Wish You Were Here: London, New York Swap

Not sure if you've heard but this fall 30 boutiques in the Lower East Side, NYC will be trading places with boutiques from Newburgh Quarter, London for a limited time. Participants in NYC include brands Blaqua, Beyond the Valley, Chateau Roux, Concrete, The Face, Cowshed, Fred Perry, The Great Frog, Twenty8Twelve, Savage London, Social Suicide, Dolly Dare and more. If you're a bit of an Anglophile like me this could be dangerous :).

This Saturday (Aug 29) between 2-6pm, there will also be a London/LES Fashion Show + Ladies Lotto Block Party featuring designs in three categories: Eco & Vintage, London Looks from the ‘Wish You Were Here’ pop-up, and looks from multi-generational boutiques & new designers. The event will also include live sets from London DJs, Local Business Discount Day, and events from the Ladies Lotto Block Party. The Fashion Show will be held in the Municipal Parking Lot – Broome St. between Ludlow St. and Essex St.
