Industry Showroom is a multi-purpose work space for up and coming designers in San Diego. They are currently moving into a new space, which, although unfinished, my Fashion Field Studies class was able to tour back in February. The plans for the new location include not only offices, but also a retail floor, an art gallery, a photo studio, and conference rooms. Rex, the owner, also plans to continue the Bohemian Market they have held a few times over the past couple of years. His mission is to provide resources and a low-cost place for fresh, young designers and brands to get their start.
Last I heard, the showroom was still working on renovations, but the company is involved with the launch of San Diego Fashion Week in October, which will finally cement San Diego's place in the fashion industry!
