The old Seaport Flowers location at 218 Hicks Street will soon be home to jewelry designer Dara Ettinger, who is moving her flagship store from Los Angeles to Brooklyn Heights. The store’s grand opening will be on April 30.
Ettinger, a graduate of Parsons School of Design, worked at Polo Ralph Lauren, Anthropologie, Cynthia Steffe and others before striking out on her own. Many of her designs feature big, bright and polished natural stones and she’s attracted quite a following (just check Tumblr!). Celebs such as Jessica Alba and Paula Abdul have been spotted wearing her jewelry.
