M.M. LaFleur Pop-Up Shop
While working at a private equity firm in NYC, M.M. LaFleur founder Sarah Miyazawa LaFleur became increasingly frustrated every time she went shopping for work clothes and was unable to find fashionable yet affordable work-wear. She teamed up with designer Miyako Nakamura (previously, one of the lead designers for both Jason Wu and Zac Posen) to create a line of dresses that are figure flattering, while remaining practical for the workplace. The pop up will be held at the AIA District Architecture Center in Penn Quarter from November 15th – 23rd.
