Opening Ceremony was founded by two friends who left their jobs in corporate fashion to open a place where they could share their love of art, fashion and travel. The name comes from the modern Olympic Games, which also inspired the concept of the brand. While promoting iconic US designers and artists, Opening Ceremony also showcases international designs from a different country each year, bringing an exotic flavor to NYC. The two stores are located next to each other; the more recently opened shop offers stylish menswear created by renowned designers, while the original store features womenswear, a bookshop, and shoe gallery over four levels.
