Today marks ten years to the day that I founded SoHo Memory Project on January 1, 2011. Many of you have been with me since day one and many, many others joined us along the way. What began as a blog I thought only my mom would read has turned into a nonprofit organization with an archive that has been promised to the New York Historical Society. Together we built our collective memory of SoHo, past and present, grit and glory, from scratch.
Parsons students meld history and fashion into a design for a shift. The finished product presents a visual interpretation of SoHo from the point of view of designers who were all born after the transformation of SoHo from a community of artists to a retail hub—blank slates in a way, in that they never experienced SoHo as anything but the home of Kanye and Nine West.
