Garmentory at Poketo Project Space
We’ve teamed up with Los Angeles lifestyle brand Poketo for a very special pop-up inside their brand new space at The Row DTLA. * Pause for excitement * As long time fans of Poketo, this collaboration has truly been a dream of ours. Open until June 10th, the space features some of the most exciting labels we have our eyes on right now – everything from ready-to-wear to shoes and accessories. There are over 40 designer labels to shop from including VereVerto, Micaela Greg, Ilana Kohn, Alex Crane, The Palatines, Botanica Workshop, Carla Colour and Ajaie Alaie.
If you live in LA or have the time for a mini vacation, we highly suggest you hop in a car/plane/bus and head straight to the space. If you can’t make it IRL, don’t worry, we got you. You can still shop all the designers right here on Garmentory. Scroll on to get to know our pop-up squad.
