NEW YORK – Grand Rapids-based and Filipino-American fashion designer, RC Caylan opened his flagship store in Breton Village Mall, MI on August 15, 2020.
RC Caylan Atelier features a retail area, as well as a production space for premade and custom designs. New collections such as his own brand of luxury home fragrances and stylish bags in partnership with a local handbag designer are now available at the store.
Caylan’s designs have been worn by celebrities walking red carpets around the world, as well as models walking the runways of New York Fashion Week. Caylan’s current workshop is just enough space for him and his team to work on custom orders.
Despite the successes Caylan has experienced so far in his career, this retail space is an important milestone for the designer, his team and his career. The 1,062-square-foot location will offer more space for Caylan to display his work.
“I have always dreamed of having my own retail store,” Caylan said. “This move is a huge step in my career, and I am very excited to be able to share my brand with our local fashion enthusiasts.”
Breton Village has welcomed a variety of fashion, health and fitness brands over the years. In addition to the area’s focused retail offerings, it also maintains close connections to the local community.
“It has not been easy for me to really connect to our local community because I don’t currently offer that retail aspect,” Caylan said. “But this time, it’s going to be different. Fashion enthusiasts will have access to me personally — whether they’re looking for ready-couture or custom-made garments.”
RC Caylan Atelier is now open to shoppers. Visit the store at Breton Village Mall at 1876 Breton Road SE. For store hours and inquiries, please call 616-259-7171. (From Grace Labaguis/Synergy Production & Marketing, Inc.)
