Established in May 2017 by three independent creatives, Da Spot NYC ("DA SPOT") is a unique fashion boutique featuring 25+ creative brands by people of color. DA Spot was launched in a 100sqft retail space with just three indie brands in addition to its owners'. Within 6 months, DA SPOT grew to house 25 brands and has since housed over 50 emerging creatives brands in shop.
In August 2019, DA SPOT launched its first annual festival in partnership with the DUMBO Business Improvement District called DEAR SUMMER VIBES NYC: A Celebration of the Creative Culture. The festival features creatives in various aspects such as Art, Food, Music, Crafts, Lifestyle, Wellness and Fashion.
In November 2019, DA SPOT relocated to a 1,000 sqft retail space within the popular City Point BKLYN. It now houses its original Dumbo neighbor, the C.A.N.V.A.S Art Gallery (Creating A New View Around Society), which features the work of local artists each month through Artportunities. DA SPOT also hosts creative workshops, business panels, art shows and live performances for the community. DA SPOT is more than a boutique, it’s a platform for creativity.
