Fun, funky clothing available for two days only at The Studio

LACONIA —  For two days only, artist Grace Napoleon from Folk Couture is bringing her one-of-a-kind up-cycled clothing to Downtown Laconia for a trunk show at The Studio located at 50 Canal Street. Napoleon shows regularly at Brooklyn Flea in New York City, the SoWa Vintage Market in Boston, Craftopia in Rhode Island and more.

Melissa McCarthy, owner of The Studio, met Napoleon at the SoWa Market last summer, and the two agreed to do a trunk show last fall. It was wonderfully successful, and now Folk Couture is back with all new clothing. "Grace has an amazing eye, and she knows how clothing works on people," says McCarthy, who owns three of the hand-sewn dresses. "She can look at you, hand you a dress, and it's amazing how wonderfully they fit!" McCarthy encourages people to come, have fun and experience these unique garments.
Because the artist is travelling, the trunk show begins Friday afternoon, probably around one, but the Studio will be open late, until at least 7 p.m., so people can come by after work. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. On Sunday beginning at 11 a.m., there is a workshop in creating your own Folk Couture with clothing that you bring; call 603-455-8008 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
