ID Pop Shop is successful in part because of how Wilkinson (of Barbara Wilkinson Jewelry), and Calleja (of Vernakular Photo Designs) curate the event, bringing together a wonderfully eclectic mix of brands. The huge success of the first Independent Designer Pop (ID Pop Shop) event in June 2011, paved the way for nearly 20 more shows in 2011 and 2012. From event to event the designers change, but the one constant is that the brands included are always fresh, exciting, and ones you won’t find just anywhere.
Designers chosen to participate know that they will be in good company because of the reputation of ID Pop Shop as the most upscale independent shopping experience in Manhattan. Wilkinson and Calleja strive to keep every aspect of ID Pop Shop tasteful and impeccable, they truly care about working with the designers, because they are designers too and these are their peers.

“Our aesthetic is fresh, fashion forward and refined,” says Wilkinson. The shows are extended time-frames as well, usually a week at a time, so that customers can actually come back during the run of the show. Professionals from Google, MLB and Food Network are a big fan base in the building; they stop by several times during the week and are loyal customers.

Having the events at Chelsea Market Event Space is a big advantage. Currently one of the most buoyant retail areas in Manhattan, in part due to the High Line and the revitalization of the Meatpacking District, Chelsea Market attracts a healthy combination of tourists, locals, and business people. Now that word of the events has grown, the show boasts wait lists of dozens of designers who wish to participate in ID Pop Shop.

By Kevin Clark for Women’s Mafia

Raoul Calleja is a unique photo artist and one of the co-founders of the Independent Designers Pop Shop, a bi-monthly retail event taking place in New York. Raoul has a unique style to his artwork that draws inspiration from his domestic and international travels and time spent living in New York. As the Creative Director and Founder of Vernakular Photo Designs he works with other photographers to create merchandise that showcases their work. Their photos have been transposed onto a variety of objects including: leather wallets, passport holders, door mats, t-shirts, journals, and messenger bags.

Raoul graduated from Ryerson University in Toronto and then embarked on a four-year adventure throughout Asia. After returning from Asia he worked for a navigation software company where he traveled across 34 states taking pictures of America’s heartland allowing him to produce his early series, Highway Americana. Some of his other work has showcased the quaintness of old Cuba through pictures of vintage cars and unpaved, narrow city streets.  His photographs of New York capture the urban texture and grittiness of America’s largest city.

The Independent Designer Pop Shop is going on now through Sunday, February 24th, with more events to follow in the coming months. Find out more about Raoul’s work with Vernakular Photo here: www.vernakular.com/photographers/.

ID POP SHOP: THE COLLECTIVE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE IS ELEVATED
Independent Designer Pop Shop (ID Pop Shop) A Game-Changer In Group Markets
February 17th – 24th, 10:30am – 7:30pm daily. Chelsea Market, 75 9th Avenue

Almost two years ago independent designers, Raoul Calleja and Barbara Wilkinson, were faced with a dilemma with their respective brands. As independent business owners who rely on direct-to-customer retail events to sell their products but they weren’t finding a lot of events worth doing.  Retail events for independent brands are often limited to weekend markets, flea markets, or the ubiquitous shopping parties that combined drinking and shopping. These shows were becoming less appealing and less lucrative, especially when you factor in the overhead for these events. To make matters worse, the shows were expensive and not well marketed.

Faced with a shortage of good shows to showcase their own brands, Wilkinson of Barbara Wilkinson Jewelry, and Calleja of Vernakular Photo Designs, did what any creative entrepreneur and independent-spirited person would do, they created their own event, the Independent Designer Pop Shop (ID Pop Shop). Wilkinson and Calleja did more than just rent out space and have  a show. They had a clear mandate–to assemble New York City’s most exciting independent brands by designers who design and create their own products. The huge success of the first show in June 2011, paved the way for over a dozen more shows in 2011 and 2012. The next show will be featuring 24 independent brands, from jewelry, apparel, accessories and skin care, to home décor.

ID Pop Shop is successful in part because the venue is gorgeous and upscale, and also because Wilkinson and Calleja curate the brands well and limit key categories, such as jewelry for example, to only 8 designers because each show needs to be diverse and differentiated. “Our aesthetic is clean, upscale and fashion focused,” says Wilkinson.  The shows are extended time-frames as well, usually a week at a time, so that customers can actually come back during the run of the show. Many Google, Food Network and other nearby employees enjoy stopping by several times during the week and are loyal customers.

Having the events at Chelsea Market Event Space is also a big advantage. Currently one of the most buoyant retail areas in Manhattan, in part due to the Highline and the revitalization of the Meatpacking District, Chelsea Market attracts a healthy combination of tourists, locals, and business people. Now that word of the events has grown, the show boasts wait lists of dozens of designers who wish to participate in ID Pop Shop.

Wilkinson and Calleja truly care about working with the designers, because they are designers too and these are their peers. “We know what we want to get out of a space like this and we work with these designers to maximize their sales and bring more people through the door each time we have an event,” says Calleja.
