Meet our Bleecker Team!

Welcome to our flagship store! We opened at 363 Bleecker St in the fall of 2017, and we're so thrilled to have made a home here. If you're in town, come visit!


Meet Mariam! A native New Yorker from the Bronx, she's currently studying retail at FIT. She loves all things skincare, and enjoys finding new places to eat around the city.






From Queens, Alison has an all around love for creativity and art. When not as Zuri, she can be found working on designs at Alterworks Studios in Queens or sharing her songwriting at an open mic. Check out her designs at awarenewyork.com and follow her at @theartofalison for updates on her artistic endeavors!




Born and raised in the Bronx, Paloma is currently in school and has a deep passion for singing and music. She's been working with us at the store since day one when we opened!

WHAT WE'RE LISTENING TO // United States of Anxiety

I was a history major in college, and even now, I like to turn to history to try and contextualize what's going on around me. This podcast has been an engaging and thoughtful resource in helping give some context to what's going on as we consider the upcoming election, particularly drawing on post-Civil War Reconstruction to help explain it. Give it a listen and tell us what you think!
