Looking for some great Spring pieces? From now until Monday April 24th, you can score some of Jill Stuart’s iconic vintage pieces at her Vintage Pop-Up in Nolita.
Jill Stuart is a New York born and raised fashion designer, who has fashion running in her veins. Because her parents managed a well-known ladies’ wear company, her childhood consisted of constant talk of textiles and discussion of design.
So it isn’t a huge surprise that at the age of just 15, she sold her first collection of handbags and jewelry to Bloomingdales. Actually we guess that kind of IS a surprise. I mean at the age of 15 we were selling powdered lemonade out of our red Radio Flyer Wagons…
Later in 1993, she went on to release the Jill Stuart Collection. This featured items like the fashion backpack and plaid skirts. And obviously when we see plaid skirts we think of the classic movie Clueless. Lo and behold, many of Jill Stuart’s designs were actually featured in the movie!
The Pop Up offers a curated mix of boho silhouettes, flirty florals, and glorious chiffon numbers.
The Jill Stuart Vintage Pop-up can be found on 171 Elizabeth Street and is open from 11am-7pm. Happy shopping!
