Part showroom, part workshop, part storefront, Department of Curiosities is in a league of its own. The brainchild of fashion designers Jamie Hayes of Production Mode and Gerry Quinton of Morua, Department of Curiosities was originally intended to be a shared studio space and morphed into a Logan Square shop. Both designers embrace "slow fashion," emphasizing quality over quantity, and aim to make the process of design and sewing interactive and transparent to their customers. Expect to find leather goods from Production Mode, and structured garments and hand stitched corsets from Morua, all made in-house. The space also offers classes, such as "corset making for beginners" and mini markets, like "Cabinet of Curiosities," featuring guest artisans and purveyors of fine objects, jewellery and prints.
