The World (of Fashion) At Your Fingertips

What do you do when you are hunting down the latest styles from Japan, Germany and Brazil? It is near impossible, especially in this economy, to roam the four corners of the globe and explore the streets in search of the latest trends. Opening Ceremony has been the solution to this dilemma for fashionistas in New York and LA since its launch in 2002. Now, those who can’t make it to LA or NYC are in luck because Opening Ceremony has expanded and launched its first online store.

Opening Ceremony carries both established and well-known brands along with smaller labels- focusing on a different country every year and generating buzz around the globe. This genius idea was thought up by, not surprising, two Berkeley Alumnus Carol Lim and Humberto Leon who met during their university years at Cal. Opening Ceremony has continued to be a massive success at both the LA and NY shop. The current theme, USA vs Japan, has led the store to collaborations with beloved Japanese toy company, Sanrio, and Japanese retail giant, Uniqlo. Although a five-hour road trip to the Los Angeles shop may be worth the trouble, it is no longer necessary.
