20 Places Where You Can Shop Racked Young Guns In NYC

View as Map

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Last week, we introduced our first-ever selection of Racked Young Guns. After lots of toiling by our selection committee, they narrowed down the list to the top 15 up-and-coming designers. But now comes the important part—where can you shop them?

After the jump, we've mapped out twenty local shopping destinations so you can the designers out for yourself. To keep it manageable, we narrowed it down to who carries the most of our selected designers, as well as places that are just plain cool to shop at.—Laura Gurfein
