What is a pop-up store?

Good question! A Boldfacers pop-up store is a one-time-only, gone-in-a-flash shopping/editorial/advertising experience set up for 1-2 days. Each month, we feature a different theme and showcase local, excellent, unique vendors and designers -- you know, the Boldfacers of that particular industry. We're always looking for fun themes and talent, so if you have any ideas, please write us at

How we landed our NYC designers...

Chances are, you've heard of StuffBoston's editorial director, Erica Corsano. She's a well-known mover and shaker on Beantown turf. She found her match at an early age in Elena-- her sister -- who also serves as a mover and shaker...on the Big Apple's turf. Elena c-owns Arsenic 9, a branding company that represents some of Manhattan's hottest up and coming (and arrived) designers and businesses.

Pop-up store

So baseball season is well under way, and you know it's just a matter of time before the Red Sox and Yankees jokes start flying. (As if they ever stop.) Let's rise above this, shall we? Into the lofty world of style, full of fun, fashion and...fighting? Some of the Big Apple's finest designers are roaring up to Beantown for Boldfacers' Fashion Face-Off Pop-Up Store to strut their stuff alongside Boston's brightest. It's all in good sportsmanship, of course, as you will see this Friday at a night full of select secret sample sales, pre-fall collections and one-of-a-kind designs. Oh, and there's a DJ party, too. Take that, Fenway Park.

Dex New York

Cosmetics Line

When Dexter Phillip decided to launch his own cosmetics line, he had two prerequisites: One, his line would be cruelty-free, hypoallergenic, and eco-friendly. And two, his artist, stylist and photographer friends would all approve. After receiving the thumbs up on all counts, Dexter proudly rolled out a full collection of modern mineral makeup to take women from the runway to the street. He describes his line as natural, not neutral. We’ll add in always smashing

Michelle Vale




What happens when your dad is a jeans designer and your mom owns a clothing boutique? Not a future in chemistry…although Michelle Vale mixes together some pretty cool metals to create her line of handbags.

Using only the finest leathers and exotic skins, Michele offers the modern woman a customized bag that is all about the now, now, now. 


Women’s Apparel

Suma Chander grew up in a small town in India and worked on Wall Street for years. Sounds like a recipe for a fashion-designing future to us. Why? Because all true dreams come from within, and ever since she was young, Suma had a burning interest in clothing, fabrics and color. Her first collection bridges Suma’s Indian heritage with her love of American and European sportswear. Feminine layering, textured fabrics and unique hand work are staples of her designs. Distinctively elegant, this Spring/Summer collection possesses all that Suma believes in: authenticity, sophistication, lushness and simplicity.

Galvin-ized Headwear


Marie Galvin is an award-winning Irish milliner based in Boston. Ten years ago, with limited access to schools offering millinery courses in the States, Galvin resorted to teaching herself the art of millinery. She began daily studies, poring over old edition millinery instructional books and by deconstructing vintage hats. Seems she succeeded, considering that Cher, Alicia Keys, Vivica A Fox, Claire Danes and Taye Diggs can all be seen topping off their looks with her hats. 

Maya Luz

Women’s Apparel

You may recognize her from Project Runway, but Maya Luz was a rising star long before the reality TV show. Born in Sante Fe, New Mexico, Maya moved to Boston to attend the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she graduated with distinction. She is no trend follower, that’s for sure. Her signature pieces include a ball and chain evening bag and shredded dresses to reflect a not-so-subtle swipe at fashion victims. Maya’s work has graced the pages of the Boston Globe, New York Times and US Weekly.
