8&9 Clothing's "The Showroom" Opening Hosted By Wu-Tang's Raekwon

Streetwear company 8&9 Clothing celebrated the opening of "The Showroom" with a meet and greet with the legendary Wu-Tang member Raekwon. The event was sponsored by Remy V and had surprise celebrity appearances by Supa Cindy of 99 Jamz, DJ Sam Sneak of Maybach Music Group, Frank Gore of the San Franciso 49ers ,rap artist Young Scooter, South Florida artist Iceberg, YMCMB artist Corey Gunz and much more.

The new space is 2800 square feet and includes a boutique showroom, offices, photography studio and warehouse with a private gated lot. 8&9 is a Miami based independent streetwear company. Founder and creative director Ray Guilbault says the showroom theme is old fashion American hard work, "that's how we built our brand so it was important to incorporate significant elements when designing our office/showroom." Fixtures constructed of iron pipe and early 1900's reclaimed wood are complimented by a 40 foot distressed flag mural and raw concrete floors. The gated lot enhances the private experience of the typically appointment only showroom boutique which will open to the public only for special events.
