If you want to show your love for New York startups with your wallet, a new opportunity launches today.
It is designed to serve not only as place where you can shop for goods and services from the various brands, but also as a symbol of Silicon Alley innovation.
“The idea was that there are all of these great startups based in Silicon Alley, but we’ve also got backers from Silicon Valley and people may not realize we’re in New York,” said Sharon Klapka, Adore Me’s vice president of business and brand development, and chairperson behind New York Hearts Tech.
New York is arguably the natural capital for fashion, beauty and lifestyle technology startups, building upon the Big Apple's legacy as the fashion capital of the world (yes, ahead of Paris, Milan, and London), not to mention New York's role in the media, advertising and publishing industries too. Just to focus on fashion for a moment: according to the Fashion NYC 2020 report issued in 2015 by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) approximately 900 fashion companies are headquartered in New York City and the city is the largest retail market in the country, generating more than $15 billion in annual sales. New York City's fashion industry pays nearly $11 billion in wages and generates almost $2 billion in tax revenue each year. Then there is buzz and glamour of the runway and industry galas: trade shows, showrooms, and fashion shows attract more than half a million visitors annually to New York City.
Adore Me, the fast-growing e-commerce site for lingerie, is holding a pop-up event in Manhattan this week and it’s more than a drill for something the brand might do: it is definitely planning to get into brick-and-mortar.
Sharon Klapka, vice president of business and brand development for the Manhattan-based company, says that the company is working on a brick-and-mortar plan and the first store will be in its home city, although she could not share specifics just yet.
Lingerie shopping doesn't have to be a hellish experience with high school girls pushing push-up bras at the mall or lifer department store saleswomen with measuring tapes and dated taste. No, not when we have the internet, which is full of ways to find your perfect fit, both physically and stylistically.
Here we've rounded up 20 of the very best places to hunt down your next everyday bra or show-stopping investment piece, just in time for V-Day. A range of prices and styles are represented, as are fit needs (including extended sizes, half cups, maternity, and post-op).
Talk about a tease.
Adore Me, the lingerie e-tailor billing itself as the next Victoria’s Secret, is opening its first pop-up shop — but the big event is only for the press and a few select customers, The Post’s Lisa Fickenscher reports.
Walking through your favorite stores around Valentine’s Day means an onslaught of boxes of chocolates, sentimental greeting cards and so many bouquets of roses you almost feel like you’re in the Queen of Hearts’s garden. While the holiday of love is known for spoiling your boo with romantic gifts, it’s also about treating yourself and picking up some lovely new lingerie. The perfect underthing is just what you need to feel a little extra special, and it doesn’t hurt if your S.O. enjoys it too (rawr). We scoured your fave shops to find the 17 prettiest lingerie pieces out there so you can rock V-day and feel sexy inside and out.
Like so many grad students, Morgan Hermand-Waiche had champagne taste and a beer budget. Or rather, La Perla taste and a Fruit of the Loom budget.
In 2009, Mr. Hermand-Waiche was attending Harvard Business School and dating a fellow student. For their anniversary, he wanted to impress her with a gift of fine lingerie.
CLICKS TO BRICKS: Online lingerie retailer Adore Me is planning a three-day pop-up to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
This will be the online’s store’s first physical retail push. For three days, Adore Me will take over the Hudson Hotel’s penthouse suite and turn it into a Valentine’s Day-themed store. The store will incorporate the brand’s style quiz along with a customized and personalized showroom.
If there's one thing we love about Valentine's Day (other than the chocolate, of course), it's the lingerie.
Yes, we're a little bit obsessed with pretty little underthings and Feb. 14 is a great excuse to splurge on sexy negligees adorned with delicate lace details, daring mesh panels and more.
When Morgan Hermand-Waiche, then a broke MBA student, was trying to buy lingerie as a birthday gift for his girlfriend, he realized that all the high-quality items were far beyond his budget and cheaper items were outdated. “It was time to shake up the lingerie industry, lower its prices, speed up its fashion, and make it accessible to everybody,” says Hermand-Waiche.
