DC's Bailiwick Clothing Company Opens New Pop-Up Shop at The Wharf
Published October 7, 2020
The Wharf, Washington, DC’s world-class, mixed-use waterfront neighborhood, announced today an addition to its diverse list of retail offerings: a pop-up shop by Bailiwick Clothing Company featuring Shea Yeleen skincare products. Located at 49 District Square SW, the Black-owned pop-up shop will be open through the end of the year.
Brother duo J.C. and Jeff Smith founded Bailiwick Clothing Company in 2015 to create clothing that truly captures the pride and positive energy generated by the people of the nation’s capital. Through t-shirts, hoodies and now face masks, Bailiwick Clothing features images and messages that ring true to those who work, live and play in DC.
The shop will have classics including one of their best-selling designs featuring the city’s area code, “202” in a bold font inspired by the city’s flag. The Foo Fighters’ lead singer, Dave Grohl, also known for headlining The Anthem’s first concert, has been seen sporting the iconic shirt. The brothers also plan to use their shop at The Wharf as a “test lab” to launch potential products and release new styles and colors that can be found exclusively at this location.
“We’re super excited for this opportunity to bring Bailiwick Clothing to a pop-up store at The Wharf,” said J.C. Smith, Co-founder of Bailiwick Clothing Company. “The Wharf is one of the premier destinations in the city drawing in people from all over. We can’t wait to introduce this audience to our brand while giving our loyal customers a new way to engage with us. We’re working to create a unique, fun shopping experience that’s reflective of the city’s dynamic spirit.”
Shea Yeleen is known for their high-quality beauty products using 100 percent natural, unrefined shea butter produced in Africa by women-owned cooperatives. DC-based Founder and CEO, Rahama Wright created the brand to economically empower African women through the marketing and sale of shea butter products including lip balm, cream and soap. All products are handmade locally in small batches ensuring quality.
