In anticipation of the closing of the Milwaukee Fortress Building for conversion to apartments, Vanessa Devaki Andrew, Milwaukee native and Co-Founder of the once-was Fasten Cooperative Clothing Gallery, is relocating artist studio and event-only, traveling pop-up showroom “Look Nook” to a permanent, street level brick and mortar at 1737A N. Palmer Street in Historic Brewers’ Hill with finally-regular Thursday through Sunday store hours.
The grand reopening of “Madam Chino’s LOOK NOOK” under the namesake “Madam Chino” will occur on Friday November 4th, 2016 from noon until 8pm, with regular store hours thereafter on Thursdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Fridays 12 p.m.to 6 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sundays 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and by appointment. Chino will gladly take alterations, repairs, and custom sewing orders, will offer classes monthly on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings after 6 p.m., and host craft-based, all-call gallery events on a quarterly basis.
Leadership and promotion of sustainability in production and consumption is a goal at Madam Chino, which will showcase in-house and artist-made, as well as vintage and reuse finery; garments, accessories, home and paper goods, fabric and crafting supplies. View the product line of over 80 garment, accessory, and homegood products made-to-order from 100% recycled T-shirts.
