FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Heights + Kenchi Teams with Tom Miller for an Afternoon of Architectural History
(New York, NY July 1, 2013) The Standing Room by Heights+ Kenchi has teamed with Architectural Historian Tom Miller to present a casual reception and discussion at 5:30 PM on July 19 2013. Just as Heights + Kenchi keeps alive the tradition and attention to detail in fine menswear, so too Miller keeps alive the history of Manhattan’s architecture.
In four years, Miller’s website, Daytonian in Manhattan, has grown from a quiet repository of Miller’s extensive knowledge of Manhattan’s buildings and monuments to an invaluable online resource visited by thousands every day. Miller’s histories capture the scandals and the pageantry, the good times and the hard times, the notable and the mundane -- in short, he documents the humanity of Manhattan as reflected in its buildings and monuments.
Tom Miller was born in Dayton, Ohio -- America’s heartland; and moved to New York City in 1979. An architectural historian, he has investigated and researched the stories of Manhattan for decades. Miller urges New Yorkers and visitors alike to “never to stop being a tourist,” and “never stop looking up.”
The Standing Room’s owner and lead designer, Yunusa Kenchi, is no newcomer to the fashion industry. His unique, well-crafted designs are the result of 15+ years working for a variety of reputable brands and labels. “Our design principle is to focus on bringing a combination of craftsmanship, individualism, and personality to menswear.”
Inspirations for Kenchi’s designs come from the classic garments worn during the key fashion eras of the 20th Century. “By definition we’re a menswear brand which pays homage to the spirit and aesthetics from the 1920s and ‘30s, with an emphasis on what we call the ‘Romantic Esthetic,’ ” says Luis-Arturo Padilla, Sales Manager at the Standing Room. “We bring a balance of individual personality combined with a little sartorial know how."
Their admiration for classic fashion combined with an eye for contemporary trends makes the brand appealing and eye-catching without being too loud or too dated. The brand’s appreciation for and nods to history make a pairing with an architectural historian a logical choice for what promises to be an informative and enjoyable event.
The Standing Room by Heights + Kenchi is open daily from 12 PM - 7 PM Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and from 1 PM – 7 PM Friday and Sunday.
