I want to identify and understand that "when we speak about fashion, we don't speak just about clothes, by fashion we mean the surface of the multiple process in society either in human condition, mentality and also culture". -Ewelina Dziewiela
"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas; the way we live, what is happening". -Coco Chanel

A truely unique place!

This humble space is the Greenwood Collective (85th + Greenwood).
It was bought by a local artist who salvaged the existing space in which interior designers/decorators used as a showroom. Urban Light Studios now occupies the space.

I was so impressed walking into this space.
Every room felt like you were in a whole new place, a whole new world!
Not only is the furniture beautiful, but the walls, colors and textures!
Just an old dumpy factory, that use to produce 'Maries' dressing, turned showroom, turned design space where you can rent out rooms for parties, meetings, receptions, etc.

My friend Kate Barnett occupies one of the artist studios in the bottom floor of the above space, "The B Hive"
