NEW YORK — With her temporary store on Spring Street in SoHo closed since August, Lisa Perry is packing up her design studio and heading to her next adventure.
Perry is moving uptown and in mid-November will open a 4,000-square-foot flagship at 976 Madison Avenue between 76th and 77th streets. The former Citibank branch has bankers’ glass offices where Perry’s design staff will work, giving customers a glimpse of fabrics, patterns and inspiration boards, and clothes in various stages of completion. “It will be like an open kitchen in a restaurant,” Perry said. Another unusual aspect of the space is an authentic bank vault in the basement that may be used for art exhibits.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
