COOL SCHOOL: TASTEMAKERS OF NEW YORK ARE HEAD OF THE CLASS AT THE COOLS JAMBOREE EVENT
NEW YORK, NY (June 27, 2012) – School may be out for summer, but for one night only, New York City’s finest talents will return to classrooms at The Old School on Mott Street to showcase 15,000 square feet of superior fashion, design, art, music and gastronomy. The event, “JAMBOREE” is organized by the Parisian-chic, Manhattan-based startup The Cools. The Cools bridges the gap between culture and commerce by way of an artfully curated environment, both on and offline. An evening of music, dancing, and mingling aspire to bring the coolest kids in New York (and their cool stuff) together in the spirit of old world bazaars.
