Modern Fashion & Style Quits Orchard Street for Good
This image has been archived or removed.
The stock of leather vendors on Orchard Street continues to freefall. Four months after Daniel’s Leather shuttered and relocated to Jersey, Modern Fashion & Style decided to call it quits.
The store has been closed for over a month, its awning fabric cut out (usually the telltale sign).
Not completely surprising, though. The retail unit had been peddled on the open market by Misrahi Realty some six months ago. At the time, they were seeking $6,500 per month for a measly 650 square-feet. (Remember that Adam Sandler picked one of the vendors here to appear in The Cobbler)
Only four legit leather vendors now remain between East Houston and Delancey Streets. That number includes the refugee Cellini Uomo which fled the Pink Building during its mass retail liquidation.
