Drawing from an exclusively female roster of top creative talents, the pop up will feature over 20 different designers across a variety of platforms. All designers new to Wilder, and many new to the southeast completely. I know, it does sound good, doesn't it?
Included in the offerings will be hand marbled wallpaper from Calico Wallpaper (which will also be featured in an in-store installation), African-made shoes from Brother Vellies, bags from Marlow Goods, jewlery and bags by Lizzie Fortunato, textiles by Eskayel, Minna, Audrey Louise Reynolds and Aelfie, ceramics by Calyer and BZippy & Co., skincare by Joanna Vargas and Benshen, and clothing for both women and children by Lem Lem, Ace and Jig, Mara Hoffman and Ulla Johnson. There will also be limited edition prints from artists Cass Bird, Caris Reid, Amanda Valdez and a new zine by Amber Ibarreche.
Come to the LOVE OR NOTHING launch, Friday February 12th from 6-9pm-- meet Pam and Skye, get your VDay mood on, and maybe pick up a little something for you or your Valentine. Josh will be spinning records from his collection and there will be adult beverages.
An extended selection of Pam's jewelry will be available all opening weekend (Friday night through Sunday), featuring additional styles beyond the Wilder offerings, and also including some pieces from her exquisite fine jewelry line.
The entire Love or Nothing popup will be on view from February 12th through April 3rd, and will also be fully shop-able online here.
