Art to Ware: A curated fashion pop-up
The Creative Cookie

Art to Ware is a curated fashion pop-up presented by The Creative Cookie, a Black woman-owned business founded in 2008 by Lesley Ware. Lesley started off as a New York City-based fashion blogger, a sewing studio owner, and author of several titles and publications surrounding fashion and style. Her multi-brand pop-up and storefront Art to Ware will offer her books, additional fashion publications, flowers, textiles, inspiring gifts, and unique clothing. The shop will focus on sustainable, upcycled, and handmade pieces. Lesley is excited about curating some of her favorite things.
