As luck would have it, the BRO holiday gift selection #11 arrived in time for a holiday kick-off this evening. It just so happens that two of Buffalo’s most bitchinest fashionistas are hosting a one-month (select weekends) Allentown open house trunk show, featuring some rather unusual gift items for the more adventurous people on your gift list. Leave it to Morgen Love and Marilyn Hammer to bring to the street a mix of belts, feather earrings, hair adornments, leather goods, cuffs, exotic beads, artwork, charms and customized clothing.
Rarely have you ever seen a collection of adornments and oddities quite like this. The selections range from bold necklaces made from natural and found materials to altered creepy Barbie doll figures. There’s even a supply shop stocked with spare bones, beads, feathers, etc. so that aspiring designers can dream up their own creations. While supplies last, the two are throwing in a Pez dispenser (from Marilyn’s collection) to sweeten the pot – purchase a gift and get a Pez dispenser.
In recent years, Morgen and Marilyn have been creating quite a stir when it comes to local fashion and design.
Both of us are independent artists operating out of home studios, so a trunk show is a great opportunity to present our work to the public in a boutique-style setting for a limited time. By offering our show at SP@CE 224, we’re hoping to cater not only to the artistic community and the Allentown nightlife, but also to folks who saw our creations in this year’s Mass Appeal Fashion Show, and to last minute holiday shoppers. We’re offering a selection of hand-crafted artisan wares including jewelry, accessories, and clothing, along with original artwork, oddities and found treasures.
The two were recently featured in the Mass Appeal fashion show (see slide shows). You can also see some of Morgen’s feather earring creations at Wild Things on Lexington Avenue.
The LoveHammer Collection is #11 on BRO’s holiday wish list. Click here to find more gift ideas.
To view this featured design collection in person, just head over to SP@CE 224 Allen Street (across from the Old Pink), where the girls will be set up on select holiday weekends. Opening kick-off for the bad-ass boutique is tonight starting at 6pm.
Hours (running this weekend & next):
Fridays 6-11pm | Saturdays noon-6pm
