The beginnings of a bright idea: 1. Gather together clothing, jewelry and handbag designers early in their careers. 2. Showcase the work in an indoor, casual, flea market-like environment.
The Market NYC, 268 Mulberry [Houston/Prince], is open every Saturday from 11am-7pm. The clothes are very, how-you-say, fashion-forward and geared to the designers' contemporaries (young). More designers and a broader range of styles would help. But it's a good concept and worth a look.
