Move over Barneys, there's a new luxury department store off Fifth. We think our founder said it best: "Finally, a decent shoe department downtown!" Last night the new Saks Downtown was unveiled at Brookfield Place in the Financial District to much fanfare, with a sprawling red carpet walked by the likes of Mary J. Blige, Lindsay Ellingson, and of course Saks fashion director, Roopal Patel. Queen Wintour was in attendance, rubbing elbows with designers, DJs, and plenty of models. With a new stadium space to be taken over by a different designer installation every 30 days, the location certainly appeals to the young creatives who tend to reside in the lower numbers of Manhattan. We know we've found our new favorite place to shop!
