A cannon of aesthetics, settled in the burgeoning district of Nolita, fashion’s best-kept liaison secrète can be found downtown at EVA boutique, located at 227 Mulberry Street, between Prince & Spring Streets.
Celebrating its forthcoming five-year anniversary with the launch of www.evanewyork.net, this brave boudoir is taking a vision of fashion three shades deeper to explore new forms and revelations in the realm of fashion design.
Showcasing a seasonal theatrical tableaux performed by a team of brazen photographers, stylists, and web deisigners. The website captures the progressive commentary inherent of the sartorial distinction that EVA defines.
EVA fuses art with fashion through carefully edited collections provoked by mechanics of construction and decorative art. Unpressured by the sentiments to conform, EVA is the pre-eminent institutional support for young talented designers and a marvel for the future of accessible fashion retailing. Handpicked and habitually one-of-a-kind pieces, EVA is an extension of the wardrobe of the boutiques owner Stephanie Pappas.
Attracted to a designer’s individuality and the architecture of the clothing, EVA pushes fashion in the direction of artistic lifestyle.
A clever collection combining altered classics with avant-garde designs, EVA yanks fashion away from nostalgia into a modern realm of distinctiveness, sophistication, and expression.
This Fall, EVA will again be one of the first to preview McQ by Alexander McQueen along with Vivienne Westwood Anglomania, Martin Margiela Line 6, Myth and Ritual, ACNE, Spijkers & Spijkers, Sharon Wauchob Collection K, Daryl K and the raw talents of Society For Rational Dress, Guild, Grey Ant, and Lauren Felton. Denim lines ACNE Jeans, Ernest Sewn, and jewelry designers Made Her Think, Noir, Axis Cherry and Rebecca Lau.
A favorite stop for Natalie Portman, Rebecca Romajin, Anouck Lepere, Daryl Hannah, Erin Wasson, Bjork and fashion stylists Lori Goldstein, Susan Joy, Patty Wilson and Patricia Fields, among a few, EVA represents the visions of tomorrow’s great designers and makes them accessible to her fashion forward followers.
Stephanie Pappas, a Long Island native born into a family of retailers, rebelled against her fashion family to find her own way. She found herself truckin’ the United States in a VW wagon designing and selling jewelry along the way. She eventually made her way back from California to Manhattan where she cultivated her inclination to create.
She enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Technology for jewelry design and worked with jewelry designers Noir, Audrey Werner, and Erickson Beamon. Attending fashion shows and meeting young designers she was instinctively drawn to innovative designs.
Kindled by a vision and an aesthetic conceptual verve she sensed through her association with talented designers, Pappas paired her retail background to launch EVA. Broadening her family’s tradition and naming the store after her mother, Pappas fused glamour and counter-distinctive creations from an extension of herself to a token to New York City fashion.
