Opening Ceremony's online shop was founded in 2002 by Carol Lim & Humberto Leon as a place to share their passions for travel, art, and fashion. Inspired by a trip to Hong Kong, the two decided to leave their corporate jobs to realize their unique dream. What began as a single store on a quiet street in downtown New York is now a global community with outposts in New York, London, and Los Angeles, a department store in Tokyo, a wholesale showroom, an in-house clothing line, a blog, an e-commerce site, a TV channel, and an annual magazine. Brands on Opening Ceremony's website include: OPENING CEREMONY, 202 FACTORY, ACNE STUDIOS, ADAM SELMAN, ADIDAS ORIGINALS X OPENING CEREMONY,
AHLEM, CARVEN, CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION, FUCKING AWESOME X CHLOE SEVIGNY, CHRISTOPHER KANE, and many more.
