PROJECT Presents: In Your Neighborhood

In New York, things were much more intimate with an exclusive 3-day event that took place during men’s market week in January. Attendees were invited to a charming Greenwich Village townhouse which was transformed by a niche curation of vendors who displayed goods on and alongside antique tables and armoires plus a bar serving up Agua Mágica Mezcal, complete with a custom “In Your Neighborhood” tapestry to compliment the aesthetic of the space. Brands, retailers, and in-the-know industry leaders browsed the assortment with long-time connections and left with new friends.

PROJECT Celebrates MAGIC's 90th Anniversary 

PROJECT Las Vegas kicked off with multi-hyphenate Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson taking the stage to host the MAGIC Opening Night Party. This historic milestone was celebrated by our global fashion community over cocktails—compliments of Branson Cognac and Le Chemin Du Roi — bringing together vendors, retailers, and industry experts from PROJECT, MAGIC, and SOURCING at MAGIC.  


Another anniversary we celebrated in Las Vegas was 30 years of ECKŌ Unltd. Designer and co-founder Marc Ecko sat down with Anthony Mastracci, Senior Commerce Editor at Men's Journal, to share with us his first-hand experience developing one of streetwear’s most recognizable brands and the Rhino logo.

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue...
