Industrial Decay

Full styling composition included

The once thriving industrial waterfront that helmed Brooklyn’s 19th-century economic dominance, slowly shifts into urban decay. Many of the historic dockyards, factories and warehouses that once supported thousands of immigrants in New York City, have succumbed to atrophy or are being quickly raised by developers, keen on their commercial potential.

We trace Kristina, as she navigates the remnants of Brooklyn’s once booming Red Hook and Williamsburg-districts; clad in various fall 2010 wares that fuse the area’s industrial past, with it’s casually-chic and hip future.
