Creative Fashions closing its doors

By master · March 20th, 2009 · 2 Comments

You may have seen the sign painted on the front of Creative Fashions on Fremont Ave. — the shop is closing this Saturday.

“We have made many friends with all of you over the last 15 years,” reads a letter on the door, written by Carol, Kristy and the staff of Creative Fashions. “We have watched so many dancers go from their first pair of shoes, to auditions for college to continue their career. It will be sad day when we have to lock the doors the final time.” Meanwhile, Sewing Specialties is a separate shop and will continue operations. They’re reachable at 206-818-0870.

    This is sad. My little girl just bought her first ballet slippers there a few months ago. The two women we interacted with were so nice, delicately making sure the shoes fit her. I was only in there a couple of times but it was a wonderful little store! Good luck with whatever y'all do next!

    Very sad indeed. There is only one other dance supply store. Plus Carol, the seamstress, did amazing work. They will be missed!
