Westside Gunn is officially opening his own boutique art gallery, Buffalo Kids.
The flagship is located in Walden Galleria in his home city of Buffalo, New York, and will reportedly stock up on his Fashion Rebel brand and some unreleased collabs with the likes of Nike, plus a selection of original art pieces, magazine, children’s clothing and Westside Gunn-designed hats.
“This is one of the most exciting times of my life. Growing up in Buffalo, Walden Galleria has always been the premier shopping center. At age 14, I started designing clothing and I’ve always been taught the sky’s the limit,” the Griselda titan said. “I wanted to bring a lifestyle brand for the people and give them the highest quality garments at a high fashion designer level. I breathe art and this will give the city something to be proud of. I will do my best to provide experiences the town has never seen before. Thank you for supporting Griselda and now, I present to you, Buffalo Kids.”
Buffalo Kids is set to open in March 2021. Gunn added, “I’ve Always dreamt of my Flagship store and I worked so hard for this, even the mall said they never seen anything like this.. everything designed by myself and team, a place where celebrities will frequently fly in just to experience Buffalo Culture.”
Take a look at the gallery’s offerings on its official webstore.
