While her boutique Fivestory is the shop destination of the Upper East Side, owner Claire Distenfeld’s vision is that of a woman who has traveled all over. Forward thinking and worldly as her ideas are, she herself remains incredibly down-to-earth.
“My name is Claire and I AM ABLE to extract the power of a soul through another man’s sewing. I always find it ironic and enlightening, when a customer’s personality is able to shine through fashion – and moreover the dialogue and journey between the designer’s original influences when making that article of clothing, to the power and individuality it gives to the customer. It’s something that never gets old”
- Claire Distenfeld, Owner at FiveStory
