R&B artist Ne-Yo and Monyetta Shaw, his significant other, welcomed a baby daughter last fall. Now they have opened a new Buckhead boutique, called Emerlyn & Ester.
The store’s Web site is http://www.emerlynandester.com.
The address is 3209 Paces Ferry Place, NW, Suite 7. Phone: 404-848-8494
The shop celebrated its grand opening with a cocktail party Tuesday night. It had been planned for last week, but like so many other events, it was iced out and had to be postponed.
Ne-Yo and Mo, as she is known, shown at right, welcomed a fashionable crowd including actress Vivica A. Fox and her fiance, Omar “Slim” White; designer Elene Cassis; Stacey Weiss, the wife of Q100’s Bert Weiss and co-founder of Bert’s Big Adventure; Jessica Dauler, who writes the Jessica Shops blog and is married to Q100’s Jeff Dauler; Lisa Rayner Tush, business development manager with 3rd home.com; Jamahl King with the Steps Events Planning Firm who put the event together; publicists Kitsy Rose, who worked on the event, along with Karen Canavan and Kristin Cowart-Pierce.
The owners, who named the boutique after their grandmothers, also welcomed family members to their big night.
The store sells apparel from Camilla and Marc, Catherine Malandrino, Hannah Jo, Faith Connexions, Stella and Jamie, Single, Allison Parris, Super Trash, Sena, Contrarian, Gypsy 05, Twisted Hearts, Sky, Hoff by Hoff and Sassy Bax.
Update! We just heard from the photographer who took this photo of Mo:
“I have done photography for Mo and Ne-Yo for the past year or so and was shooting at the Grand Opening and they are probably some of the nicest clients I have,” David Barrack said in an email. “Mo is not only sweet but very sharp and is and will continue to do great things. Not only that, but seeing both Mo and Ne-Yo honor their parents at the event and name the place after their grandmothers is the kind of family value everyone should have.”
