If you are familiar with NYC, retail spaces, various fashion brands, then I’m sure you know what a pop-up shop is! They are amazing gems you can find throughout different times of the year, such as summertime or the holidays. Well I have a brand new pop-up to inform all of my Fashion Nexus readers about, Creeds Collective. Creeds Collective just opened on Nov. 1st and is in Soho for 2 months, perfect timing with the holidays right around the corner! The basics —
- The location, 54 Crosby St., between Broome & Spring Streets
- Hours of operation, 7 days a week, 11 am – 7 pm
Creeds Collective is all about socially conscious fashion, beauty, lifestyle, art, and decor. This concept is represented from the brands carried to the set-up of the space. It is the love child of Creeds of Love and Concept Collective, which have now partnered to bring to the millions of NYC residents & tourists this socially responsible, interactive holiday pop-up shop!
“Creeds Collective is an all encompassing experience that stimulates every sense, educates to break barriers in commerce and society, while spotlighting innovation and great design.”
There are 3 levels of retail & event space that make-up Creeds Collective, a great opportunity for all of the featured brands & activations to be able to access. Beyond clothing, accessories and beauty baubles, the seasonal retailer will further house a THANN beauty bar, a Primp and Polish nail art bar, #hashtag photobooth, “new-tech” station, art exhibitions, and a speak easy menswear lounge entitled “Grotto de Homme” “We want to bring “on the verge” designers to a highly trafficked retail district and space, executing events that both showcase their products, and connect them with their consumers on a whole new level,” explains Halphen, pop-up Founder.
Dedicated to locating and showcasing emerging excellence in fashion, beauty, lifestyle and wellness, the grand gift shop serves another “Special” purpose. “All Creeds Collective brands are selected not only for their superior talent,” explains co-founder and Conscious Consumerism expert, Phillips, “but for their social impact and motivation to shift the industry paradigm” she explains.

THE CREED COLLECTIVE MANIFESTO
For the visionaries, the creatives, the lovers, the
peaceful fighters, the evangelists, the diligent, the no break takers,
the no nay sayers, the soft hearted and strong willed.
Those not after gold, but pursuing the golden opportunity to change a life,
change a mind, shape a situation, forge a bridge. Because it is true in deed that
a small group of citizens can in fact change the world, shift the paradigm,
alter an industry, shake up a community by creating a cause that delves
deeper than just living life day to day, hustle to hustle, tit for tat.
We say this for that!
Give us ideas, give us innovation, give us purpose, give
us connections, give us one another. For how we think in our
hearts so are we. We love without boundaries, give without
expectation, care beyond reason, create without measure.
We may wander, but we are not lost.
We aren’t elitists, we are a community.
Never for the sake of fortune or fame, but joined together to
produce legacies of love, advantages breed for those less fortunate.
Lives lived with humble hearts, motive and intention.
Similar mentalities produce real life actualities.
Our streets… our streets are paved in love.
Failure is nonexistent because trying is achievement.
So here… in this place we stand,
we vow to help one another
validate virtue and advocate change.
