Moore was looking for a space that could house both shop and studio, where customers could watch Skinny laMinx magic in action. This also meant that Moore and her team could meet their customers and use the shop as a lab for testing new products and designer collaborations.
Having both the studio and shop in one location made these prospects feasible. The area, known to some as "The Thinking Man's Long Street", is increasingly becoming attractive to pedestrians with the ever-expanding range of eateries and décor spaces.
One of the display walls in the shop sports a series of solid brass pegs and steel shelves entitled ‘The Skinny’ by design duo Pedersen + Lennard. This installation is a showcase of a brand new product developed especially for the Skinny laMinx shop.
Shoppers can expect to find the full range of Skinny laMinx tea towels, cushions, table runners, tablecloths, table napkins and stationery as well as retail fabric sales from the studio. The shop will carry 50's style sofas made to order by Dan Saks of Saks Corner in a range of Skinny laMinx fabrics.
Moore also has plans to sell vintage Danish furniture and accessories, in association with Space for Life. For more information about Skinny laMinx visit: skinnylaminx.com
