Well, at least it's on this island (looking at you, Alexander Wang). Gilded Age will be showing its fall/winter collection tomorrow at 224 Front Street, pictured above—one of the only brands to have a show in the South Street Seaport. The following day, that 950-square-foot space will officially be open for business as the brand's first retail store in New York.
Gilded Age chose that neighborhood because they wanted to be part of the revitalization after Hurricane Sandy. The store will also feature three to four New York artists each month, serving as a platform to jumpstart their careers. This initiative is in partnership with Chashama, a non-profit that supports the city's art community.
