The Chinatown Experiment held their one year anniversary at the shop on September 20th. Yummus Humus owner and TCE co-owner Yashar Nijati (Yash for short) held a pop-up in May, and has since joined the team alongside Devon Mackenzie. They both have not had any fashion experience in particular, but are both strong-business minded individuals who have owned businesses. During their first year, Style by Fire covered Betty Be Good and Charles&Grace and Whiskey Teacup‘s pop up boutiques – and we’re looking forward to many more exciting pop ups to come!
We also met Shannon Heth of Citizen Grace. Their online shop sells everything from local designers to international designers from countries like Australia. Apparently Shannon and I have a very similar taste – we both loved the Mink Pink furry black & white colour-blocked Mink Pink fashion coat. One of the local handmade jewlery brands they carry really stood out for its simple and bold personality: Army of Rokosz. Citizen Grace will be back at The Chinatown Experiment in November. Be sure to check them out then.
