Aviatrix NYC, the hidden gem cherished by artists, Burners, and underground fashion aficionados, has emerged from the shadows and into the limelight, thanks to a recent feature in Vogue’s profile of NYC’s Costume Closet. This captivating brand is the brainchild of Michelle Palmer, a multifaceted talent who weaves her expertise as a designer, aerialist, performer, and model into the creation of exquisite, custom headpieces that cater to individuals of all genders. The brand’s exclusive launch event marked a significant milestone, offering a glimpse into the world of Aviatrix NYC.
In October 2023, the curtain officially rises on Aviatrix NYC’s public launch at the ChaShaMa Gallery, strategically situated in the heart of the garment district at 266 West 37th Street.
