Opening Ceremony

The story of Opening Ceremony began with Opening Ceremony the boutique. Located in downtown Manhattan, the Opening Ceremony store was built around a unique concept: to pit the sales of emerging designers—both local and global—against each other to see who’s country could make the most money. It was this same playful, forward-thinking mindset went into creating the company’s in-house line. Known for turning out punchy, of-the-moment pieces, their platformed shoes and graphic clothing are the definition of statement making.
