Morgan Kylee Henzlik makes no apologies for wanting to shake up Atlanta’s shopping culture. The twenty-six-year-old entrepreneur opened her eponymous boutique in mid-August with a promise to provide something different from the conventional women’s styles that are saturating Buckhead stores.
He’s only twenty-five, but designer (and Atlanta native) Wes Gordon has already made quite a name for himself in high fashion.
Sandpiper Turns Twenty-five
In the fickle world of women’s fashion boutiques, reaching the quarter-century mark is as implausible as finding a Birkin bag at a yard sale. So how is it possible that Sandpiper has been around for twenty-five years?
