Since launching as a single store on an obscure street on the edges of Manhattan’s SoHo in 2002, Opening Ceremony has grown into a hydra-headed emporium of cool. The company now encompasses six stores in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and London; a wholesale Opening Ceremony line of men’s and women’s wear that is sold in about 400 doors globally, including Barneys New York, Nordstrom, Harvey Nichols, Lane Crawford and Printemps, and a multibrand showroom that represents 10 independent labels.


“At Opening Ceremony, something that has always set us apart is the 360-degree nature of our business. We are designers, but we are also buyers for our stores; we are a showroom for other brands and we are a store where people from all over the world and all walks of life can shop,” said Humberto Leon, cofounder of Opening Ceremony with Carol Lim.
