Niche Bazaar Studio
About Niche Bazaar Studio
Niche Bazaar Studio is a permanent extension of retail store Niche Optical Tailor Glasgow (since 1999). This space evolved to fulfil the ever expanding needs of both its own line manufacturing and their clients. The SWG3 studio gives them the space to event, design, customise and style their collections and individual clients. They see the Studio as an ever evolving space.
Each Niche Bazaar Collection (bi annual) is created with the individual in mind, a person who enjoys that which is not overly designed.
“I am a native Glaswegian, who spent my formative optical retailing and designing years in London. I trained in the art of frame making at E.B. Meyrowitz Old Bond St, where the optical process was akin to that of a Saville Row Tailor, with each piece being hand drawn and totally bespoke for the client. I opened my first store in Chelsea in 1995, returning to Scotland in 1999 to set up Niche Optical Tailor which opened in 2000. Retailing is my job but design and manufacturing are my passion, hence the studio….finally. Our next goal of course is to bring our own line manufacturing from the infamous Veneto region here to Glasgow.” – Brenda Connelly – Designer / Owner
