IAYD Publisher Margarita Barry announced today, the much anticipated Grand Opening date of 71 POP which will be held on Saturday, July 30 from 2-5pm at 71 Garfield Street. 71 POP will be Midtown Detroit’s first ever collaborative pop-up retail solely dedicated to emerging designers. The “pop-up shop with a twist” will allow emerging designers to work or create, while 71 POP sells their wares for a limited time — handling the nuts and bolts of running a business, from marketing to online sales to ringing up items at the cash register.
By providing the space, the infrastructure, and tools needed, someone with little to no experience can have their own retail shop. 71 POP will house 3-4 shop artists at a time; with each shop installation features the product selection of a Detroit artist or brand that temporarily inhabits the space. The spaces will often change creating an ever-transforming collage of creativity and a unique way to shop local. See the invite and more information after the jump.
