If you’re looking to accessorize your hairdo, you may want to check out the M & S Schmalberg sample sale in the Garment District. But hurry, today is the last day! Sabrina has our report:
“I’m finding that there are so many cool fashion “institutions” in NYC that you wouldn’t necessarily think about until they hit your radar. M & S Schmalberg is one of those places. This family-owned company is the largest manufacturer of custom silk fabric flower pins in the country. You’ve seen their work because they supply A-list celeb stylists and production houses (among many other clients).
They’re currently having a sample sale at their factory in the garment district. There’s a table of boxes filled with flowers. They’re organized by size (small – $3 and medium/large – $5). There’s a nice variety of colors and fabrications and a decent amount of inventory. I am not sure if they restocked as the sale went on.
I picked up 8 flowers (silk, linen) that I’m going to make various accessories from (bracelet, ponytail holder, headband, etc).
I suggest dropping in if you’re in the neighborhood for a cool, unique experience at a NYC fashion institution with a rich history or if you’re into crafts. Everyone was nice and friendly (that goes a long way with me!).” – Sabrina Theresa
