NYFW Spring 2014: Claire Distenfeld's Disposable Camera Diary
Senior Digital Projects Editor
Between the well-appointed townhouses of 69th Street on NYC's East Side sits Fivestory, the antidote to the at-times-stuffy retail scene of Madison Avenue. Inside the converted home, you'll find designer clothing and accessories from Creatures of the Wind, Ostwald Helgason, Carven and a seemingly endless roster of other brands. The store itself begs you to explore every room and gives you the distinct feeling that you're in more of a home than a retail mecca. The patterned floors, merchandise and setting are all the brainchild of Claire Distenfeld. Having become a fan of the shop and Claire's antics (via Instagram), we quickly decided that she'd be a perfect candidate for our NYFW disposable camera diaries, following model Soo Joo Park.
