Project Runway Winner Debuts Pop-Up Boutique

By Christina Najjar | August 28, 2018 | Lifestyle

Fenway just got more adorable. A brand new experiential concept store recently opened to bring inspiration and creativity to the neighborhood. Hourglass is a specialty fashion and lifestyle boutique that will double as a uniquely designed space for Boston’s creative community to create iconic photo and video content. Hourglass is the brainchild of two well known local artists: fashion designer and Project Runway winner Erin Robertson and interior & product designer Nicole Fichera. Both are creative female powerhouse entrepreneurs who adore the city of Boston and are committed to celebrating the city’s vibrant and growing creative community.


The Pop-Up will have three main creative components; a boutique, a studio and a workshop. The Boutique will showcase a selection of couture garments and products designed by local fashion designer and Project Runway winner Erin Robertson, as well as custom jewelry, decor, and lifestyle items by local artist and designer Nicole Fichera. The studio will act as an outlet for the blossoming Boston content creation scene. Don’t miss the destination photography station with fun props perfect for snapping pictures for social media. Finally, Hourglass will be hosting an array of workshops and classes for Boston’s creative community. Think photography, social media, business and entrepreneurship, self-exploration and emotional intelligence, and creative skills including embroidery, hand-lettering, jewelry making, and more.


Hourglass opened its doors earlier this month and will be open through late September, so hurry over and enjoy the creative hub.
