to help you style outfits that feel as good as upstate apples taste.
