Christina Milian has kicked of 2016 in a major way, splashing up on headlines after rave reviews for her role as Vanessa on FOX’s new hit sitcom “Grandfathered,” where she stars alongside John Stamos, Paget Brewster and Josh Peck. Milian is also the star of her own hit reality show on E!, “ChristinaMilian Turned Up” which follows the multifaceted starlet in her everyday life as she juggles motherhood, her family and career.
In December 2015, Milian returned to the music scene with a more sophisticated and alluring sound offering her fans a four-track EP titled 4U that followed up to her 2006 album, So Amazin. The highly anticipated project offered the viral singles “Like Me”, a west coast up-tempo cut that features rap icon Snoop Dogg — as well as “Do It” which is a provocative mid-sultry vibe that features rap-star, Lil Wayne. Milian also released stunning visuals to both singles that featured her in her element.
Continuing to build her entrepreneurial repertoire, actress and singer-songwriter Christina Milian opens the doors for her store, We Are Pop Culture, this past Monday. The store began online back in November 2014. Shortly after launching the online version, We Are Pop Culture was featured on KTLA. Ever since, the brand has grown immensely. Eight months after the feature, Christina made the decision to open the brand new store front on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles.
We Are Pop Culture, as a brand, highlights lifestyle, pop culture, and its influences on the world today. The company focuses on providing customers with visually stimulating, thought provoking, and trendsetting products that fit into their everyday lives. This Street-wear and Casual-wear clothing for the modern-day woman is edgy, funky, comfy, and trendy.
Specialty fashion brand, Free People, is set to open its first Baltimore boutique in the growing Harbor East neighborhood on April 3, 2015. Housed in a 2,545 square-foot retail space, Free People is excited to bring its coveted eclectic mix of apparel and intimates to the development. Centrally located near the heart of Harbor East, on the corner of Aliceanna and Exeter Streets, the location will be Free People’s 105th boutique, and the fourth in the state of Maryland.
“We are very excited to be a part of the continued development of Harbor East,” says Free People Director of Retail, Beth Wehagen, “It’s one of the most exciting waterfront projects on the east coast and we are thrilled to be a part of it!”
“It is with great pleasure that we welcome Free People to Harbor East,” stated Tim O’Donald, President of Harbor East Management Group. “This much touted brand is a wonderful complement to the neighborhood and to our retail offerings.”
Free People’s Baltimore boutique will be ready for spring with a sales floor of well-stocked sun dresses and cut-off shorts for warmer weather and festival season. A “wash shop” will feature Free People’s newest relaxed basics such as tees and chinos in the brand’s most turbulent dyes and faded wash techniques. The color white will have a moment, featured in every style from jeans to jackets to tanks. The remaining sales floor will be nicely juxtaposed with simplistic silhouettes in line with Free People’s clean and cool spring trends. In addition, the brand’s coveted ‘Intimately Free People’ line of bras, undies, slips, seamless layering pieces, and loungewear will have a dedicated space within the boutique to round out the assortment.
The space has been designed to feel like the Free People girl’s workshop with a mix of rugged elements and feminine details throughout. Guests are welcomed by a blackened steel storefront, custom double doors and a special lighting moment at the entry. Inside, the space is delineated with a varied ceiling that changes in height and material throughout, including reclaimed hemlock beams. Interior finishes include repurposed bead board, wide plank wood flooring, patchwork quilt curtains and glitter plaster throughout. Yarn-filled cubbies add a bright array of color behind checkout.
The boutique will celebrate on opening day, Friday, April 3, from 6-8pm. The first 50 customers will receive a tote bag giveaway, light refreshments will be served, and store stylists will be on hand to give in-store styling sessions.
Each Free People store offers personalized shopping experiences from a team of expert stylists. Customers can schedule a one-on-one appointment with their favorite stylist, as well as interact and gain inspiration through the brand’s online Style Community, FP Me. In addition to offering personal styling, fans can look forward to a variety of in-store events to be hosted at the Free People Harbor East boutique throughout the year.
Free People will be located at 1001 Aliceanna St., Suite A, Harbor East, Baltimore, MD 21202. Store hours will run Monday-Saturday 10am-9pm, and Sunday 11am-7pm.
