Seasoned fashion influencer Sydney Dao of Squid Inc. has created LAUNCH, an exclusive pop-up shop to showcase Houston’s growing and thriving fashion and design community. The shop opened Downtown in early 2017 with a roster of 13 different designers and artisans. Now, the shop rotates through different local designers each month, allowing a variety of professionals the opportunity to showcase their products in the trendy space. At any given time, merchandise includes a mix of jewelry, men’s and women’s fashion and accessories—from wallets and handbags to t-shirts and chic dresses. Designer and craftsman Gino Vian of Merchant and Market transformed the interior space on the ground floor of Partnership Tower and created custom furniture and lightning to highlight the eclectic mix of goods. Janavi M Folmsbee’s colorful cityscape mural will echo the vibrant energy of Houston. The hours are: Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
