On Saturday, June 4th, the Epic + Co’s 7th Bi-Annual Trunk Show was held at Shop Studios located at 528 West 39th Street in Manhattan, New York.
Epic + Co’s Founder Latoya Gordon created the shopping experience to where independent designers and entrepreneurs can showcase their latest products and services directly to the public.
The Shop Studios which has a fantastic opens space with a great rooftop proved to be the perfect place for Epic + Co Trunk Show. Unfortunately what started out as a beautiful day, turned into a cloudy and rainy evening. Attendees who were enjoying the rooftop, were forced back inside. No problem, the music was turned up and the Hennessy cocktails were flowing. Guests were even treated to chair massages by the Finger Lakes School of Massage.
The rain presented a greater opportunity for vendors to engage customers inside the Shop Studios. Vendors like Kate Lynn & Adwoa who produce a skin and body care line with all natural products from Ghana; Born Republic Jewelry founded by Juan Pablo Escano who creates pieces that are wearable from the office to a night out; Jinaki designs founded by Sharufa Rashied Walker who was recently selected to participate in the Workshop at Macy’s Class of 2016 and Law Beauty Essentials which boasts their nail polish is 100% Vegan non-toxic and made without 5 harsh chemicals Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.
