Cincinnati Fashion

My attention is drawn once again to the Cincinnati fashion scene by up-and-coming fashion force, The Brush Factory, the creative concept of Brittany rose Kovacs. The mission statement of the space is as follows:

“The Brush Factory is a studio and retail space that designs and produces high quality hand crafted apparel for fashion conscious men and women. It will provide Cincinnati with an exciting shopping alternative by being able to view the process and become an incubator for emerging design talent.

This organization and design co – op will provide professional development and resources so designers can establish a sustainable livelihood through inspiration and craftsmanship.”

You can read a short article about the new space at CityBeat.

You can also read more about Brittany rose Kovacs at her blog, “A Dose of Design.”

And you can view her work at the Etsy shop featuring her own line, Poncho Rose.

I have to say that even as an only occasional visitor to Cincinnati (I visit about once a month), I perceive something exciting happening in Brighton, a suburb of Cincinnati just off of downtown. Maybe that will warrant a post at some point, the exciting new developing Brighton.

The space turned out really well. Were you at the opening?

I’m glad it turned out well!
No, I wasn’t able to make it to the opening. I live in Columbus and had another event that night. I hope it was a complete success, and I look forward to seeing how your presence in Brighton adds to the creative community there.
Best of luck!
