WWD reports that the e-tailer found the 40,000-square-foot space, situated on Kent Street in Williamsburg, for an undisclosed price — but surely it was a bargain, right? Of picking Billyburg, Cathy Beaudoin, president of Amazon Fashion, explained, "We think of it as joining an emerging neighborhood that's known for its creative talent and community. It's going to be a mecca — we hope — for creative talent." Along with more jobs, the mecca should provide "thousands of on-model product images a year" for Amazon Fashion, Shopbop, and MyHabit, "with the goal of enhancing the presentation of the fashion offerings online and introducing even more engaging editorial for the latter two brands." The studio, Amazon's sixth, plans to open its doors come spring, enough time for you to type up your résumé (currently scrawled on the back of a weekday brunch receipt).
