Topstitch’s Grand Reopening!

Topstitch 2I’m not rich, so First Friday can sometimes be a bit of a bummer. Lots of great art, none of it even remotely in my price range (moderately poor to scraping the table). Which is why I’m so psyched for Topstitch’s opening on Friday. A collaboration between designers from Honeymilk, Kinked Works and Babooshka, Topstitch features affordable art, charming hand-crafted pieces and reconstructed vintage clothing, and to-die-for accessories (I’m obsessed with Cholita’s hair combs festooned with tiny feather charms).

Topstitch was conceived as a space, says Babooshka’s Francesca Sloan, where the designers could have a retail space and work space as well. Which means that “we can fit the clothes around you. We do free alterations, within reason,” she adds.

This Friday’s opening will feature the requisite drinks and DJs, plus works from photographer Isaac Schell. His collection of photos, entitled “Bars. Churches. Beauty Salons” draws upon the parallels between the public spaces.

Opening: Friday, March 2. 6-10 p.m.

311 Market Street,
Philadelphia PA 19106
