In 2010 as part of their Phase II Taylor street expansion, GAFFTA will open a new project boutique called Archetype. With an emphasis on wearables, this unique product-focused space will support emerging local and international designers around the principles of technologically-inspired and sustainability-minded fashion. Spearheaded by GAFFTA Fashion Initiatives Lead, Melissa Marie and Creative Director for Archetype Boutique, Jarred Garza, Archetype will extend GAFFTA’s mission of building social consciousness through digital culture onto the runway and into the marketplace.
From December 18th-20th, GAFFTA invites you to a “Broadcast” preview fashion and shopping event featuring a selection of designers, lines and products indicative of Archetype’s aesthetic and personality.
