Talkin’ Shop: N Harlem

Since April 2006, the boutique N Harlem New York has melded downtown polish with uptown panache, catering to the eclectic tastes of Harlem’s fashionable denizens.  Inhabiting two glorious floors on 116th Street, the shop stocks apparel and accessories for men and women as well as beauty products and home goods for stylish living.  Owners Nikoa Evans, Larry Ortiz and Lenn Shebar like to mix it up: established brands such as Rock & Republic and Armand Basi share space with emerging talent such as Omar and Goldspun.

The inviting space has been the launching pad for many a product debut including Diane Da Costa’s Tai Lip Shine from Three Custom Color Specialists. This week, Dirty Dolls Lingerie premieres its line of naughty underpinnings for the curvaceous woman (30C – 44DDD) on Thursday, February 5th from 6 – 8:30pm.  Sticklers for perfect fit, the Dirty Dolls will be on hand for custom bra fittings.  Reserve an appointment online at

Enjoy a cocktail as triple-threat performer and Dirty Dolls muse, Carmen Barika stars in a burlesque show featuring the designs at 7pm. Be sure to RSVP: 212-961-1036 or
