Holidays at the Pearl Pop-Up Shop
In the spirit of the Holiday season, the Embassy of Haiti in Washington, DC hosted its second pop-up shop on Sunday, December 17, 2017 entitled “Holidays at the Pearl.” After the tremendous success of the inaugural pop-up shop held at the Embassy on May 21st to close out Haiti Week in DC 2017, both the Embassy and Bien Abyé decided to collaborate again to offer the general public an opportunity to experience a Haitian Christmas while doing some fine holiday shopping.
For the occasion, the Embassy was transformed into a Haitian Winter Wonderland where Haitian-American entrepreneurs who are contributing to the reclaiming of Haiti’s title as the Pearl of the Antilles displayed their collection of products sourced and/or inspired by Haiti, including clothing, fashion accessories, home goods and gourmet food products.
In addition to viewing and purchasing these marvelous products to the sound of Haitian Christmas music while savoring the Embassy’s signature rum punch, attendees had the opportunity to meet and interact with the designers and entrepreneurs behind the brands.
The event featured products by: Stephanie Cave from Kapha Group, Christelle Paul of Atelier Calla, Eddy Albertini from Deux Noirs by, by Idanoise Joseph of Ida J. Co, and Dayanne Danier. Bien Abyé.
The Embassy pop-up shop is an ongoing initiative. Join our mailing list to receive an invitation to the next one.
