Makkuro Makkuro is a curated pop-up shop established by Erika Enomoto in 2012. The pop-up shop features a few new local designers (including myself), and others that are more established in the local fashion community. While their products such as jewelry and clothing are sold, a section of the shop is composed of second hand fashion items.
I was invited to become a part of the Makkuro Makkuro team through my cousin Aron, who was a long time friend with the group that composed Makkuro Makkuro. Aron started his own jewelry line about the same time as I did, which naturally allowed us to support each other. It was great to see our style in jewelry-making form as both our lines were completely different! Follow his blog here.
I was really nervous and didn't know what to expect with the turnout, but the event was very successful and I've met a lot of new customers!
