Brittany York has been busy lately. Not only is she founder and buyer of one of Dallas’ hottest clothing boutiques, Milk & Honey, but she is also preparing her newest store, Lion & Witch, for its summer opening. Her unique style is seen in not only the clothing she selects, but the interior design, for which she is responsible too.
Lion & Witch will be recognizable by its its sparse (and clever) storefront: Only a wardrobe, designed by Dallas artist Gary Buckner of Stash designs, will be visible from the outside. Once inside, shoppers will see an industrial chic design accented by black minimalist features against white walls smoothed over with the hues of pinks and corals found in the copper rods and art.
