By Home Furnishings Business in on May 1, 2013
Lysanne Pepin, the artist, designer and business maverick behind the boutique Espace Pepin will create a pop up store at the upcoming SIDIM show in Montreal.
Partnering with her brother, Pepin's pop up store will be inspired by pop art and will be showcased May 23-26.
"I wanted to take the funkiest patterns from the '60s and make them my own by blowing them up and mixing them with the current trends," Pepin said.
Within the pop up store, fashion aficionados will be able to find curated pieces from their favorite brands and exclusives from the store. Supported by her brother, photographer and self-proclaimed techie, Pepin launched a Facebook contest for the occasion. Visitors will be invited to dress up in get-ups from Montreal-based designers Melissa Nepton and Martin Lim and strike a pose in their a Pepin Pop Art backdrop.
The photos will be posted on Facebook and the contestant with the most votes will have the chance to win their outfits.
