50th & France has transformed into JOYVILLE for the holidays! Now that we've unveiled the tree, it's time to learn a little about the business owners who help make Joyville so joyful!
Meet Lisa, the Founder and Owner of Bespoke Hair Artisans.
Q: When did your business open?
Q: What inspired you to start your business?
A: I've spent my entire life immersed in the beauty business. It's in my DNA. My Mom has spent over a decade as a hairdresser, the 2nd employee Horst Rechelbacher hired when he founded Aveda. I spent years as a leader at a world-class salon company. I couldn't see myself retiring from an industry I was so passionate about. I had a growing desire to create my own brand. I've always been instilled with the value of hard work, ownership and self-sustainability.
Q: Why did you choose 50th & France as home to your business?
A: I knew 50th & France is where I wanted to be. Bespoke's ideal client is one who enjoys personalized treatments in an experiential and modern environment that offers a more peaceful pace. Our client has a high appreciation for the best quality, craftsmanship, design and service. The 50th & France district is composed of local retailers who have strong ties to the community or national retailers who only operate one or two stores within a given market. It's a collaborative neighborhood that shares a vision for offering the same unique experiences our clients seek.
Q: What do you love about the district?
A: 50th & France really is a neighborhood. It's a place where people live, and it's a place where people are out walking, shopping and enjoying the great restaurants and festivities of the holidays.
Q: Anything you’d like to promote?
A: Bespoke will be hosting a Make Up Event on December 15th from 10am – 6pm, and several shopping events throughout the month of December. We’ll be customizing the best holiday makeup looks for every occasion!
EAF: Empowering Artistic Females
This year, we are turning our Edina Art Fair acronym into our powerful theme: Empowering Artistic Females (EAF!)
Our featured artist is Karina Llergo with her piece "Break Through" which beautifully represents the power and movement of women. Many of our past featured artists have been women (and so many of our artists each year are women!) This year, 57% of our artists are women and over 70 of the businesses at 50th & France are owned by women!
You will be able to purchase Karina's piece on merchandise at the Information Booths during the fair!
We will also be selling temporary tattoos of Karina's piece at both Info booths at the art fair. All proceeds from the tattoo sales will go to Ready For Success.
Ready for Success provides low-income women and men with gently-used and new professional clothing, accessories, and new personal care items suitable for job interviews and the workplace.
Another activity available in the U.S. Bank Kids Zone is our community art project. We will have small chalkboards with markers asking guests "What Empowers You?". Make sure to tag us in your community art project and art fair pictures on social media with the hashtag #EAFempower
Stay tuned on our Facebook page for different art fair specials from our local businesses throughout the weekend as well.
We are excited to continue to support all of our women artists and business owners at 50th & France!
