Leigh Lezark, Xuan Xuan Li and Fiona Byrne – Designer Xuanxuan Li debuts XLLULLAN F/W 2018 – Opening event for her new Soho gallery pop-up shop – New York City – 04/03/2018
Soho came alive in the 1970s, when an influx of artists began to live and work in the huge, light-filled lofts of cast-iron buildings left behind by the industrial age. While less eccentric and more commercial today than its artistic heyday, Soho remains a creative force through its galleries, boutiques, and unmatched sense of style. For shoppers, people-watchers, and street photographers, this neighborhood is a paradise.
Soho ranges from the maniacal tourism of Broadway to quiet, idyllic streets with locals-only vibes. There is something to satisfy just about anyone at any hour of the day. In the morning, you can take your coffee in the backyard of a surf shop, or have a boozy brunch at a lively bistro. In the afternoon, you can haggle with a street vendor, or get your retail therapy at designer stores. In the evening, you can attend an intimate reading at a bookstore, or indulge in a night of bar-hopping. Whichever way you lean, days and dollars are well spent in Soho.
