Private School 101 is a month long experiential showcase for brands, leaders, and makers, a brief collective where daily happenings inspire lifelong bonds. All month long, we are showcasing two BUS STOP X styles – NERO sneaker + MAVRO ASPRO pumps which are both available for purchase.

We were featured in The Philadelphia Inquirer, see link below to read full article.

Excerpt from The Philadelphia Inquirer: Some of the entrepreneurs Shehu has recruited — like BUS STOP Boutique — have actual specialty stores, but a lot of the makers — like Jovan O’Connor — are young business owners whose customer bases mostly follow them on Instagram. In this space, which Shehu based on the original Dover Street Market in London, the city’s burgeoning fashion industry has a chance to mingle together and see customers in real life.

“Private School is a cultural event,” Shehu said hours before the kickoff party last week. She’s calling it a retail experiment. “It’s not just a marketplace. It’s an energetic space for makers and curators. This is where the curious mind can go and discover [what’s new] in food, product design, and music.”

The appeal of a place like Dover Street is that it offers uber-high-end fashion brands that still have an indie flavor, such as VetementsSacai, and Thom Browne. Though Private School has the potential to be that kind of place, the price points are more reasonable and the actual designers and vendors are often on hand to chat with you while you shop and possibly even make a deal with you
