Our second show saw SHOPPE OBJECT vendors spread across two dynamic venues with energies all their own. We doubled in size and more than two hundred vendors experienced traffic made up of the best retailers from around the world on the hunt for amazing new product over three days. From live drawing to an amazing after party, we set the bar high for our second show and exceeded all of our expectations.
New York based illustrator Carlos Aponte finds inspiration in the daily interactions of people, places, and all of the moments that bind them. Admired for his work in the world of fashion and home, his sketchbooks are too numerous to count, and represent an ongoing visual diary that goes back more that 20 years. A professor at Parsons and a friend to the design community, this project represents a visual diary of Shoppe Object 2.0.
A dual-city fine art collaborative of sisters Laura Naples and Kristen Giorgi, NG Collective are the selected artists for our second season.
Optimism and enthusiasm outweighed the torrential rain that struck the morning of the first day of the first ever Shoppe Object in August 2018. One hundred inaugural vendors convened on our venue Metropolitan West, for three days of community building and lots of order writing. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the brands and buyers who took a gamble on our independent vision, and we’ll never forget it.
