Opening Ceremony Closes All Retail Locations This Year

The global retail fashion brand comes to a halt, temporarily pausing retail store operations this year and maybe for a great while. Here’s what we know.

Opening Ceremony officially announced the closing of all their retail locations this year causing an utter shock to the fashion industry. 


The retail brand has housed collections from the great brands like Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang and Rodarte, while also opening doors to young designers from all over the world. From New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo, Opening Ceremony took part of welcoming artists around the world to inspire and introduce the location’s identity through each fashion piece sold.

Opening Ceremony together with their new partners, the New Guards Group, will be stepping back from multi-brand retail to evaluate the Opening Ceremony experience and come back in the great future with a refresh. However, the brand has clarified in the farewell post that this change is for the better and they will be taking this time off to fully regenerate for a strong comeback in the near future.
