Ginger Root Design Opens a New Showroom

The designers are movin' on up

After eighteen months in the basement, the hardest working girls in sew business are moving on up.

Kristen Swenson and Erin Derge of Ginger Root Design have opened a new first-floor studio, complete with a wide cutting table and dedicated sewing room, that brings their line of repurposed clothing to the top of its game.

Upgrade your wardrobe with Ginger Root’s summer-ready City bloomers and Upside Down shirts; elevate your guy’s closet with reimagined lean-cut khakis dyed dark red, blue, or bright green.

The expansion also doubles the display space for other local designers (with the addition of one new designer a month): Get a boost from Accoutre’s bow ties, punch-colored felt fascinators by Ciao Nina, Clara Cantor’s geometric earrings, and painted handbags from Elizabeth Graeber.

The only out-of-towner stocked? Derge’s jewelry designer mother.

Because success doesn’t mean you have to forget where you came from.
