The Harlem Haberdashery Family
The award-winning (Time Out New York) bespoke boutique listed as "One of the best places to shop in Harlem" (Racked.com). The "retail expression" of 5001 FLAVORS located in the heart of Harlem, NY opened in 2012. The nearly 2,000 square foot boutique, former home of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, carries emerging accessory and apparel designers and pays homage to Harlem’s rich history and luminaries.
Harlem Haberdashery was created by legendary custom-fashion design and styling company 5001 FLAVORS (featured in CNN Films documentary “Fresh Dressed”). Think the late Notorious B.I.G. in elaborate leather ensembles, Grammy award-winners Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind", or David Beckham’s "Welcome to the U.S." Adidas promotion campaign. The family behind these iconic looks created and opened, with much success, a beautiful "retail expression" of their custom-designs and styling; Harlem Haberdashery’s signature collection has been seen on everyone from award-winning restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson, to New York Giants’ Victor Cruz, New York Yankees’ CC Sabathia and others.
