***Participating Merchants to Host Launch Party
on Thursday, December 4 from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. ***
Washington, DC – The popular “pop-up” holiday bazaar is now open for the festive season in Cady’s Alley. For the second year running, EastBanc and Jamestown are helping to make spirits bright this cheerful time of year by again hosting the original Cady’s Alley Holiday Bazaar running throughSunday, January 4. The pop-up indoor open marketplace features a collection of five up-and-coming online fashion and accessory brands including Pico Vela, Kim Schalk, IKKON, Elaine B Jewelry and STYLECABLE. The 8,000-square-foot split-level holiday emporium is located at 3330 Cady’s Alley, NW in the heart of Georgetown’s Design District.
On December 4 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the pop-up Cady’s Alley Holiday Bazaar merchants will host a launch party for patrons to meet the faces behind the retailers. The event is complimentary and open to the public.
This year’s group of selected retailers showcased in the Cady’s Alley Holiday Bazaar offer a combination of fashionable clothing and accessories for both men and women and includes:
Pico Vela’s beautifully modern sweaters celebrate the creativity, spirit and individuality of women. Each design is hand-loomed by artisans in the USA using natural fibers and custom blended colors. A Pico Vela sweater will become that unique piece in your wardrobe that you will go back to again and again.
Kim Schalk women’s wear is innovative fashion at an unexpected price point. Classically cut silhouettes with a bit of an edge pretty much sums up the design aesthetic of this line. Influences range from a nautilus to the Empire State Building from one piece to the next. But there is always a bit of vintage glamour in every thing that is labored upon.
IKKON maintains one focus: Simple Luxury for the Modern Man. Named one of Details Magazine’s “Best Online Men’s Shopping Sites” in 2013, IKKON is a mecca for everyday menswear. They’ve done all the legwork to bring the best pieces from today’s top men’s designers including OVADIA & SONS, Maison Kitsuné, Rick Owens, all Slowear lines (Zanone, Incotex, Montedoro & Glanshirt), Billy Reid, Hartford, Valentino and more. Launched in the spring of 2012 by the three Pazik sisters from Bethesda, Kara, Kristen, and Marisa have a variety of backgrounds in the fashion industry.
Elaine B. Jewelry is a line of entirely handmade jewelry at McGuffey studios in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. Many of the materials are milled from recycled metals, and all of the design and construction is done by hand in studio. Inspiration helps create tiny sculptural worlds using traditional jewelry materials, incorporating geometric elements to make objects that are light and wearable but have a weighty presence.
STYLECABLE offers a new kind of shopping experience. Carefully curating a selection of classic, yet modern and edgy pieces, STYLECABLE provides a virtual marketplace for emerging designers to showcase their latest collections. It’s an outlet for shoppers to not only discover new designers but also search for that perfect find – delivered straight from the designer’s showroom to your closet.
“The Cady’s Alley Holiday Bazaar provides an opportunity for rising talent to display their unique merchandise and holiday gifts in a showroom setting,” says Philippe Lanier, vice president of EastBanc. “The open market atmosphere provides an opportunity for shoppers to explore something innovative and new and a fresh change from their regular holiday shopping routine.”
The Cady’s Alley Holiday Bazaar hours of operation are: Monday, closed; Tuesday–Thursday, 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.; Friday–Saturday, 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. The Holiday Bazaar will be closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Years Day.
