A concept born in Taiwan by CEO and owner Fanny Kong, At The Venue, located at 260 Mott Street, New York, is a multi-brand retail store, coworking space and open event space in the heart of Nolita that officially opened the week of April 25, 2022.

Fantastically versatile, At The Venue will allow participating brands to showcase their creations while providing open collaboration opportunities and support for tasks such as crafting and networking.

For residents, the benefits of a full experience include the ability to sell their wares, an exclusive co-working space, the ability to host private events including sample/trunk shows, cocktail parties, fashion shows, interview panels, photo shoots and themed parties plus, plus a workshop and fabrication services.

Following a successful pop-up store in the West Village last year, industry veteran Fanny Kong made the decision to open At The Venue permanently here in the United States.

The 1,000 square foot space will be the first of its kind in New York. Kong notes, “After seeing the positive reception for the brand here in the US, and especially in New York, we decided to go for something a little more permanent. There are so many brands eager to get started and many consumers excited to buy them. We connect the dots and help these emerging brands introduce themselves to the right buyers for their success. »

Brand’s will join At The Venue on an ongoing basis but will still specialize in knitwear with a sustainable look.
