FASHION GONE LOCAL: Exploring C.Madeleine’s with Yoanna House

Having spent over twenty years building a candy store of collectable fashion, C’Madeleine’s is recognized world-wide as the mecca for vintage and designer clothing.  Referred as one of “The Fashion Wonders of the World,” it’s no surprise this 10,000 square foot destination attracts the who’s-who of the fashion scene, including celebrity stylists and photographers, designers like Jeremy Scott and Michael Kors, and stars of the red carpet like Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.

What Better Way To Greet Visitors than with Coco Chanel

Built by the eponymous owner Madeleine Kirsh herself (who’s unpredictable style personality is always perfectly complimented with eye frames and bedazzled Swarovskis), this eccentric menagerie of Chanel and Hermes is the only place Kirsh believes people can enter and “be anything they want to be.”

Beautifully organized in chronological order by decades, there’s no shortage of the creativity here.
