Stores We Adore: Flirt Brooklyn
Physical home: Brooklyn, New York
Internet home: Website
What happens when you take three friends each with an artistic passion and wanting to make a living creatively? You get a wonderful shop with unique and beautiful clothes, jewelry and home-goods. All three owners are artists in their own right: Patti a designer, seamstress and dancer, Seryn a singer and Heather an actress. And each wanted to explore their interests in NYC while making a living. The ladies have always been dedicated to carrying independent designers, back before Brooklyn was the chic and trendy neighborhood that it is now. Flirt was one of the first shops in the metro NY area to carry Karina dresses.
Flirt loves helping you discover the next perfect skirt, top, or pair of pants. Take your time oohing and aahing over their perfectly curated and eclectic mix of classic styles, emerging designers and savvy products.
Want something specific? Design your own skirt with more than 80 fabrics to choose from.
Want to learn a new sewing skill? Sign up for one of their amazing sewing classes like Build a Bag workshop, Flirt Skirt class or How to Sew a T-shirt class plus many more!
The ladies at Flirt contribute to the community they work in, by starting a sewing-based charity that gives back to the young people in the hood. They also run youth classes to encourage young people discover their passion for design and sewing early.
