Homes of Brooklyn is a monthly series where we talk with artists, designers and tastemakers in their own spaces in the borough we love – Brooklyn. In episode 2 we take you inside the home of fashion designer, Reuben Reuel of Demestiks New York. We are sincere fans of Reuben’s work. His Dutch African wax print dresses have been spotted in Harper’s Bazaar, New York Magazine, and on some of our favorite celebrities (oh you know, just Queen Bey herself). One step into Reuben’s home and we could immediately feel the space that nurtures his creativity. From a collection of R&B records stacked in his fitting room, to the colorful display of Dutch African and vintage fabrics that are used in his work, his home is a true reflection of the soulful spirit that guides him. Click play to explore the Bed-Stuy home and studio of your new favorite fashion designer, Reuben Reuel.
