This is an event indie nuts will love. This is a message from Adjowah Brodie of the Weekend Store (and pardon the direct copy and paste reposting, but I’m on a deadline…grrr…no time to be creative):
Join the Porcelynne Designer Collective this Saturday, September 22 at Porcelynne, 487 14th Street @ Guerrero, San Francisco, to celebrate our newly formed Co Op!
The Porcelynne Story
After a year and a half in business as Porcelynne Boutique and Gallery, owner/lingerie designer Jennifer Lynne transforms her boutique into a designer cooperative. Eleven Bay Area designers are directly involved in the boutique, and with offerings ranging from jewelry to menswear, the boutique now covers the whole spectrum. Metalsmith Shana Astrachan was the first to join forces with Porcelynne. Her line ranges from fun sequin accessories to hand forged fine silver. The original team of Shana and Jennifer interviewed dozens of independent designers to find the perfect fit for the boutique.
Adjowah Brodie of The Weekend Store, Anne Cramer of Anicka and Colleen Mauer round out the jewelry designers, and with their wide range of styles, prices and mediums, there is something for everyone.
Designers Yugala Priti and Estrella Tadeo, formerly of the boutique 3 Threads, joined Porcelynne as two of the clothing designers. Yugala adds a versatile line for women to the mix, while Estrella designs a structured look for men. Erin Mahoney’s tango dresses are also a must have addition to the group.
Newcomer Giovanni Adame, designer of Architect G, creates unique and one of a kind mens hoodies and loungewear. Presently, these designs are exclusive and only available at Porcelynne.
Helene Poulshock, Culture Consumer, creates small runs of screen printed designs on not your ordinary tees. Rounding out the boutique collection, designer Chloe Kay brings in her stylish handbags in leather and wool.
As well as the 11 participating designers, Porcelynne also carries the lines of Distilled Spirits, eVarize, Donna Lou and Amy Cools. There is always something new in house, so stop by often to see what’s new – we all take turns working in the shop, so you can meet your favorite designers as well!
This Saturday, Porcelynne celebrates its grand re-opening as a co-op from 6pm to 10pm. All items in the store will be 10% off for this day only. Come out and meet the designers and support the newest addition to the cooperative scene.
