RETAILER SPOTLIGHT: LINE AND LABEL

What inspires your vision and identity for the store?

I am totally inspired by music, art and fashion - especially NYC in the late 1970's. Icons like Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hyde, musicians like Patti Smith and the New York Dolls - I love the energy and glamorous grit.

What is your favorite aspect of being a retailer?

I love my customers! It is something I never thought of too much when I decided I was going to open the shop - but I have met some truly amazing and inspiring people! It has brought some fun collaborations my way too!

What is your favorite category to buy and where do you do most of your buying?

LOVE buying jewelry - rings especially! I think I love picking out jewelry so much because it's one thing I don't make.

I do most of my buying in NYC, at trade shows, showrooms and from independent designers. I also go to Paris once or twice a year to check out what is going on.

What is the most unexpected thing about you?

That I've googled "Can you be addicted to cheese?" Haha! The answer is yes, incase you are wondering...
