The growing streetwear scene in Ireland. Local labels are popping up all the time. We had a look at the upcoming Emporium Ireland event
With the intention of working as a pop up retail space and meeting location for Irish streetwear enthusiasts. Emporium Ireland in association with Soul Doubt Magazine and Coffee and Kicks have created an event, called TINT, that gives designers a chance to meet each other and their target community in the intimate setting of Luckys bar on Meath Street.
The first Emporium event was run in Tola Vintage back in March, and had roughly 500 people through its doors. With this being a collective event we would expect a much larger crowd on show. With some of the best up and coming brands in Irish menswear and streetwear on show.
Many of the brands on show at the event have had their lookbooks featured here on FAC, yet there is always a different feel seeing the clothing in person. Finding out whether it is wearable with your style rather than just scrolling through pictures deciding if it is cool or not. You can now do that in person!
We will be there taking in the action come Saturday, the 22nd of September. Hope to see you there too!
