CURIO Pop-Up Brings Fall Fashions to NJ

CURIO Pop-Up Brings Fall Fashions to NJ

This Wednesday, Sept. 16 and Thursday, Sept. 17, CURIO is hosting a private shopping event right here in the Garden State! Hosted at 169 Rennelaer Rd. in scenic Essex Fells, NJ, CURIO’s Faena Bazaar experiences bring the glamour of Miami to New Jersey shoppers.

CURIO co-founders Danielle Licata and Jeffrey Lasota are New Jersey natives, themselves! They spoke with Hip New Jersey about their upcoming pop-ups, and what inspires them to take Florida fashion home.


You both have had such big careers in fashion that have taken you all over the world. What brought you back to host these events in NJ?
.
“Even before Covid hit, we had been planning to bring our unique curation to the Northeast during the quieter months in Miami.  Miami is such a major tourist destination for all of the northeast, so we have some of our best customers in the tri-state area…With so many of them not traveling, this allowed us to still connect with them.
.
Also, NJ is home – it is where our heart is, our homes, our network of friends, family, and extended customer network.  This will always be home and someplace where we want to expose to our global curations. We love to wardrobe our clients and continue to push their style boundaries and find those pieces that make them stand out in the crowd.”
.
.
Faena Bazaar perfectly captures the colorful, playful style of Miami. What about that style do you hope to bring to New Jersey shoppers?
.
“Fashion can sometimes feel ubiquitous.  We pride ourselves on selling pieces and brands where you don’t see yourself coming and going.  On the other hand, fashion can also feel quite intimidating, and we like to make it easy to approach.  We provide an effortless approach in our offering, our shopping environment, as well as our selling experience which is easy and authentic.”
.
.
Is there anything particular about this sale regarding the transition into the fall fashion “season”?
.
“Fall is all about layers, and with global warming more prevalent each year, it’s all about having options for the next several months to layer. From coats and shearlings to sweaters and tops, its all about how you mix your pieces together based on where you’re going and what the weather is outside.  For this Fall season, we have really been focused in our offering to have those great pieces that are relevant to the times right now—items that are perfect for lounging, Zooms, dinners with close friends, or at-home entertaining.”
.
.
You’ve taken your show on the road. What made you choose these specific locations in NJ?  Can you tell us your next stop after Essex Fells?
.
“One of our best customers and close friends will be hosting this event.  All of our pop-ups are rooted in a strong personal relationship which keeps the events very fun and lighthearted.  We aren’t there to ‘sell’, we are there to have fun and show you some amazing new pieces that might find a home as your new favorite piece in your closet. After this, we have events planned in New York; Deal, NJ; Washington, D.C.; and Los Angeles.”
.
.
Can anyone attend?  Do you need an appointment?  Can you tell us more about the safety protocols present at this week’s sale?
.
“Anyone and everyone are welcome to attend. We are working by appointment in order to maintain a luxury experience and will also allow us to be able to maintain safety for everyone involved.  Masks will be worn and provided for anyone who forgets, and we will be limiting the number of people in the space at any one time.  Please DM us at @FaenaBazaarCURIO, or reach out to Danielle@curio-ny.com or Jeff@curio-ny.com to schedule your personal shopping appointment.”
