Quick retail turnover is the name of the game on Stanton Street between Suffolk and Clinton.  In the immediate wake of news that Casa de Rodriguez closed its brick-and-mortar shop, a new upscale tenant is already on the verge of opening at 156 Stanton.  Meet We the People, a new fashion collective which reportedly aims to showcase the work of independent designers.

Fittingly hidden behind torn WWD magazine clippings, renovations are now at full steam.  For much of Saturday afternoon, the front doors were wide open revealing progress.  And even though interior work is not yet completed, a store flag is already in place.

Below is the mission statement of We the People:

WE THE PEOPLE will be opening its doors in New York City’s Lower East Side in Spring 2010. It was established in response to the growing need for talented, emerging designers to gain exposure by providing a space to showcase their line.

The carefully curated designers’ lines will marry classic style with a splash of edginess.
