LA-based contemporary brand Splendid is opening their first Northwest store at Bellevue Square mall later this month. The new 1,200 square foot store will offer the entire Splendid line for men, women, and children. To celebrate the grand opening of their newest location in Bellevue on Oct. 22nd Splendid is collaborating with Crafting Community from 1-3pm to provide an "oasis of crafting, creativity, and imagination for kids, parents and people of all ages". Created by Los Angeles based artist Karen Kimmel and Kid Concierge, Crafting Community events feature fun, interactive workshops focused on reusing and repurposing natural materials.
Among the numerous activities offered is the Sew Splendid Cart, where families can design their own custom Splendid scarf by mixing and matching fabrics in the brand’s vibrant color palette to create their ideal accessory. Another will be Fun with Fabrics, a fabric and beading workshop where participants create one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets and key fobs by braiding, twisting and knotting Splendid fabric with colorful beads. Attendees can recreate Splendid’s Crafting Community experience by purchasing “Fun With Fabrics” to-go kits that include all the ingredients necessary to construct DIY accessories at home. An added incentive to attend is four lucky guests will win $250 shopping sprees at the Splendid store.
Founded in 2002, the Splendid brand is the culmination of a ten year quest to create the ultimate t-shirt. The success in designing such a soft material cut in the perfect silhouetteevolved into what is now a complete lifestyle collection of ultra-comfortable styles for the entire family. Splendid can be found at the flagship retail location on Robertson Boulevard in the brand’s hometown of Los Angeles, in the Aventura boutique, in the Newport Beach boutique and at high-end department and specialty stores nationwide and online at splendid.com.
