On May 26, Subdivision celebrated its one-year anniversary. The store, which specializes in obscure and hard to find t-shirts and clothing apparel from around the world, is situated in a small underground spot in Gastown, Vancouver (2-306 Water St.).
The night began with lots of eager customers lining up for their chance to purchase the limited Subdivision x Devilock t-shirts exclusive for the event. But like every good thing, it must come to an end, and the owner of the shop was eventually forced to utter those dreaded words "Sorry, Sold out."
Regardless of this, the party went on until 11 p.m. Everyone left with a smile on their face, even if they didn't cop the coveted tees. Those who stuck around were entertained by fresh faces, free drinks and music, spun by DJs Dana D and Rico Uno (Freshest Kids).
Anthony Mak, the owner of Subdivision told MVRemix.com that he would like to thank everyone who has showed support in the past year. "Thank you for showing love and imma still try my best to bring that hot shit into the shop."
Mak, who hand picks all the clothing that goes into his store, believes that the reason many haven't heard of the store is not because of its "secretive location," but rather that he does not like to heavily advertise. "I like it to remain low-key. I want it to be something you hear about, not something that's all up in your face."
