After weeks of preparation and anticipation, the Young & Able team hosted their very first pop-up shop of 2014 at the Textile Arts Center on Friday, Jan. 17. Though doors were not officially scheduled to open until 6:30, a handful of eager shoppers arrived much earlier than expected. By 7 p.m., the shop was brimming with fashion enthusiasts as they browsed the YNA collections and mingled with some of the in-house designers who were present. Over the next few hours, YNA's founder, Rosa Ng, met with a slew of customers, budding designers and members of the press to discuss her concept and her plans for the future with YNA. In addition to sampling and/or purchasing goods, guests were served an array of refreshments and delivered their best poses at YNA's photobooth station.
The shop's Greenwich Village address served as the perfect backdrop as it piqued the interest of more weekend shoppers and neighborhood passersby the following day.
"The shop was very nicely curated," said Brooklyn resident and fashionista Barbie Bertisch (whose closet, we hear, is worthy of envy). "It had the right amount of pieces and it seemed to me that it definitely told a story. It was almost as if every necklace, shirt or knit was a part of a really cool, environmentally-conscious puzzle."
