Boston Fashion Week: Oficio Fashion Bazaar

On Saturday a pop-up shop of local designers and sellers was hosted at the offices of Oficio, a company that leases temporary workspace from desks to offices.  The Fashion Bazaar was heavy on jewelry designers, the best of which I thought were:

There were also a few artisans who specialize in revamping clothing and textiles, a good way to give new life to a beloved item that has seen better days.  This one takes custom orders:

Pat Curran/W.I.M. Whatever I Make

I spoke briefly to Eujin Kim Neilan of Uni-T about her fun shirts and accessories made from organic cotton and bamboo.  I loved the owl and ninja prints.  The items are made in China but she assured me that the factory in which they are made is certified with a U.S. organization for environmental and ethical practices.  She sells her items through an Etsy store and at the Natick Mall.  I bought the short-sleeve Ninja t-shirt in the color “dirty purple”.

I also spoke with Allee Graziano representing Schuch Box which is a new company that aims to be a Birchbox-like monthly subscription service.  She caught my attention with the free sample of Magic Moon Soap, a relatively new Salem-based company using organic goat’s milk in their products.  She explained to me that Schuch box would like to include locally-made products in their boxes.  As I am looking for a way to kick my Birchbox habit, I went to the company website and signed up but I think they must have to contact you because there was no payment procedure or email confirmation.  Stay tuned.
