Photo of the Day – September 14, 2010: Wink & Flip
Wink & Flip designer and founder Natasha Spedalle has beautiful, sparkly baubles under her tent at the Hester Street Fair. She handmakes many of her designs, and she sells carefully selected commercial items as well. The collections include beads, crystals, metals of all colors, and headbands made from ribbons and fabrics. Earlier this year, a Wink & Flip necklace appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue.
Wink & Flip’s merchandise and pricing appeal to an audience of all ages and styles, and Natasha chooses every piece with care and flair. This level of attention to detail explains why Wink & Flip has been in business for over six years and the accolades Natasha has received as a young entrepreneur. She also started the Pearl Project, which provides beautiful faux pearl necklaces for Dress for Success Worldwide. “Since its inception, The Pearl Project has donated more than 6,000 pearl necklace sets to needy women across the country,” says Natasha on her website. A portion of every purchase goes towards the Pearl Project.
You can come try on Wink & Flip’s treasures on Saturdays at the Hester Street Fair. She also holds trunk shows on college campuses during the school year. Check her website and her Twitter feed to see where she’ll be next.
