Milanese fashion and art gallery 10 Corso Como is slated to open its only U.S. location at the historic Seaport District in Lower Manhattan this September to coincide with New York Fashion Week.
With the official opening event set on September 6, the launch will celebrate the world’s original concept store and present a blend of art, music, fashion, design, cuisine and culture. The 28,000-square-foot space will occupy the entire first floor of the historic Fulton Market Building, and will introduce the unique visual aesthetic of American artist Kris Ruhs, who also created the signature look of all 10 Corso Como locations in Milan, Seoul, Shanghai and Beijing.
The flagship will feature an Italian café and restaurant, fashion apparel, design objects and books, as well as an art and photography gallery and a garden.
10 Corso Como was founded in Milan in 1991 by former fashion editor and publisher Carla Sozzani, and it pioneered the retail concept destination, creating the unique experience of a "virtual 3D magazine" with a curated mix of cultural mediums in a single place. This grand opening will one of the highlight destinations of New York’s revitalized waterfront neighborhood.
