••• Racked got into the WWD article about Foundrae and its forthcoming store on Lispenard: “‘We wanted to work in a way that was more meaningful for us and also allowed us to be more accessible to our family,” [Beth Bugdaycay] told WWD. […] Aside from ready-to-wear (expect $350 shirts, $500 dresses, and up to $2,000 for leathers), Foundrae will also sell shoes and jewelry, which can be customized in the store. The number eight, which stands for karma, stars, a crown atop a pyramid, or an upside-down triangle, for example, can be embossed or added to some jewelry and even clothing.”

As you know, three of our four hills, (Grassy, Slide and Discovery) are already at their rough grade (aka their approximate height before adding soil for planting grass, trees and other vegetation).
