**** CAN'T WAIT (ANY LONGER) CHAPTER 1

MOVES: Opening Party


Ruffeo Hearts Lil’ Snotty (RHLS) and Williamsburg Fashion Weekend combine forces to bring together a POP UP SHOP experience like no other. After years of honing their skills at making kick ass clothing right here in Brooklyn with transparent business practices, RHLS works with the most diverse, iconoclastic and original fashion show production house (WFW) to take a POP UP SHOP idea to the next level.
This holiday season ( starting Nov. 5th and ending Dec. 19th) not only will you be able to buy locally made clothing, accessories and art, but you will also have the opportunity to hear lectures by seasoned professionals in the field of clothing manufacturing, to educate the general public in being a more conscientious consumer as well as budding designers looking to take steps toward creating their own business'.
Each weekend will also feature local bands and djs along with drink sponsors creating specialty cocktails specifically for the event.

Ruffeo Hearts Lil’ Snotty (RHLS) and Williamsburg Fashion Weekend present: "MOVES, a movement for independent Industry." Introducing a new pop-up shop in Greenpoint, slated to become the crux of Brooklyn design culture. MOVES features 23 established and up and coming designers, artists, and performances by musicians from New York City, all hand-picked to provide a potent shopping experience during the holiday season. No craft fair flair. No hodgepodge of styles. MOVES is sleek and unified with a focus on culture and community.

MOVES is open for 7 four-day weekends starting November 5 ending December 19th. On Opening night Brooklyn-based bands Total Slacker and Alaskas will entertain the masses with a free all ages show. Following weekends will include DJS and TBA bands to continue the musical menagerie. Tutorials will be given teaching new clothing lines and seamsters how to gear production practices towards being stream lined and more cost efficient. Lectures will be given by local experts informing small business owners how to gain access to grants and loans. A production house will offer talks informing business owners how to have small additions of product locally produced in an affordable manner. Come for the education. Come for the music. Come for the alcohol. Come to experience the best of independent business.
