A thoroughly modern building is the last place you should find a relic of the past. But that is exactly what you will find at the 8th floor of MILK Studios in New York City – a turn of century saloon (make that “turn of 2 centuries”). Half saloon, half hunting lounge, the space is also Blind Barber for Gillette, a pop-up barber shop cater to industry insiders during New York Fashion Week. Whether it be a short breather between back to back runway shows, or just a last minute trim for next week’s Valentine’s Day, the folks from Blind Barber are ready. To celebrate its opening, hip hop rhapsodist and actor Common to congratulate Blind Barber co-founders Adam Kirsch and Jeff Laub last evening. Designer Richard Chai also took a break from all the fashion week mayhem and swung by as show of support. All the while, invited guests took the opportunity to enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvre, each other’s company, and last but not least, a quick hair cut. Part of festivities organized by MADE, a collaborative fashion initiative by MILK Studios and like-minded partners, the Blind Barber for Gillette Pop-Up Barber Shop will be onsite till next Wednesday, February 15th.
