Retail Boutique Owner
Marjory Warren Boutique has lived and breathed women’s clothing and accessories in New York City for over 35 years.
Originally located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Marjory Warren Boutique came into being as a craft studio where the eponymous Marjory Warren or “Marj” held specialty quilting classes. Eventually, she branched out to constructing hand-crafted appliques and similar items. The creations were immediately popular with her quilting class and soon, she found herself adorning the clothing of neighborhood women who by word of mouth had heard of her personalized creations. Ever increasing demand quickly allowed a move to Madison Avenue, where she expanded her inventory to include clothing, jewelry, and accessories for a certain type of discerning New York woman.
Marjory Warren Boutique enjoyed a 30+ year run on the Upper East Side, attracting new and familiar faces from the neighborhood and beyond. Casual yet artistic, whimsical clothing dressed a diverse group of women seeking comfort and style in their clothing and accessories.
Now run by family member Chris Warren, the store experienced a brief relocation to the East Village, where Chris introduced the store’s vintage collection and brought in new and interesting lines of conscientiously-sourced jewelry and sundries.
In December 2014, Marjory Warren Boutique returned to its Upper East Side roots. Now located at 115 E 96th Street, the store continues to attract women with an eye for style and a penchant for unique accessories. The store has become and will remain a multi-generational haven for unique, diverse women belonging to the community and beyond.
